Design and Technology (DT) Vision Statement

At Packmoor Ormiston Academy, children enjoy participating in a variety of DT lessons. Pupils are taught a range of skills that use creativity and imagination, help pupils design and make products considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. We aim for children to learn how to take risks and be resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens for the future.
