Design & Technology

KS3 Intent

At St Julie’s, our intention within the Design and Technology department is to build upon pupil’s prior knowledge of designing, making, evaluating and their technical knowledge gained at key stages one and two according to the National Curriculum subject content for this age range through a carousel system that engages pupils in our four areas that include RM/Graphics, D&T Art, Textiles and Hospitality and Catering.

We expect pupils to have had opportunities at KS1 and KS2 to communicate purposeful and functional ideas using a range of design and make experiences prior to joining us in KS3 and it is our aim to build on this and develop pupil’s knowledge and understanding through a series of practical opportunities encompassing all areas of design and technology at St Julie’s.

DT Graphics/Resistant Materials/Textiles intent

Design and Technology at St Julies is an inspiring and practical subject where pupils are encouraged to use creativity and imagination to develop products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts. KS3 Design and Technology encompasses a broad range of subject knowledge and draws on disciplines such as mathematics, science, computing and art.  When engaging in Design and Technology at St Julies, students are encouraged to take risks and to be resourceful, innovative and enterprising. Nurturing students’ creativity and teaching them, the skills to not only come up with brilliant ideas, but to turn them into reality is the driver. At the heart of Design and Technology at St Julies is the vision to develop students to be problem solvers, communicators, questioners and better decision makers as they learn and understand more about the impact of Design and Technology on the historic and modern-day world.

DT Food intent

Learning how to cook is a crucial life skill for pupils now and in their future. Food preparation and nutrition teaches pupils to understand and apply the principles of nutrition and healthy eating and instils a love for cooking in all pupils. All pupils will be taught how to work safely and hygienically to produce a repertoire of predominantly savoury dishes so that they can feed both themselves and others. They will develop skills in independent learning through cooking and are encouraged to make decisions for themselves They will have an understanding of where their foods come from and understand the functions and seasonality of ingredients used in their practical work.

Art intent

In the Art department at St Julie’s, individual creativity is nurtured and celebrated. We believe that Art is an integral part of a child’s education and it is our responsibility to equip young people with the vocabulary, knowledge and practical skills to communicate their views and experiences of the world to others. Our curriculum encompasses the arts and cultural learning and encourages our students to gain an awareness, empathy and appreciation of difference and diversity.

At KS3, students are introduced to the formal elements through observational drawing to paint handling and Colour Theory; they are used as the building blocks for creating and talking about Art and Design throughout the Key Stages. Each theme begins with recording and exploring their observations and experiences from a variety of primary and secondary sources. As the projects develop, pupils are introduced to a range of creative making skills through practical lessons, which are underpinned by research into artists, craftspeople and designers from a variety of movements and cultures. To support their research skills, students are exposed to subject specific terminology that develops and enhances their vocabulary and their ability to confidently express their views and informed opinions. These skills are built upon with increasing depth and complexity as learners progress throughout their art education. In all project areas students will have opportunities to review and evaluate learning through annotation allowing for critical commentary and sharing ideas related to their own work against the work of others.

Through our learning journey we aim to inspire students to take creative risks and demonstrate resilience, enhancing their ability to become autonomous learners and reflective practitioners. This critical thinking allows the students to investigate their ideas through visual language, whilst deepening their understanding and forming opinions of Art and Design throughout history and it’s role in today’s society.

KS4 Intent

The Design & Technology and Art Department at St Julie’s offers students a diverse range of creative subjects that include Art and Design, Graphic Design and Hospitality and Catering at key stage 4. Students will have experienced each of these areas at key stage 3 and will have developed foundation skills that, as a department, we have nurtured and built on through a series of creative and practical experiences and opportunities. Uptake of our subjects at GCSE will equip students with the knowledge and skills needed in order to help them make effective design choices, solve problems, communicate ideas effectively, question design and manufacturing decisions and ultimately become better decision makers. We aim to build on their knowledge of the impact of Design Technology, Hospitality and Catering and Art and Design on the historic and modern-day world. They will become more aware of career opportunities that exist in an ever-changing creative area and students will build upon their theoretical knowledge of design & technology and art subjects through the study of a variety of topics as set out below:

Graphics intent

Graphic design is a form of visual communication. It is the process by which visual information is given form and structure to communicate a message. Being a graphic designer is the profession of visual communication that combines images, words and ideas to convey information to an audience. It involves designing print or electronic forms of visual information for advertisement, publication or a website. At St Julie’s, graphic design should not be confused with art and design. It is distinct from this subject and should be treated as so. The Level 2 Technical Award in Graphic Design complements GCSE qualifications. It is aimed at students studying Key Stage 4 curriculum who are interested in any aspect of graphic design, including sourcing ideas and design. The qualification that we offer focuses on an applied study of the graphic design sector and you will gain a broad understanding and knowledge of working in the sector. This qualification has been designed to sit alongside the requirements of core GCSE subjects and is appropriate for students at St Julie’s who are motivated and challenged by learning through hands-on experiences and through content which is concrete and related directly to those experiences.

Hospitality and Catering intent

According to the British Hospitality Association, hospitality and catering is the fourth largest industry and accounts for 10% of the workforce in the UK. Since 2010, over 25% of all new jobs have been within the hospitality and catering sector with the majority of new roles falling within the 18-24 age group according to a report by People 1st. The course supports pupils who want to learn about the vocational sector and the potential it can offer them for their careers or further study. Pupils will learn about and understand the catering sector and industry. During their practical work they will develop and extend their practical skills and be encouraged to apply principles of food science, nutrition and healthy eating. Our curriculum will enable them to have a more in depth understanding and application of sources, sustainability and environmental issues related to food production and the industry. They will develop vital skills that enable them to feed themselves and others affordably and nutritiously, now and in later life.

Art intent

Art and Design encourages self-expression and creativity and can build confidence as well as a sense of individual identity. Creativity can also help with wellbeing. Studying art helps to improve analytical, communication and research skills, it enables pupils to develop their critical thinking and the ability to interpret the world around the. Engagement with the arts helps young people develop a sense of their own identity and value. This in turn develops personal responsibility within their school and wider community.  Arts and cultural learning encourages awareness, empathy and appreciation of difference and diversity and the views of others. The creative industries generate £84.1 billion to the United Kingdom (UK) economy each year and employ over 2.8 million people. Unlike many industries, the creative industries continue to grow each year. Learning through and about the arts enriches the experience of studying while at school as well as preparing students for life after school.

Students studying GCSE Art, Craft and Design will practically explore themes through a range of two-dimensional and/or three-dimensional processes and media. Emphasis will be placed on student’s recording of ideas, the practical application of skills and the development of relevant critical and contextual sources such as the work of artists, craftspeople and designers. Students will develop an understanding of the different purposes, intentions and functions of art, craft and design as appropriate to their own work. They will build upon the skills introduced at KS3 whilst being encouraged to work with more independence and purpose.  The KS4 curriculum is divided into two components.  Component one consists of students creating a portfolio of their own work based on a series of themes and is worth 60% of the final grade, component two is an externally set task worth 40% of the final grade. Throughout the course students will complete a variety of skills workshops to deepen their knowledge and understanding of different techniques and media.  These are designed to build technical skills and confidence whilst exposing students to different ways of working before embarking on more independent study for their personal responses and outcomes.  The workshops are complemented by exposure to the working practices of a variety of artists, designers, craftspeople or cultures.

 

Pupils will develop skills in recording experiences and ideas and in selecting and organising visual images.  This will be done through photography and drawing; importance will be placed on collecting and working from primary images.  This allows students to create innovative and personal work based on their own observations.   Observational drawing underpins each theme, pupils will revisit the formal elements taught at KS3 and use these to refine their skills of observation. Pupils will experiment with a variety of techniques and media and use these to explore and communicate their ideas visually in a skilful and effective way. They will be encouraged to review and modify their work as it progresses, making artistic decisions and judgements based on their own and others’ evaluations.  Ideas will be planned and developed to create outcomes that link with their work. Pupils will apply their knowledge and understanding to create personal responses to the theme.

 

Pupils will develop their analytical and evaluative skills through critically reflecting on their own work and that of other artists. Pupils are encouraged to source their own artists references; this ensures that students remain engaged with their work and create personal responses to themes. They will develop their use of specialist art vocabulary and understand the importance of supporting opinions with reasoning.  They will be able to articulate their thought process from initial ideas and observations, processes, experiments and discoveries through to the realisation of their ideas.  Pupils will be encouraged to reflect on their work, justify their creative decisions and learn from any challenges they faced. 

 

The Art department sets high expectations for the presentation of work, pupils are encouraged to take pride in their work and to present their work creatively. Art is a visual subject and as such we recognise the importance of modelling, we use practical demonstrations to introduce new techniques, addressing possibilities and misconceptions through discussion, experimentation and further demonstration.  Exemplar work and sharing of best practice is used to set high expectations, to build students confidence, and to inspire and challenge them.  Assessment is used to give personalised feedback to students that is specific to their work.  This encourages students to refine work and to reflect on it as it progresses. Peer and self-assessment are used to support the development of work whilst providing opportunities for discussion and reflection.

 

The externally set task provides students with the opportunity to demonstrate, through an extended creative response, their ability to draw together different areas of knowledge, skills and understanding in response to their selected starting point. The preparatory work must explicitly evidence students’ ability to draw together different areas of knowledge, skill and/or understanding from their starting point, through to their realisation of intentions in the 10 hours of supervised time. All pupils are expected to develop a strong body of independent work that fully supports the practical work undertaken in classroom-based sessions. All practical work is underpinned and supported by relevant and appropriate critical studies.

KS5 Intent

Art intent

A Level Art & Design can help students develop an extensive variety of both creative and technical skills. A strong artistic background can cultivate lots of different transferable skills including creativity, problem solving, organisation, time management and contextual interpretation. Students will learn communication skills, in particular how to express concepts and feelings, an ability to appreciate the visual world and to respond to it in a personal and creative way.  Students will develop a working knowledge of materials, practices and technology in one or more of the disciplines within art. They will develop the skills to interpret and convey ideas, thoughts and feelings using art, craft and design. Students will develop imaginative, experimental and creative powers as well as critical and analytical documenting skills. Students will interpret the work of other artists/designers/craftspeople/cultures developing their analytical and evaluative skills and use them to reflect upon their own work and development. They will develop their use of specialist vocabulary and the knowledge and understanding of the place of art, craft and design in history and in contemporary society. Students will be introduced to a variety of experiences, employing a range of media, processes and techniques. This will involve skills workshops that provide students with opportunity to explore and experiment with different techniques and media. Students will explore the role of arts and culture in the creative industries and the  education and career pathways available to them.  Students will develop a portfolio of work by building upon the knowledge, understanding and skills gained with greater depth of study. An extended written element will complement this project in which students choose an idea to investigate, analyse and respond to. Students will complete an externally set assignment, creating a  portfolio of supporting studies/preparatory work based upon one of the externally set stimulus.  Responses take the form of integrated practical and critical preparatory work which informs and relates to a 15 hour period of sustained focus in which the student brings their work to a conclusion under supervised conditions.

Health and Social Care intent

An introduction to the health and social care sector through applied learning. This supports progression to higher education. This course includes elements of both vocational and general qualifications. The content includes the knowledge, understanding, skills and attributes required in the Health and Social care sector. BTEC Nationals required applied learning that brings together knowledge and understanding (the cognitive domain) with practical and technical skills (the psychomotor domain). This is achieved through learners performing vocational tasks that encourage the development of appropriate vocational behaviours (the affective domain) and transferable skills. Transferable skills are those such as communication, teamwork, research and analysis, which are valued in both higher education and the workplace. This approach provides rigour and balance and promotes the ability to apply learning immediately in new contexts.
