To support implementation of the new programmes of study, 6 interrelated principles have been agreed by the National Curriculum Expert Group for D&T. They describe the features of a genuine DéT experience from the pupils’ perspective and can be applied to all material areas and aspects of the subject. Each principle should be evident to a greater or lesser degree in each project that pupils undertake. The principles provide a helpful starting point for clarifying and securing the distinctive nature of DéT in the classroom. The new Curriculum requirements are consistent with the six principles.
