Our aspiration is to ensure that children are engaged, inspired and challenged throughout each topic and therefore enabled to continue to develop and secure their skill base.
As your child moves through Pinehurst Primary he/she will develop skills throughout their school life, please click on the link below which details how your child's skills will build throughout Pinehurst Primary.
We also have a schools food advisor/cookery specialist who visits us on a weekly basis for a full day, on a class rotation basis, teaching DT food skills and promoting healthy eating - as well as completing a DT food project in each year group, there are also cross-curricular food projects.
