Primary Self-Review Framework Taster

First released 2016

The D&T Self-Review Framework (SRF) is a tool designed to help schools determine the quality and effectiveness of all aspects of their Design and Technology provision in school. It provides a comprehensive structure to guide subject leaders when they are monitoring and evaluating the subject in EYFS, KS1 and KS2.

This shortened ‘taster’ version of the Framework is available as a free PDF download. It provides a number of criteria or ‘descriptors’ to enable a rigorous evaluation of each aspect of D&T provision, with helpful advice on resources that could be used to improve practice, where required.

The full Framework is available at It is freely available to Primary School members of the Association and is more detailed and interactive, enabling subject leaders to upload evidence that supports self-review, with the possibility of using this to apply for the Design and Technology Association’s ‘D&T Mark’. This is a new quality mark awarded to primary schools and secondary departments that demonstrate excellence in Design and Technology provision.

The SRF will help schools to:

  • Fully evaluate their current provision
  • Efficiently store and manage evidence
  • Plan to fully address the National Curriculum programmes of study for D&T and the EYFS Framework
  • Improve curriculum planning, teaching and learning, leadership and capacity, and resources and safety
  • Effectively address Ofsted’s focus on self-evaluation (School Inspection Handbook, Ofsted, 2015)
  • Ensure that the contribution that D&T makes to a broad and balanced curriculum is recognised within the school community

The D&T Association will recognise schools who achieve the D&T Mark as ‘Centres of Excellence’. We will work with these schools to develop resources, run CPD/branch meetings and as a location for visits with both UK and international visitors, government officials and industry.
