We aim to instil a lifelong love of science within our children so that they will be inquisitive and will explore and question the world around them.

Science constantly changes our lives and is vital to the world’s future that we are growing and nurturing scientists through our curriculum. We work hard to provide a rich, varied, progressive curriculum which focuses on both scientific knowledge and skills. Children will be taught to work scientifically and to explain ideas using scientific vocabulary.

We aim to develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. We provide our children with wider opportunities in science with educational visits and make links to other subjects. Our curriculum prioritises opportunities for scientific enquiry with children being taught to work scientifically alongside developing their scientific knowledge.

The national curriculum for science aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics
  • develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them
  • are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
