A high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, pupils should be encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They should be encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.
Our Science Curriculum is designed to support the Programme of Study set out in the National Curriculum and also to build upon children’s curiosity and enthusiasm.
We aim to ensure pupils:
We promote science in school not only through discrete lessons but links to real-life events and experiences.
We also acknowledge progress and effort in science with a monthly Scientist award presented in assembly.
