Our science curriculum helps pupils develop scientific ideas and an understanding about the biological and physical aspects of the world and the processes through which they develop.
Science contributes significantly to our pupils' enjoyment and understanding of the world and their place within it. It is made accessible to all pupils through a focus on practical work, first hand experience and special events designed to inspire and engage learners.
Teaching key skills like observations, predictions and evaluation of first hand observations are of equal importance to knowledge and understanding. Science is taught either as a stand alone subject or incorporated into our Connected Curriculum where applicable. This ensures a holistic approach in the acquisition of scientific skills and knowledge.
Systematic enquiry, analysis of problems, formation of ideas, testing and modification are encouraged through whole class, group or individual investigations and project work, designed to arouse pupils' natural curiosity.
