Our vision is to enable children to develop an inquisitive, scientific mind throughout their time in school and beyond. Our science curriculum fosters a healthy curiosity in children about the universe and world around them, promoting a respect for the living and non-living. This encompasses the acquisition of knowledge, concepts, skills and positive attitudes to learning, in order to equip them for life now and in the future, within their own community and the wider world.
The children develop their ability to work scientifically, including the skills of: enquiry, testing, predicting, gathering evidence, using equipment, observation, forming opinions, explaining concepts and drawing conclusions. These skills help them to understand the world around them with a greater degree of accuracy and confidence, finding science in everything around them.
Our learning in science is accessible and engaging for all, and shows progression across the year groups and key stages. Through this, we want to motivate, inspire and raise standards across the curriculum. Children are able to see how their learning is built upon as they go throughout the school, developing scientific skills, attitudes and knowledge so that they are ready for the next stage of their education and to foster a life-long interest and enthusiasm for Science.
