A high quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Through building up a body of key fundamental 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. We encourage our children to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave and analyse cause.
Our school bases the core work in science around the National Curriculum which aims to ensure that all pupils:
- develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through 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 answer scientific questions about the world around them
- are equipped with scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
We teach a range of knowledge, skills and understanding throughout school:
Our science curriculum is further enhanced by visits, visitors and participation in relevant events which occur throughout the local authority.
