Science Vision Statement
Science allows our children to explore the world around them through experimenting and investigating different phenomenon. Our aim is to develop our children’s fascination with the world and enhance their aspirations for the future. We do this by:
- developing their scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics
- developing understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help our children to answer scientific questions about the world around them
- ensuring our children are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
Our science curriculum has investigating and experimenting at the heart of our science lessons so that our children can investigate and see themselves as scientists. As they progress through school, children develop their working scientifically skills so that they question, measure, report and evaluate their findings to a more complex level.
Our curriculum ensures children study a breadth of topics so that they see and think about how science impacts on themselves and the diverse world around them. As they progress through school, we aim to show children how science is a fundamental part of their lives, how it will play an important role in their future and what role they can play by raising their aspirations.
The golden thread throughout our whole curriculum is the intent to improve health, raise aspirations and promote diversity.
