Statement of Intent

To provide children with a high-quality Science Curriculum which will inspire children, and promote a love of Science and scientific learning, not only in the primary years, but also through high school and beyond to further and higher education, and into the world of work. Children will be well-versed in Scientific themes, skills, approaches, knowledge and vocabulary linked to a wide range of physical, biological and chemical themes. In addition, links are made between subjects (such as Science, PE and Life Skills – The Human Body, Healthy Living and exercise) during the school year. This approach helps to deepen children’s understanding in all subjects.

Thinking creatively, pupils will be encouraged to explore, investigate and analyse using scientific enquiry skills. Pupils will develop knowledge and understanding of key scientist and important scientific discoveries over the course of history; considering how these have impacted on our understanding of the world around us.
