Subject Vision

Our intention when planning and delivering the Science National Curriculum is to foster and develop pupils’ curiosity, help them to fulfil their potential and prepare them for their future education and a life after education. We equip pupils with the ability to ask and answer scientific questions about the world around. We provide a sequenced curriculum that builds on previous scientific knowledge and provides rich opportunities for pupils to build on their skills and knowledge through scientific enquiry.

We achieve all this through the following:

  • Aspiring lessons that stretch all pupils, using scaffolding for those that need it, so all pupils can achieve high levels of retained knowledge.
  • Developing pupils’ enjoyment and interest in science through an opportunity and experience rich curriculum using practical activities where ever possible.
  • Promoting an appreciation of science’s contribution to all aspects of everyday life through a curriculum that it is relevant to the pupils.
