Our curriculum leader for Science is Mrs Sharpe.
Our Science Policy follows the National Curriculum 2014 guidelines and aims to ensure that all pupils:
• Develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of Biology, Chemistry, and Physics;
• Develop an understanding of the nature, process, and methods of Science through different types of science inquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them;
• Are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and in the future.
All children will develop inquisitive minds and demonstrate a need to question and think critically. Our approach to science teaching allows for a hands-on, thought-provoking curriculum, through different teaching strategies, which will transfer and be used throughout the whole curriculum.
In 2019 we were awarded the Primary Science Quality Mark. PSQM transforms primary schools and communities – growing confident leaders and teachers of science, building children’s attainment and aspiration in science, and shaping the culture of a primary school into a place where every child, teacher and family thinks ‘science is for them’.
