Our Pupils’ perspective

As Scientists, we find out answers to things we don’t know by carrying out experiments. It is ok to get things wrong when we are testing.


Subject Leader

Mrs Patel is fascinated with the world around us, so much so that she is our Science Lead. She enjoys finding out how things work, why things happen and predicting what will happen next because of scientific discoveries and research. Outside of school, Mrs Patel enjoys exploring the natural world around us whilst on walks and visits with friends and family.


Subject Intent

As scientists within our school, we aim to open  young minds by delivering stimulating  lessons that ignite the children’s curiosity about our ever-changing world. We foster a culture where excellence is encouraged by promoting hands-on experiments and investigations. Recognising the unique talents of each child, we actively encourage the children  to make connections with their prior knowledge and experiences, nurturing their individual strengths. Collaboration and mutual respect are the foundations  of our approach, as we strive to develop  healthy relationships and embody the principles of our school's scripture through our ‘actions and true caring’.


The Science curriculum -

  • will develop the children’s knowledge and understanding through the the three strands of biology, chemistry and physics;

  • will develop an understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them;

  • will ensure children are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and in the future;

  • prepares pupils for their future learning by ensuring all necessary knowledge and skills are taught in preparation for the following learning phase, and by developing the key cognitive skills of independence, creativity, problem solving, analysis and evaluation;
