Science

Subject Intent

Science is an essential part of the curriculum as it enables young people to develop their understanding of scientific concepts and make sense of the world around them. It develops transferable skills including problem-solving, reasoning and enquiry.

The intent of our science curriculum is to create opportunities to ensure that every child has a positive experience of science throughout their primary school education. We must do this by inspiring children, encouraging them to be inquisitive about the world, nurturing their innate curiosity and enabling them to develop a range of skills that are useful across their learning. Children are naturally inquisitive and science should nurture this and allow them to ask questions independently and develop the skills they need to answer those questions. 

Our science curriculum is also designed to motivate, inspire and engage all children in science lessons but to be aware of, and take responsibility for, addressing gender stereotyping in science lessons; encouraging girls to want to explore careers in science and STEM subjects.
