Our aim in Science is to enable pupils to understand, enjoy and marvel at the world around them, through enquiry-based lessons that challenge their thinking. We aim to encourage our pupils to develop a positive and practical approach to science. We also seek to develop key scientific skills, combine knowledge with practical application and establish cross-curricular links, where appropriate. We build understanding of the ‘Big Ideas’ in science that are relevant to pupils’ lives during and beyond school.
