Our science curriculum engages and enthuses children by providing relevant, first-hand experiences of scientific phenomena in the everyday world.
Our curriculum helps children build secure knowledge and terminology for each area of study. Excellent teaching ensures this is consolidated and extended during children’s time at our school.
We encourage children to develop and maintain an inquisitive mind, questioning what they see, hear and feel. Children’s ideas are valued and respected. Teachers’ detailed yet flexible planning ensures that children’s natural curiosity is captured to enable them to extend their scientific understanding.

As they progress through the Programme of Study, teachers guide children to plan, lead and reflect on scientific investigations, developing independent thought and learning
