Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humainty and is the torch which illuminates the world - Louis Paseur

We aim to deliver an engaging and high quality Science education to help children gain an understanding of Science today and the future, developing a range of transferable skills through scientific enquiry.

Our intention is to ensure pupils are encouraged to develop a sense of excitement, passion and curiosity in Science when undertaking scientific investigations, in order to understand how science can be used to explain what is happening, make predictions and analyse causes.

 In our school, we intend for all children to be discovery learners and curious about the world. To promote this, every year group starts their learning off with a ‘discovery question’ these questions are open ended to promote discussion and to allow children to make links with new and previous knowledge. We strive to ensure our pupils know more and remember more. Teachers carry out 'Flashbacks' to recap prior learning as a tool to help pupils acheive this.
