Subject Vision Statement


Our aims in teaching science are that all children will:


  • retain and develop their natural sense of curiosity about the world around them


  • develop a set of attitudes which will promote scientific ways of thinking, including open-endedness, perseverance, objectivity and a recognition of the importance of teamwork


  • come to understand the nature of "scientific method" involving: meticulous observation, the making and testing of hypotheses, the design of fair and controlled experiments, the drawing of meaningful conclusions through critical reasoning and the evaluation of evidence


  • become effective communicators of scientific ideas, facts and data


  • begin to build up a body of scientific knowledge and understanding which will serve as a foundation for future enquiry.

Primary Science Quality Mark

We are delighted to have been awarded the Primary Science Quality Mark - Outreach. This is a reflection of our excellent science curriculum but also of how the school supports other schools. Please see our full portfolio submission and our wonderful feedback below. PSQM logo 

Laudato Si'

As part of the school's Catholic ethos, we apply our science knowledge to look after our world in response to Pope Francis' encyclical letter Laudato Si'.
