Science is a core part of the curriculum. In science we aim to stimulate and excite pupils’ curiosity about phenomena and events in the world around them.

We want children to develop a knowledge about scientific principles, laws and concepts and to gain experience of scientific skills and activities.

Working scientifically is an essential component of the curriculum; skills of enquiry are developed through regular research, observations, investigations and outdoor learning.

Most importantly science is fun which is further enhanced through visits and special events.
