“Science is amazing at our school because we get to do lots of exciting experiments and we learn new and  interesting facts.”

Nurture

 We provide a safe environment and a practical, first-hand experience based curriculum which all children can access regardless of their level of need or academic ability.  Our curriculum is planned to inspire a natural curiosity about the world around us through engaging first-hand experiences, and provide powerful knowledge which broaden the children’s horizons, develops independence, resilience and inspires originality of thought when planning and conducting their own investigations.

Inspire

We strive to inspire the children to become the scientists of the future.  The children have the opportunity to learn about famous scientists and how they have influenced scientific theories today.  The children are often immersed into inspirational environments for example, Catalyst Science Museum and Eureka.  In Key Stage Two, the children attend St Edmund Arrowsmith to participate in subject specialist led sessions in order to ensure that the children are fully aware of the possibilities available to them.

Succeed

We pre-assess our children before every topic using the Teaching Backwards approach.  We also use a ‘Knoledge Cloud’ for each child to determine what they already know and what they have learnt by the end of the topic.  We assess our children on a half termly basis using Target Tracker, this enables us to form aspirational targets to challenge all children as well as identifying those children that need additional support.  Ultimately, we want to give our children the opportunity to  become successful scientists of the future!
