  • Prepare our children for life in an increasingly scientific and technological world.
  • Build on our children’s natural curiosity and develop a scientific approach to problems.
  • Develop our children's enjoyment and interest in science by providing opportunities that engage all children in relevant, first-hand experiences.
  • Foster, concern about, and active care for, our environment. 
  • Encourage our children to investigate, question and discuss to acquire scientific knowledge, understanding, and skill.
  • Teach scientific vocabulary and develop our children's understanding of key scientific concepts.
  • Enable our children to make links between science and other subjects.



  • We use The Plymouth Scheme for our Science planning, this allows teachers to see the child's scientific learning journey from EYFS through to year 6 as well as ensuring all aspects of both the National Curriculum and EYFS 'Understanding the World' is covered.
  •  We plan by having a question for learning to promote our children's curiosity.
  • We ensure that our children are able to recall and retrieve prior learning through the use of 'entry tickets' at the start of lessons.
  • We trust our teaching staff to use their own extensive knowledge of the science curriculum and creativity where they see fit to adapt or build upon lessons from The Plymouth Scheme - ensuring learning is suited to their individual children and classes.
  • We plan opportunities for outdoor learning using our extensive forest school areas.
  • We offer lots of exciting experiences for our children, from visitors who work in science to come into lessons to trips to London's Science Museum. 



Our children will

  • demonstrate a love of science.
  •  have a greater love for the environment and help care for it.
  • retain knowledge that is pertinent to Science with a real life context.
  • question ideas and reflect on knowledge.
  • articulate their understanding of scientific concepts and be able to reason scientifically using rich language linked to science.
  • demonstrate a high love of mathematical skills through their work, organising, recording and interpreting results.
  • achieve age related expectations in Science at the end of their cohort year.
