Science encourages children to ask questions and explore and understand the world around them, in addition to developing life-long problem-solving skills. It is through the implementation of our science curriculum that we hope to encourage and achieve the following aims for our pupils:   

* Develop enquiring minds. 
* Develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding of their world, through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. 
* Develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help answer scientific questions about the world. 
* Ensure pupils are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, for both today and the future.  
* Evaluate evidence and present conclusions clearly and accurately. 
* Work carefully and safely. 

We are members of Science Oxford and actively seek out opportunities for our children to develop their science capital in school.
