Aims of Science:
"Our aim is to ensure that every pupil is safe, engaged,
makes outstanding progress and grows to have a spiritual, moral and
ethical view of the world." (Ms. S. Teare, Faculty
The study of science fires pupils' curiosity about phenomena in
the world around them and offers opportunities to find
explanations. It engages learners at many levels, linking
direct practical experience with scientific ideas.
Experimentation and modelling are used to develop and evaluate
explanations, encouraging critical and creative thought.
Pupils learn how knowledge and understanding in science are rooted
in evidence. They discover how scientific ideas contribute to
technological change - affecting industry, business and medicine
and improving quality of life. They trace the development of
science worldwide and recognise its cultural significance.
They learn to question and discuss issues that may affect their own
lives, the directions of societies and the future of the world.
