Science

‘Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity and is the torch which illuminates the world.’ Louis Pasteur

We believe that a high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all learners should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts and through our carefully planned curriculum progression, learners are encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena and awe and wonder about the world around them. Learners are encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.
