Gaining a deeper understanding of the world around us through scientific enquiry.
We follow the National Curriculum for Science and use both the Kent scheme of work and Science Bug as a starting point for our planning across the school. We aim to develop both scientific knowledge and pupil's ability to work scientifically through an emphasis on investigative work during Science lessons. The school takes part in activities relating to British Science Week each year and enters national competitions, which help to give context to the work carried out in class. We maintain links with the warden of our local nature reserve and arrange visits where children are able to explore the natural world on their doorstep.
