Curriculum Intent

Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity. 

At Purley C of E Primary School we aim to encourage our children to be curious about the world around them and to teach them scientific knowledge alongside opportunities to develop their enquiry skills. We want them to enjoy science! 

At all stages, pupils carry out different types of tests, use scientific equipment, gather data and begin to interpret their findings using key scientific vocabulary. They learn about key scientists and their role in shaping our world today. All of this enables children to be equipped with the scientific skills and knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future. 

In the Foundation Stage children are encouraged to explore scientific content through understanding the world, whilst Key stages One and Two follow the National Curriculum.
