Science Statement of Intent 

In Science, we aim to encourage all children to explore, enquire and investigate, confidently, to gain a deeper understanding of the world God created. It is our intention that children will engage in active science lessons using scientific equipment, making accurate measurements, conducting experiments, building arguments and explaining concepts confidently and that they ask questions and be curious about their surroundings. We believe science encompasses the acquisition of knowledge, concepts, skills and positive attitudes. We aim to develop a real passion and love for Science in order that our children will transition to High School prepared for learning in KS3 and for later life with a love for Scientific enquiry and a real awareness of the world around them and the contribution that Science makes in our society. Science teaching at St Peter’s will also fully support the school ethos as we aim to inspire awe and wonder of God’s created world within all the children in our care.
