At Saint Joseph’s, the Borough, we intend that all pupils develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Pupils develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of Science through different types of scientific enquiry that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them. They are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of Science, today and for the future. At Saint Joseph’s, we encourage children to be inquisitive throughout their time at the school and beyond. The Science curriculum fosters a healthy curiosity in children about our universe and promotes respect for living and non-living things. We believe Science encompasses the acquisition of knowledge, concepts, skills and positive attitudes about the world we inhabit. Throughout the programmes of study, the children will acquire and develop the key knowledge that has been identified within each unit and across each year group, as well as the application of scientific skills.
