At Staplegrove Church School, we want our children to develop a love of science and an enthusiasm for finding out about the world. We want children to leave our school, not only with a secure base of scientific knowledge, but also being inspired to be the scientists of the future.

Our Science curriculum aims to prepare children for their experiences of the wider world. Therefore, we strive to ensure the lessons we deliver, cover the three aims of the Science National Curriculum so that pupils understand the science and have the skills to engage with the knowledge and recognise where it fits in the wider world. We believe in the curious child and encourage our children to ponder, ask questions and find out answers to big questions for themselves, reflecting on that which they have discovered. The knowledge they acquire is deepened through the use of essential scientific enquiry skills and working scientifically is a core feature of our science curriculum.

Children tackle problems, forming questions, generating and testing ideas and designs and deciding how to seek solutions.  They gather and make sense of evidence, test out hypotheses and evaluate processes and outcomes.  They learn the possibilities of science, design and technology, inspiring them to become the scientists, engineers, designers and innovators of the future and how to be informed citizens responsive to the needs of others and the world in which they live.
