At Calverley CE School we believe that a high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. We will encourage children to care about and love their learning in Science.

We will do this by:

  • Teaching science through practical sessions and investigation
  • Encouraging pupils to think both scientifically and creatively
  • Building curiosity, wonder and humour to engage children in their science learning
  • Taking advantage of the outdoor environment to learn science in context
  • Providing teaching of science that is well planned and ensure that pupils of all abilities make progress
  • Assessing pupils based on what they demonstrate in lessons as well as tests
