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 think that:

  • Science is best taught through practical sessions and investigation
  • Pupils should be encouraged to think both scientifically and creatively
  • Curiosity, wonder and humour are emotions that build engagement in science
  • Science should take advantage of the outdoor environment to learn science in context
  • The teaching of science should be rigorous and ensure that pupils of all abilities make progress
  • Assessment should be based on what pupils demonstrate in lessons as well as tests
