Curriculum Intent Statement Science
Science provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.
At St Keverne School, we recognise the importance of Science in every aspect of daily life and in our diverse and ever-changing world. We encourage our pupils’ natural curiosity; teach knowledge, conceptual understanding, enquiry and working scientifically skills to develop their understanding of, and to illuminate the world around them and beyond.
We aim to exemplify our REAL curriculum drivers through our science curriculum by giving our pupils the opportunity to:
Demonstrate their resilience & confidence in recognising the power of rational explanation.
Have expectations that they are proud of and which develop their sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena.
Develop their ambition so that they are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
Use accurate and purposeful, carefully selected scientific language.
