Statement of intent:

 

At St Mary’s we aim to provide a high quality science curriculum which provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and it is vital to the world’s future prosperity. All pupils should be taught essential scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding which can be demonstrated in written and verbal explanation, solving challenging problems and reporting scientific findings. We develop the ability for pupils to think independently and ask questions about working scientifically and the knowledge and skills it brings. Pupils will gain confidence and competence in the full range of practical skills, planning and carrying out scientific investigations. We endeavour to create a passion for science and its application in past, present and future technologies.
