The Curriculum & Beyond

Our School Curriculum 

Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do and underpin our teaching and learning. We know that children learn best when they are offered exciting, engaging and immersive opportunities and this is fostered through our approach. We believe that learning should be fun, interactive and focused on children's own personal needs. We are committed to raising standards and providing the best education for every pupil in our school.

We are committed to developing the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of each child enabling them to thrive and equipping them with the skills to become positive, thoughtful and caring citizens in school and in the wider world. 

We use a thematic topic based approach across the school  as a vehicle to teach all areas of the curriculum and make links between subjects where we can.  Our curriculum will enable the children to share ideas, express their opinions and apply knowledge and skills learned in a wide range of meaningful contexts. It offers opportunities for all children to investigate, question, debate and challenge. We want all our children to flourish and to be the very best they can be.

Science Curriculum Intent



Science Rolling Programme

KS1 Progression in Science

KS2 Progression in Science

Scientific Enquiry Progression



The impact and measure of science is to ensure children not only acquire the appropriate age related knowledge linked to the science curriculum, but also skills which equip them to progress from their starting points, and within their everyday lives.

All children will have:

  • A wider variety of skills linked to both scientific knowledge and understanding, and scientific enquiry/investigative skills.
  • A richer vocabulary which will enable to articulate their understanding of taught concepts.
  • High aspirations, which will see them through to further study, work and a successful adult life.








Early Years Foundation Stage 

Key Stage 1

Years 3 and 4

Years 5 and 6



SCARF (safety, caring, achievement, resilience and friendship) makes a defference because it gives us a whole-school approach to improving children’s wellbeing and progress, based on the core values of safety, caring, achievement, resilience and friendship, and is delivered with the knowledge that improving children’s health and wellbeing improves the children's academic attainment.
