Growing Enquiring Learners to Live in God’s World
At St Andrew’s CE Primary School, our science curriculum is underpinned by our school principles: Wisdom, Grace and Hope, which are rooted in the Bible. Our aim is to grow confident and respectful learners to live happily in God’s world, underpinned by a strong focus on emotional health and wellbeing.
GROWING: It is our ambition that every St Andrew’s pupil is able to develop a deep understanding of their place in the world; starting with their role at school, within the local community and beyond. We strive to do this by delivering a high quality science curriculum which enables all children to learn about how to be enquiring, ask scientific questions and then investigate ways of answering them. Our science sessions are taught within a nurturing and supportive environment which enables our learners to all receive the appropriate level of support they need in order to achieve personal success and development. The science curriculum is
CONFIDENT AND RESPECTFUL LEARNERS: Throughout the school day we encourage our children to make positive choices and to be reflective and pro-active in all they do. Through their work in PE and Science the children also learn the importance of being healthy and active.
TO LIVE IN: We want to provide all children with the potential to thrive, not just survive in God’s world, making positive contributions to their immediate, local and global community. Our Science curriculum successfully supports this by providing all learners with opportunities to learn life skills including conducting research, investigating and making observations.
GOD’S WORLD: Through our continuously immersive curriculum, we aim to promote positive mental health and wellbeing for all pupils who are ready to learn. Where we develop learners that feel inspired and motivated to reach their full potential in God’s world, successfully putting into practise key life scientific skills.
