Science

A high-quality Science education provides a foundation for understanding the world, the opportunity for pupils to pose their own questions, make scientific links and a have sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject. At Apley, we believe that Science is an interconnected subject where pupils can make links and connections across different scientific topics and through other subjects like Technology, Maths and the Arts.

Our Science curriculum focuses on giving the children opportunities to overlearn throughout the key stages and ensures that they develop their scientific enquiry skills and deepen their scientific knowledge. Within our planning, we provide a mastery curriculum that allows all children opportunities to apply their scientific enquiry skills and develop their scientific knowledge. Pupils who grasp concepts rapidly should be challenged by being offered rich and sophisticated scenarios or investigations before any acceleration through new content. Those who are not sufficiently fluent with earlier material should consolidate their understanding through additional support and practice.

Our Science Subject Leader is Miss Gilbert.
