Statement of Intent for Science at Ss. Peter and Paul's school
At Ss. Peter and Paul’s Catholic primary school it is our intent that children develop enquiring minds through the subject of Science. They will secure good knowledge and understanding of the specific disciplines of physics, chemistry and biology. Through independent hands-on learning children will grow in confidence to ask and answer open-ended questions to find things out for themselves through scientific enquiry where they are actively involved in their own learning. We want children to be fully equipped not only for the next stage in their education but in their future careers in an ever-changing Scientific and technological world.
