Science Policy

Whole School Science Overview

Our science curriculum is designed with the intent that each child at Aston All Saints will become competent scientific thinkers and investigators who will encounter awe and wonder through first-hand scientific investigative experiences and approaches, which activate learning for all children. We place great emphasis on providing children with a high-quality science education that offers the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.

Our curriculum design for Science promotes specific competences including knowledge, enquiry and the working scientifically based skills. We deliver a carefully planned sequential curriculum that ensures all our children have the opportunity to think scientifically and enhance their life choices.
