Science

Intent 

At Sutton in Craven School, our science curriculum is designed to foster curiosity, challenge and community. Our intent is to give every child a broad and balanced Science curriculum which enables them to confidently explore and discover what is around them, so that they have a deeper understanding of the world we live in. We want our children to be excited about science and to have a lifelong love of learning. Our lessons are coherently planned and sequenced with the child and their interests at the heart of what we do. Our aim is to secure and extend our children’s scientific knowledge so that they understand how science plays a key part in their daily lives and we encourage them to make links and connections with the wider world, outside of Sutton. We challenge children and spark curiosity through investigation and provide our children with the tools, resources and vocabulary needed to answer those big questions through scientific inquiry. We give every child the opportunity to take part in annual whole school science events and work in partnership with other local schools to raise the profile of science within our community. By the time our children leave our school, we want them to be equipped with the knowledge and skills they require in order for them to succeed in future opportunities, responsibilities and experiences.
