What are the aims of our Science curriculum?

At Tottington Primary School we are passionate about promoting high standards of science. Through combining the Early Years and National Curriculum with our TPS core values, our ambitious Science curriculum equips all our children with the necessary skills needed.


At TPS, we aim to develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. We develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help children to answer scientific questions about the world around them. We strive to ensure our pupils are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future. We believe children should develop enquiring minds and the ability to question. This will build on their natural curiosity and enable them to understand and care for the world in which they live. Our pupils are provided with an environment where they can work in an investigative way and can communicate their findings in a variety of ways.


Through our well-planned, and sequenced Science curriculum our children acquire the vital knowledge and skills required for the next stage of their learning journey and on into adulthood. This enables the children of Tottington Primary School to become successful, active and positive members of their local community and wider world.
