At St Joseph’s, we recognise the fundamental role that a high quality scientific education plays in pupils’ understanding and interpretation of the world around them. Science has, and will continue to change the world therefore it is essential that we equip our children with a thorough understanding of key scientific knowledge and understanding, methods and processes. Through our science curriculum, we strive to inspire a sense of awe, excitement and curiosity in the natural world and natural phenomena within all of our pupils.
We aspire to provide all of our pupils with the skills required to explain what they observe around them, predict the future and to analyse cause and effect in the natural world. We encourage all of our pupils to evaluate their scientific learning in light of the school’s core Catholic values and to recognise their roles as stewards of God’s world.
