The Science Curriculum

At Shipley CE Primary School, we provide all children with scientific knowledge and understanding of the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. We work hard to ensure our children have access to a rich and varied scientific curriculum that both meets their needs but also seeks to challenge them. Our belief is that all pupils should be taught the skills of working scientifically and the essential aspects of the knowledge and use of science comes through this work. All this while widening our children’s horizons and equipping them with the skills and the knowledge required to understand the huge influence that science has, both today and for the future.
