Science is changing our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all students should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes, and uses of science. They should be helped to appreciate the achievements of science in showing how the complex and diverse phenomena of the natural world can be described in terms of a few key ideas relating to the sciences which are inter-linked, and which are of universal application.
In Science we aim to create a learning environment which presents Science as an intrinsic part of the world we live in. Foster the notion that science is a way of thinking much more than a body of knowledge. Demonstrate that the ability to think scientifically leads to success in life far beyond the science classroom.
We will teach pupils to question the world around them, to aid them in garnering a deeper understanding of the world and how science interlinks across the whole school curriculum. We will provide opportunities for pupils to broaden their scientific language and develop problem solving skills. This enables them to articulate the constantly evolving scientific concepts of the world in which they live.
We will reinforce the notion that belief in God and the gospel teaching of Jesus Christ is compatible with Science and the scientific process. We will provide opportunities for pupils to realise that we have a God given responsibility to this planet and to care for it as our common home.
We aim to develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry, and physics.
