At Smallwood, we believe that a high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.
Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science.
We believe that through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, pupils will recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They will also understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes. But most of all, we learn to love science as science is life!
