Science at St Lewis' 

At St Lewis', we believe that Science provides the opportunity for children to develop as curious thinkers, fascinated by the world around them, ready to face future challenges and opportunities. Our approach is guided by a set of scientific principles which are regularly reviewed to ensure Science teaching remains great. 

Science is everywhere in today’s world as part of our daily lives, from cooking and gardening, to recycling and comprehending the daily weather report, to reading a map and using a computer. Advances in technology and science are transforming our world at an incredible pace.  Being “science literate” is no longer just an advantage but an absolute necessity in life. We cannot escape from the significance of science in our world. We know that by teaching children how to use the five types of scientific enquiry we are preparing them to find out more about the world and how it works.

At St Lewis', our children follow a curriculum support by Developing Experts which includes..

  • Practical , hands on investigation and enquiry
  • Excitement, collaboration, fun, inspiration and enthusiasm
  • Giving children independence to question, explore and make discoveries
  • Passionate teachers with superior subject knowledge
  • We ensure that our teachers have a solid knowledge and understanding of the science they teach. We also equip them with the pedagogical knowledge of how to teach science well. This is closely monitored so that we know our curriculum is benefiting from expert knowledge from bodies like the National STEM centre,
  • High quality outdoor scientific experiences when possible
  • Key links to employment and inspirational figures as role models for future scientists
