Our Science Policy follows The National Curriculum 2014 for Science Guidelines and aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of Biology, Chemistry and Physics;
  • develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of Science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them;
  • are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of Science, today and for the future.


At Weston, we follow the Hamilton Trust planning for all the single age classes and supplement this with the Scholastic planning for the mixed age classes to ensure that the children gain access to all areas of the Science curriculum. Although we focus on the Science objectives discretely, whenever possible we do link to the main topic being taught each term. We place a great emphasis on Scientific Enquiry and hope the children foster an interest in Science beyond the classroom.
