Science: Our Intent for the subject.
“What I love about science is that as you learn, you don’t really get answers. You just get better questions.” – John Green
At Walter Evans CE Primary and Nursery School, we intend to equip children with the scientific knowledge and skills required for their transition to KS3. Fostering positive attitudes is central to our ethos and therefore, our science education strives to enrich children’s curiosity, wonder and questioning, forming connections between children’s own experiences and their knowledge and care for our local and global communities. By connecting science to children’s interests through our topic-based approach and child-initiated enquiries, the aspiration is that teachers will promote a life-long learning journey for the children that they teach.

How it fits within our school vision.
Our school vision is rooted in the Christian faith. As a proud Church of England school, our vision is underpinned by the Church of England’s vision for education. This vision identifies four interlinking aims for all our pupils and, at its heart, lies LOVE (Luke 10:27).
It is this LOVE for God, for our neighbours and ourselves, that forms our Christian foundation to underpin all that we do.
At Walter Evans we believe in a broad and balanced curriculum where all subjects are valued. A broad and balanced curriculum will equip our children with a breadth of knowledge and skills in all areas of the curriculum. We aim for our pupils to ‘Persevere, be curious and inspired through their learning’.
