At Spring Vale Primary School we value Science because it makes an increasingly important contribution of all aspects of life. All children are naturally curious about their environment and Science makes an invaluable contribution to their knowledge and understanding of the world. Science is a body of knowledge built up through experimental testing of ideas. Science is also methodology, a practical way of finding reliable answers to questions we may ask about the world around us. Science in our school is about developing children’s ideas and ways of working that enable them to make sense of the world in which they live through investigation, as well as using and applying process skills.
We believe that a broad and balanced science education is the entitlement of all children, regardless of ethnic origin, gender, class, aptitude or disability.
