At Potter's Gate and St Andrew's schools, we believe that every child is a scientist. We aspire to take our children's natural curiosity about the world around them and develop their questions into scientific discoveries. Our curriculum opens their eyes to the science they find in their immediate environment, including our school pond, Space to Grow, forest school, Bishop's Meadow and Farnham Park. They can then apply this knowledge and understanding to the wider world and beyond.
We support our children to be aware of the environmental changes happening in the world and how they can make a positive difference as a school community. Through our Eco Council and Generation Restoration projects, we provide opportunities for the children to have a practical impact on taking care of our world.
During their time in our schools, the children will develop their scientific skills alongside a love and enjoyment of science. We participate in British Science Week annually to embrace opportunities to enhance and develop our scientific curriculum through trips, visitors and whole school science events.
Children build on their science skills every year through their learning of different scientific concepts and are encouraged to approach science topics with creativity and innovation.
