‘A good Science education is not only vital preparation for scientific literacy later in life; it is a portal to a world of possibilities.

In a rapidly changing world, where new developments in Science occur daily, we approach the teaching of Science as a process of acquiring knowledge rather than teaching a body of knowledge.  Developing scientific knowledge helps children to understand how the world works. Science develops through a process of hypotheses and experimentation’

At Rivington Foundation Primary School we deliver a high-quality science education which provides the foundations for understanding the world. We recognise that science is important throughout our lives and children should be encouraged to understand how it can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave and understand why things have changed. We develop their understanding of science through different types of enquiries that help them to answer questions about the world around them.
