Science is taught on a weekly basis to all pupils at Chelford CE Primary School. The documents below outline the School's approach to ensuring that children develop sufficient knowledge to meet the demands of the National Curriculum and have opportunities to develop their skills when working scientifically; this means that by the end of their time at Chelford CE Primary, children recognise the need for fair testing and can plan, carry out and evaluate a range of different investigations and experiments to test an idea of hypothesis.

At Chelford CE Primary School, pupils are inspired to learn about the work of many different scientists and their contributions to the world. As such, they are empowered to recognise that anybody with a passion for science and discovery, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, disability or any other personal characteristic, can excel and make a telling contribution to wider society. As part of our programme of study, children learn about the achievements of individuals such as Sir David Attenborough, Mary Anning, Katherine Johnson and locally celebrated astronomer Sir Bernard Lovell amongst others.

In keeping with our wider curriculum values, pupils are also offered the opportunity to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding through inspirational visits to science museums and exhibitions. In addition, we are also proud to collaborate with partners from Mad Science to offer an engaging after-school provision for our budding scientists!

Mr Mark Norman is the nominated subject leader for science and works closely with our staff and link governor to ensure that pupils enjoy an inspiring science education.
