At Holy Family Catholic Primary School our intent is that children develop an enthusiasm for science through a range of engaging and hands-on activities. Their knowledge and understanding of important scientific concepts are developed, along with key processes and skills and vocabulary. 

Children are taught different ways of thinking, how to find things out and how to communicate their ideas effectively. We endeavour to make lessons thought-provoking and relevant, leading children to wonder, ask questions, research and then discuss their learning. 

Ultimately, we aspire to ensure the children become successful, confident learners through science, leaving primary school equipped with the scientific knowledge and skills needed to succeed in their secondary education and beyond.
