To enable the acquisition of a systematic, scientific approach to learning, developing useful knowledge,

skills and attitudes about the world in which we live, science experience is presented to the children in a practical, relevant context. Systematic inquiry, analysis of problems, formation of ideas, their testing and modification are encouraged through whole class, group or individual investigations and project work, designed to arouse the children's natural curiosity.


At Staplecross MCP School we aim to provide our children with a high quality science education, which lays the foundation for understanding the world around them. We encourage children to question, discuss and explore scientific ideas and phenomena, using practical investigations to enhance their understanding and technical skills. For each unit of study, we build upon the children’s prior knowledge and provide a stimulating environment which promotes open-ended discovery.

Staplecross MCP School follows the new Primary National Curriculum for Science. Please click to follow the link below:
