Vision

We want children to be inquisitive and to gain scientific knowledge that will prepare them for the next stage of their education.


Main Principles – At Bramhope

  • Teaching enables children to develop an understanding of key scientific knowledge building on their previous knowledge and experiences, and encourages the use of scientific vocabulary.
  • Science promotes children's curiosity, asking scientific questions about their learning and investigating the unknown and unexpected.  
  • Science  includes practical investigations, visitors, whole school events and cross curricular links in order to make it real and relevant for the children.
  • Our children learn about diversity in science and make links in their learning with scientific careers to broaden their understanding of science in the real world.
