Our Science Vision
Science is continually developing and is reflected in the most modern advancements in our changing world, but can also be seen across the history of the universe. For this reason we believe science is important as it relates to all aspects of life.
Science helps us to make sense of the past, develop our knowledge in the present and will shape our future. We adopt the Church of England’s vision for education that children may experience life in all of its fullness (John 10:10) and to help understand our world we must be wise, have hope, display dignity in our achievements and failures whilst working together as a community. This underpins our school vision, whilst developing our scientists.
Through science at Tardebigge School the children will feel safe to take risks, be curious, whilst feeling inspired. Our aim is to capture the awe and wonder of the world through exploration and enquiry, whilst managing misconceptions.
Our teaching will facilitate opportunities for practical learning, risk taking, knowledge and progression in fun and engaging ways. We adhere to the National Curriculum, working scientifically, ensuring our lessons are relevant and encourage children to know real life scientists, giving real life role models and aspirations for all children. Our children are encouraged to ask the big questions and find their own ways to answer them.
Our purpose is to develop a passion for science for all and an opportunity to enquire throughout the school day. We are all scientists.
