At Cleves, we aim to ensure all pupils are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future. Pupils develop an enthusiasm for and enjoyment of science through a range of engaging and hands-on activities that encourage them to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena.
We are ambitious about developing pupil’s scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding of important scientific ideas, along with key processes and skills, through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Pupils develop an understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them.
We endeavour to make lessons thought-provoking and inspiring, leading pupils to wonder, ask questions, research and then discuss their learning at home to become successful, confident learners, enjoying the process of exploring values and ideas through science.
At the core of the Cleves curriculum, we ensure that the pupils have opportunities to develop the skills of investigating, evaluating and collaborating alongside developing a resilient mind-set.
