St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School



‘By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.’ Hebrews 11:3 


At St Joseph's, we do all we can to encourage our children to explore, investigate, experiment, question and be curious about the world around them. The aim of our Science curriculum is to nurture and develop our pupils’ interest in the subject, whilst also supporting them to fulfil their potential and develop a deep knowledge and understanding of scientific skills and methods. We want our pupils to discover their passion for Science through hands-on experiences so that they will be equipped to ask and answer scientific questions about the world around them and develop a greater understanding of the concepts and knowledge of Science.


Working with parents, we intend that our pupils leave St Joseph’s with a general sense of enquiry which encourages them to question and make suggestions throughout their life. We intend for our pupils to deepen their respect of the natural world through investigative science to enable them to develop a sense of awe of the world we live in. We aim to nourish an understanding of the working of God’s world and our responsibilities in looking after it, not just locally, but worldwide. We endeavour to prepare our pupils for life in an increasingly scientific and technological world and ready them for the next stage of their educational journey where they will feel passionate about making positive changes for the greater good.
