Science Intent


At Gatcombe Park Primary school, we aim to develop children as scientists who demonstrate these characteristics:


  • Curiosity, passion and excitement.
  • A secure understanding of the world around them, built on prior knowledge, and that it is ever-changing.
  • Ability to make links between knowledge and application across the curriculum and in their lives
  • Communicate their knowledge verbally, through reporting scientific findings and in solving challenging problems in different contexts
  • Competence and confidence in practical skills, becoming independent in planning and carrying out scientific investigations.
  • Think independently and raise questions about working scientifically and the knowledge and skills that arise
  • Confidence to embrace the unknown and welcome doubt
