At Burford Primary School, we want our children to develop a growing curiosity in the world around them. Through studying science, and scientists, we want to support of vision of Respect, Aspire and Achieve.

As this is our first year of teaching science in a five class school, we are currently exploring the best way of ensuring that children receive the best opportunities to develop their scientific understanding within a mixed age class. In Lower School this is through discrete teaching of science to each year group. In Upper School, this approach is also used alongside some use of whole class teaching underpinned by scientific knowledge and understanding at an age appropriate level.
