Happiness, Progress, Success


"It was fun and interesting when we learnt about teeth, diet and animal adaptations. We questioned, discussed and investigated further." Robyn (Year 5)

At Hadlow Primary School we facilitate an enriching, inclusive science curriculum. Underpinning all lessons, we question, investigate and explore; creating a culture of critical thinking and resilience. We make links within and across subjects; building curiosity, enthusiasm and awareness of science in daily life, within our community and through different career paths. Making connections through the natural and physical world, we develop a clear understanding of how science relates to our lives. 

By building upon prior knowledge, and by using retrieval strategies, we ensure that children have a conceptual understanding and have the opportunity to explore and develop their sense of scientific enquiry.



The National Curriculum for Science aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics
  • develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them
  • are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future
