Science at Ashburton Primary School

The intent of our Science Curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that:


All children are INSPIRED to develop their talents and love of learning in all areas of the Science Curriculum.

Children BELIEVE in themselves and their abilities.

Children DISCOVER and enjoy a wide range of scientific experiences.

Children ACHIEVE their full potential in Science.

Children BELONG to a caring community, which cares about the past, present and future of its environment.


At Ashburton Primary School, all pupils are entitled to be taught the key knowledge, vocabulary and skills in the scientific disciplines to develop understanding of the world around them, at an age-appropriate level, and in line with the National Curriculum.


We aim to harness children’s natural excitement and curiosity and inspire them to pursue scientific enquiry.  Throughout the primary years, children should learn to explain and analyse, make predictions and solve problems.


Teachers aim to nurture a love for the natural world, excitement for future possibilities in science and provide many opportunities for pupils to respond creatively in their learning.
