Science at Sandown Bay Academy helps develop the confidence, knowledge and skills to find answers to students’ questions about the workings of the biological, chemical, physical and technological world and become better informed about the world around them.
We feel it is our duty to inspire young people to see beauty in the order and chaos in the universe in which we live. To ask questions to enable them to make sense of the world around them and to encourage them as all times to reach for the stars in their ambitions. We will support all of our students to strive, believe, achieve.
What are our aims?
Our aims for science are in line with the aims of the national curriculum for science. To provide a high-quality science education providing the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics, supported through the working scientifically strand. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science.
What will my child be studying?
In all key stages, there is now a significantly heavier focus on mathematical fluency. The science curriculum is supported by an understanding of much of the mathematics curriculum and this will be further developed in science in a practical context.
