At St Lawrence Catholic Primary School, the intent of our science curriculum is to ensure all children leave the school with a secure foundation of scientific knowledge and practical skills. This understanding will help to ensure all children have the ability to be successful in any potential future learning and enjoyment in the scientific field. We want our children to be determined, enthusiastic and motivated about science learning. We nurture the natural curiosity of our children during science lessons, enabling them to become independent in thought and actions and encouraging them to develop self-motivation and a life-long love of science learning.
We believe that science stimulates and excites children's curiosity about phenomena and events in the world around them. It also satisfies their curiosity with knowledge. This is because science links direct practical experience with ideas and it can engage learners at many levels. We believe that science will lead to a better understanding of ourselves and the world. It provides opportunities to appreciate scientific facts and concepts and to experience scientific discovery. Science is a crucial subject to expand curious minds. St Lawrence Catholic Primary School is a member of the Association for Science Education. Our primary science curriculum provides a useful starting point for teachers in planning and developing science lessons.

The Primary Science Quality Mark (PSQM) is an award scheme to celebrate the quality of science teaching and learning in primary schools. St Lawrence Catholic Primary School is very excited to be working towards the PSQM (Primary Science Quality Mark). Through staff and pupil questionnaires, our starting points have been established and a range of activities and strategies are being implemented to ensure that learners remain enthused and inspired by science as well as challenged and resilient.
