At Paddox, we want our children to be inquisitive and investigative learners, who are able to ask and answer questions confidently, using their own knowledge and real-life experiences.
Through our mastery approach, all learners are given the opportunity to succeed. We encourage children to work independently and make links between their learning and what goes on around them, thinking carefully about the scientific reasoning behind it.
We want the children to be competent in all areas of scientific enquiry and to have enthusiasm for their learning. Scientific enquiries cover a range of skills that are developed as the child progresses through school.
The Science curriculum supports the school’s REACH values as all children are expected to work hard and achieve well to be the best they can be.
