Science at Leigh Primary School




All children at Leigh Primary School are entitled to a high-quality science curriculum that provides the foundations for their understanding of the world. Children are encouraged to develop curiosity about the things they see and how science helps them to explain what is occurring, predict how things behave and analyse their causes.

The children will gain different experiences of working scientifically, from planning investigations for themselves to conducting them. The children will be taught to record data appropriately and how to explain their findings using their existing scientific knowledge. Our science curriculum strives to achieve the aims of the National Curriculum, ensuring that all pupils:


  • Develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through biology, chemistry and physics
  • Develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of scientific enquiries that help them to answer specific 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.


The children are enabled to achieve this through the rich curriculum offered in the science subject overview (see below).
