At Welton, the planning and implementation of Science matches the requirements of the National Curriculum with teachers ensuring that every lesson has both a ‘Scientific Knowledge’ and ‘Working Scientifically’ focus. The breadth of our Science curriculum is adapted to our beliefs about the needs of our pupils and our values as a school.

We have agreed that within our Science curriculum, Welton children need:

  • To develop their scientific understanding and vocabulary through first hand experiences
  • To make use of our outdoor environment and the local area to enhance scientific learning
  • To appreciate the subject through aspirational visitors, role models and events for future STEM careers
