At New Silksworth Academy pupils are given appropriate learning opportunities so that they develop the skills needed to be active citizens within an increasingly scientific world. Science is a powerful and useful tool through which children’s understanding of the world around them is carefully developed. It is our aim to create a challenging environment that raises standards of achievement in Science through high quality teaching and learning. Pupils build up their scientific skills and knowledge, developing the necessary ability to investigate, question and understand scientific concepts. We link our learning opportunities in Science with the use of technology and computing.
