Our Vision


At St. Augustine's School, we feel that a high quality Science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Science changes our lives and we feel that all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of Science. We want children to develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. Pupils will be encouraged to understand how Science can be used to explain what is occurring; predict how things will behave and analyse causes.


Curriculum Aims


  • To develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
  • To develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of Science through different types of Science enquiries, which help them to answer specific questions about the world around them.
  •  to become equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of Science, today and in the future.


Key Skills


Our curriculum aims to develop five key skills to ensure our children are 'deepening' their understanding.

These are:

  • Explaining Science
  • Classification
  • Designing experiments
  • Data, tables and graphs
  • Making conclusions


These five key stands of learning are developed through all of our Key Stages.
