This policy outlines the teaching and learning, organisation and management of the Science taught at The Link School. The school’s policy for Science is underpinned by The National Curriculum 2015 Guidelines (Key Stage 1 through 4) and the Statutory Framework for The Early Years Foundation Stage 2021 (EYFS).
Our high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all pupils are taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, our pupils are encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They are encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, analyse causes and develop the thinking skills to become scientific literate citizens.
Teaching and learning of Science at The Link School is reflective, adaptive, accessible yet ambitious and personalised to the changing needs of our learners.
