Preparing resilient learners in an ever changing world
‘Leaders, managers and governors have made sure that the curriculum captures pupils’ interest and encourages pupils’ positive attitudes to school.’ Ofsted 2016

The science curriculum is led by Ms Moore. We work hard to ensure that the children have a range of exciting science opportunities whilst at Vittoria, so that children develop into confident scientists with questioning minds. We have been awarded two quality marks for science: the Primary Science Quality Mark Outreach and the Space Education Gold Quality Mark. These demonstrate that not only is science a strength of the school, but also that we support other schools in sharing our best practice.

Our Science Principles

Science helps us understand the world; how things work, why things happen and how we can change things. At Vittoria our science is interactive, practical and child-led, encouraging curiosity, responsibility and independence. We live in a fast changing world without borders, where it is important that our pupils are equipped for the science related jobs of the future and the challenges they will face.

At Vittoria

  • Science inspires and develops curiosity about the world, encouraging children to ask questions and think of themselves as capable scientists.
  • Science develops children’s independence in investigation skills, promoting good team work and scientific reasoning.
  • Children’s learning is related to real life situations and experiences, taking place outside as well as inside, including meeting scientists and going on science related visits.
  • Science is fun and hands on, developing a love of science.
  • Staff feel secure in their subject knowledge and can pass their enthusiasm onto the children.
