Subject intent: 

At William Cassidi C of E (Aided) Primary School, we believe that a high-quality Science curriculum will provide all pupils with strong foundations for understanding the world around them. We want all children to develop a love of science and we aim to nurture children’s excitement and curiosity, and give them opportunities to explore and investigate, whilst developing their understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science. We also want children to be able to talk about what they know, so we place a strong emphasis on vocabulary when introducing new scientific knowledge and concepts. We have organised our curriculum in a way which maximises progression of both scientific skills and knowledge for all pupils. We also engage with STEM professionals and businesses in our community, visit places in our local area and celebrate key STEM events to help pupils to understand the uses of science, today and for the future.

Early Years


The revised EYFS framework became statutory on 1st September 2021. We use the EYFS framework document and 'Development Matters' to plan and teach our early years curriculum. Our early years team are in the process of writing our new curriculum and updating our subject overviews to reflect these changes.
