At St. Peter’s C.E. Primary School, we want our children to be curious, inquisitive, creative and determined. We want to them to be curious enough to look at their own bodies and the world that surrounds them and begin to question, ‘what, how and why?’, inquisitive enough to become habitual in asking searching questions that lead to a deeper understanding, creative enough to conceive methods and measures that will lead to answers, and determined enough to meet and overcome the many pitfalls and misconceptions they will face along the way- not as individuals, but as a strong team of resourceful and resilient scientists.
Be Curious. Be Creative. Be Determined. Be St. Peter’s.
Our aims echo those found in the National Curriculum Framework Document. We aim to ensure that our children:
- develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics,
- develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them,
- are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
In May 2021, we were awarded the Primary Science Quality Mark in recognition of all the amazing science learning that takes place at our school.

Charlotte and Harry help Mr Badley keep the science resources orderly and accounted for. Each Monday, they take 'orders' from the class teachers and deliver the required resources at the right times, as well as offering any other assistance the teachers might need. They also take measurements from our weather station each day so that classes studying the weather and changing seasons have data readily available. They are a huge help!
