At Starbank, we believe that an outstanding Science education is at the heart of a well-rounded and holistic curriculum, centred around the child. We aim to develop scientific knowledge, and develop understanding of the natural world first-hand, through investigation, discussion and enquiry.
We recognise that in an increasingly scientific and technological age, children need to acquire knowledge, skills and attitudes to better prepare them for modern life, which we endeavour to provide through a well-planned, well-resourced and progressive science curriculum. We believe in encouraging a child’s natural curiosity, facilitating a love of Science, and fostering a mind-set of ‘awe and wonder’.
Our aim is to empower all of our children to recognise themselves as scientists and see their place in the scientific community. We aim to instil a whole school ethos, in which every child will value the world around us and understand our responsibility towards the wider environment and community.
