The National Curriculum for Science aims to ensure that all pupils 
  • 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.


At St James' CE Primary, Science is delivered as part of our Topic Curriculum which is primarily taken from the Curriculum Maestro units. For more information on how this is structured, see the Science Curriculum overview below.
