At Salisbury we set out to maintain and develop our students’ natural curiosity by actively encouraging and supporting them to ask questions about the world around them. We believe that this will foster our students’ enthusiasm for science and help them fulfil their potential.
Whenever possible we endeavour to enable students to discover concepts for themselves by observing scientific phenomena and conducting investigations. Similarly, students’ own questions are explored through scientific enquiry: observing over time; pattern seeking; identifying, classifying and grouping; comparative and fair testing; researching using secondary sources. Children are taught the statutory requirements for science in all 3 areas of science: physics, chemistry and biology alongside working scientifically requirements.
