Science

The intent (what we intend to teach) of the Science curriculum can be seen in the DHCPS Art and Design Technology Policy and the Long and Medium Term plans which is aligned to the aims and objectives of the National Curriculum. This should be read alongside our whole school curriculum policy which details our whole school curriculum offer, how we are committed to and seek to achieve a broad and balanced, knowledge rich curriculum and why we teach using the methods that we use which are summarised in Rosenshine's 'Principles of effective instruction.'

The implementation of this (how we intend to teach it) is outlined in the Science subject on a page.  This should be read alongside our whole school educational strategic overview which details our whole school curriculum design and core curriculum aims.  The subject specific 'subject on a page' documents  show how each subject prioritises each of the curriculum aims and details a route map of how each subject is effectively designed and crafted to seek to achieve these aims. 

We monitor the impact of the Science curriculum through various means including: evidence of work, pupil conferences, Science end of unit assessments and lesson observations.  These are analysed on a termly basis and a 'strategic evaluation and development plan' for Science produced which contributes to the whole school ongoing continuous improvement cycle and whole school self-evaluation
