Learning Outcome

  Every Westwood pupil will become an inquisitive learner through the acquisition of scientific knowledge and skills and show care and concern for the environment.

Curricular Objectives

  The Science department seeks to prepare our students to be effective citizens with the ability to function and thrive in an increasingly technologically-driven world.  Central to the Science curriculum framework is the spirit of scientific inquiry. The Science curriculum seeks to nurture each student as an inquirer, fuelling each child’s natural curiosity. Ultimately, we hope to develop pupils who enjoy Science and value scientific inquiry as an important tool to help them explore their natural and physical world.
