At Dartmouth Academy our science curriculum intent is to inspire young people in science. We create a stimulating and exciting learning environment where the teaching is both intellectually challenging and supportive. By empowering pupils to learn independently we allow them to flourish and achieve to the very best of their ability. We only offer the highest standards including quality resources and a safe, comfortable environment.

The science department aims to educate our pupils to be not only scholarly but also equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future. In particular, we teach pupils to be critical about information and to evaluate strategies and behaviours that could have an impact on the environment. We take opportunities to incorporate topical issues into our teaching, our teaching of sustainability and the environment links directly to our ethos as a Rights Respecting School.

Our 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.

•          Develop understanding of scientific concepts as a journey started in primary and developed throughout their time until year 11.
