Science Mission Statement

At Samuel Laycock School our intention is to provide all pupils with a broad, balanced and engaging curriculum.  Our Science curriculum covers all three Science disciplines and aims to develop pupils interest in and love of Science.

The curriculum is planned and implemented around a spiral model whereby key concepts and ideas are revisited and reviewed to ensure that knowledge and understanding is secure.  Units covered include:

  • Science skills
  • Human nutrition
  • Light and Sound
  • Our Bodies
  • Forces
  • Electricity
  • Separating mixtures
  • Space and many more.


In Key Stage 4 pupils, will complete units of work and projects linked to ASDAN accreditation in preparation for their next steps.

It is our aim to nurture a lifelong love of science by providing opportunities for pupils to:

  • Develop a curiosity for the world around them
  • Ask questions about the world around them and how things work
  • Investigate and find out about the world around them
  • Develop the skills and confidence to experiment and investigate
  • Develop problem solving skills
  • Apply their learning to everyday items and situations
  • Build resilience and a ‘can do’ attitude – sometimes in Science things don’t work first time!
