An Academy of the Great Learners Trust



'Science knows no country because knowledge belongs to humanity and is the torch which illuminates the world.'

Louis Pasteur



At Princes Risborough Primary School, we want our children to learn, believe and grow together. Our science curriculum enables us to excite and motivate learners; curiosity is encouraged and celebrated and we want to inspire children to question, explore and develop an understanding of the world around them.


We want our children to thrive in challenge, push the boundaries and maybe even consider a STEM career beyond their education. It is our intent to impart a lifelong love of science within our children, an appreciation of how science has changed our lives and an understanding that it is vital for prosperity in the future.


Our science curriculum inspires children to learn through their mistakes, it allows them to take the lead in scientific enquiry and discover their role, impact and place within our environment. We challenge our children to explain their understanding, justify their predictions, make observations and draw conclusions from their own scientific knowledge, as well as investigating questions and finding answers.


We want to see our children develop into confident, articulate and inquisitive learners. This is achieved through our coverage of the science curriculum, our use of scientific vocabulary and children’s discovery of both practical enquires and the study of scientists across the disciplines: Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
