Science at Dilton Marsh C of E Primary School
Intent statement

At Dilton Marsh C of E Primary School we believe that a high quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world around us. Throughout time, Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Pupils should be encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about the world around them.

Our school vision is Together, we strive to provide a safe, nurturing and challenging environment within our Christian ethos of kindness and respect.

We share a passion for life-long learning and strive for the best for ourselves, others and the World.

Children are encouraged to become independent, curious and resilient learners with the ability to learn from their mistakes and accept challenges.


“For Nothing is Impossible with God.”

Luke 1 : 37


 Science in our school is about developing children’s ideas and ways of working that enable them to make sense of the world in which they live through working scientifically and understanding different scientific strands. The staff at Dilton Marsh C of E ensure that all children are exposed to high quality teaching and learning experiences, which allow children to explore their outdoor environment.

Through our school vision, we strive to have children who ‘have a passion for life-long learning’ and ‘curiosity’ to question scientific concepts. We want out children to challenge their thinking and know that possibilities are endless.
