Overview

At St. Pius X Catholic Primary School our vision is to inspire curiosity and questioning of the world we live in through scientific enquiry and the development of scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding. This will enable our children to explore and discover the world around them, so they have a deeper understanding an awareness of the world we live in.

 

Aim

Our aim, is to create stimulating scientific enquiries, to help children answer specific questions about the world around them and to equip them with scientific knowledge to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
