At Valley Invicta Primary School at Aylesford, we recognise the importance of Science in every aspect of daily life. As one of the core subjects taught in Primary Schools, we give the teaching and learning of Science the prominence it requires. The Scientific area of learning is concerned with increasing pupils’ knowledge and understanding of our world, and with developing skills associated with Science, encouraging inquiry-based learners.
The experience of pupils using Scientific methods of investigation should develop the natural curiosity of the child, encourage respect for living organisms and the physical environment and provide opportunities to developing children’s questioning. The National Curriculum will provide a structure and skill development for the science curriculum taught throughout the school, which is linked into our knowledge-based curriculum learning. We endeavour to ensure that the Science curriculum we provide, will give children the confidence and motivation to continue to further develop their skills into the next stage of education and adulthood.

Very soon, Valley Invicta Primary School at Aylesford will have elected its very first subject ambassador. Pupil voice is at the heart of our school, therefore our pupils work very closely with the subject leader to ensure learning is consistently fun, exciting and engaging!
