Our vision for science at Penwortham.
In science, we will inspire our children by giving them the opportunities to pursue their natural curiosity, promoting the experience of exploring and investigating scientific phenomena, in a range of contexts, to ensure a continually evolving knowledge and understanding of the world around them. Our children will be encouraged to ask questions, take risks, experiment, reflect, make and learn from mistakes, in a safe environment whereby they acquire and apply core skills which equip them for an ever-changing world. While not all our children will follow a career in science or related disciplines when they leave education, science literacy will influence their lives daily: this means that the science we develop at Penwortham is of vital importance to individuals and the world’s well-being.
