Science at Balfour focuses on an enquiry-based curriculum that encourages curious and analytical thinkers. From reception to year six, our learners build upon firm foundations and their own prior knowledge, developing a strong awareness of themselves and the world around them. Our young scientists are provided with a variety of opportunities that cement and challenge their natural love of science through accessible practical, physical and interactive learning experiences which are promoted by trips, parental involvement and community links. They are also able to make use of our local environments and habitat. Pupils will be empowered via the use of a broad and balanced understanding of science, developed through fun, exciting and relevant lessons that allow them to successfully transition to the next stage of their education.
