NWPA curriculum Intent:

Our curriculum at North Walsall Primary Academy is designed to deliver a broad and balanced education to all of our leaners so that they are confident and able to lead successful lives. We work hard to ensure our students understand how their learning links to the wider world and receive opportunities to broaden their cultural capital so they become responsible citizens within their communities and make positive contributions.

The aim of our science curriculum is to allow pupils to explore and discover the world around them with increasing confidence so that they develop a deeper understanding of the world they live in.

We ensure that through our science curriculum the children at NWPA:

  •  Develop understanding of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them.
  •  Are equipped with the scientific skills required to understand the uses today and for the future. We understand that it is important for lessons to have a skills-based focus, and that the knowledge can be taught through this.
