Curriculum: How do science and maths fit into the wider curriculum?
It is important to think about what the school’s science and maths curricula are and how they fit into the school’s wider curriculum (C1). Pupils should be engaged with science and maths from a young age, with sufficient time (C2) dedicated to their teaching, including hands-on and investigative work (C3). Pupils should have the opportunity to study enriched curricula, take part in extracurricular activities (C4) and be supported when moving between different Key Stages (C5).
- C1. How are the school’s science and maths curricula developed to provide pupils with a rich and broad learning experience?
- C2. How much time is spent teaching maths and science and how frequently? Does this differ across different age groups?
- C3. How are working scientifically and working mathematically embedded in the school’s science and maths curricula? How often do science lessons include hands-on activities?
- C4. How are the science and maths curricula enriched? What extracurricular opportunities are available for pupils?
- C5. How does the school aid with transitions between phases of education in regard to science and maths?
