At Erdington Academy, we intend to provide a high-quality science education that provides our students with the scientific knowledge and skills they need to apply science in the world we live in. We want pupils to have an appreciation of the subject and be enthusiastic about studying science.
In the dynamic world we live in, a world in which STEM subjects are at the forefront of future advancements, we deem it essential to prepare our students for this by ensuring that they are equipped with the knowledge of the subject, the methods, processes skills and applications coupled with it. This is enhanced by our knowledge rich-engaged curriculum which will ensure that students receive a valuable, enriched experience.
At the heart of our knowledge rich-engaged curriculum is investigating. Our teachers will ensure that all students receive a high-quality teaching and learning experiences through our teaching for excellence framework. Our teachers will instil a sense of excitement and curiosity by adapting our curriculum to ensure that we cater to the needs of all our students.
Our ultimate goal is that our students are able to apply their knowledge of science to explain what is occurring, forecasting and analysing the behaviour of natural phenomena. This will allow them to be critical thinkers and be able to explain scientific phenomena using evidence-based analysis of data. Our students will develop mathematical skills that they can use to their understanding of science, skills such as collecting, presenting, and analysing data. Our students will be adept in using essential scientific vocabulary, which helps in the procurement of scientific knowledge and understanding.
We strive to build confidence using our science curriculum to ensure that our students continue to further develop their skills into the next stage of their education.
