Curriculum Intent

The Science Department at Cardinal Newman Catholic School aims to deliver a broad and balanced curriculum that whilst covering the necessary content for public examinations also engages, enthuses, develops an enquiring mind and demonstrates that pupils are ‘made for greatness’. 

We want our pupils to have awe and wonder for the world around them and within them, for them to be scientifically literate and numerate so they can critique and evaluate science in the wider world whilst formulating their own ideas, opinions and question those around them.

This understanding of the world around and within will promote our ASPIRE values and allow pupils to be valued members of a diverse and tolerant society.
