Science

Science is an exceptionally important subject, and it’s vital that children lay the foundations of their scientific understanding at primary school. At Concordia, we prioritise the teaching of scientific enquiry skills, giving the children the opportunity to learn through practical experience.

Principles of Science Teaching

At Concordia, great Science means:

  • practical, hands-on investigation and enquiry
  • excitement, fun, inspiration and innovation
  • giving children the independence to question, explore and make discoveries – delivering the ‘Eureka’ moment!

And, by doing this, ensuring every child is making progress as a scientist.
