Curriculum Intent Statement for STEM


In STEM, we develop the children’s knowledge and skills in line with the school’s vision

for knowledge and skills based curriculum.

We inspire creativity by facilitating thought-provoking investigations.

We encourage discovery by giving the children the means to explore scientific, technological, engineering and mathematical concepts. We foster a curiosity by encouraging ingenuity and questioning.

We develop independence by nurturing fundamental skills through child-led learning,

We instil resilience by challenging the children with problem solving style investigations.

As a result, the children respect and value STEM subjects and are lifelong learners.
