Science at Ian Ramsey Church of England Academy aims to spark interest and enjoyment of the natural phenomena around us. Our curriculum develops pupils’ understanding and knowledge of key concepts that underpin everyday life, whilst promoting investigative skills that question and help pupils understand how the world works.
DEEP Curriculum Overview
We have organised our lower school DEEP curriculum designed in a spiral curriculum so that, each year, key concepts are revisited and built up on to support pupils’ learning in biology, chemistry and physics.
In upper school, our DEEP curriculum provides time for pupils to develop their scientific understanding and add to the earlier foundations with frequent opportunities to review and consolidate important concepts. All pupils study the Combined Science course, with the opportunity for pupils to study Separate Sciences option at GCSE.
