Curriculum Intent

At Havant Academy we believe that a high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity. 

All pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of Science in order for them to develop into well-rounded citizens with an appreciation of the diverse world that we live in. Through building up a body of key core and facilitating knowledge and concepts, pupils will be encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. 

They will be encouraged to understand how Science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, analyse causes, encourage creativity and problem solve. They will be supported to interrogate sources for facts and read for comprehension. Through safe and purposeful practical learning, students will demonstrate the school values of Work Hard, Be Kind with No Excuses and develop teamwork and leadership skills to prepare them for life beyond the school gates.
