Nurture Science

Contact lellis@eat.uk.com


The nurture science curriculum has been written in line with the aims and ethos of the KS3 national curriculum.  It helps prepare our pupils in gaining the scientific knowledge and skills needed for life in modern day Britain.  The principal focus of science teaching in KS3 is to develop a deeper understanding of a range of scientific ideas in the subjects of biology, chemistry and physics. Pupils will begin to see the connections between these subjects and become aware of some of the big ideas underpinning scientific knowledge and understanding.

Working scientifically underpins the science curriculum and pupils will be taught :

  • Scientific attitudes
  • Experimental skills
  • Analysis
  • Evaluation
  • Measurement skills

We follow the AQA unit award scheme, in particular the science units that link to the KS3 national curriculum

The AQA unit award scheme has been offered as a recording of achievement scheme for over 30 years.  It is a tried and tested means by which learners, no matter what their age or ability, can have their achievement formally recognised.

UAS can help learners with progression to

  • further study
  • training
  • employment
  • independent living
  • more active involvement in society.

UAS is shown to motivate, encourage, engage, support and raise self-esteem and can reward achievement which might otherwise go unrecognised.
