Our Vision:


At the Oakridge Schools Federation we recognise the vital role that science plays in our everyday lives and helping to develop the world in which we live. We aim to teach science through the delivery of practical, engaging scientific investigations to inspire the children's natural curiosity and develop their love of enquiry. We will develop and foster their enthusiasm to question the world in which we live to enable them to purpose their own hypotheses and develop their own tests.

They will experience and investigate scientific phenomena, in a range of contexts, to ensure a continually evolving knowledge and understanding of the world around them. Our children will be encouraged to:

  • Ask questions
  • Take risks
  • Make and learn from mistakes in a safe environment
  • Acquire and apply core skills which equip them for an ever-changing world
