BCS Science Principles

Using ideas generated from pupils, School Council, and from all school staff, we devised five Principles for our science teaching. These are the 5 key ideas that form the essence or fundamental base of our science teaching and learning. They should be evident in and encapsulate all that we do.

Igniting curiosity and potential!

We are curious and questioning.

We experiment and discover.

We value mistakes.

We learn something new.

We are excited and inspired.

Primary Science Quality Mark Science is held in high regard at The Blue Coat School. Our well-resourced Science Department provides a wealth of opportunities for children to gain hands on experience of a wide range of scientific ideas and concepts. We have achieved the prestigious Primary Science Quality Mark, awarded for a significant commitment to science teaching and learning.



There are two brand new science laboratories which provide excellent spaces for pupils to learn all disciplines of science. The laboratories are fully equipped with individual workstations with gas and water for practical experiments.

The Blue Coat Garden and Forest School enable the children to experience a wide range of activities outside the classroom. The potential for scientific discovery is vast and we are excited by these new initiatives, which dovetail into our Life Skills and Outdoor Education programmes.
