At Grove Primary School we are dedicated to sparking children's interest in and love of science through hands-on discovery. We put scientific enquiry at the heart of science teaching to sustain children's interest, and natural curiosity, in the world around them. The pupils are encouraged to develop their scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through a range of creative practical experiences. A scientifically literate population has always been important and pupils are encouraged to develop their scientific knowledge and power of rational explanation.
