Our school vision for Science is for all children to feel confident and excited to be working as Scientists. Our curriculum maps ensure that children experience a wide-range of scientific concepts and continuously develop skills of working scientifically. This enables the children’s natural curiosities to develop into real scientific thinking. Children learn through investigation, asking questions and planning strategies in which to find answers. In this way, children are fully prepared with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of Science in everyday life for today and for the future. Each year we celebrate British Science week with interactive whole school Science activities. We are proud of our partnership with Cummins, which enables us to have an annual Engineering week in school, during which each class participates in an Engineering workshop and our Upper Key Stage 2 pupils design and build their own car to race at Croft Circuit.

ICT in the 21st Century is an essential resource to support learning and teaching, as well as playing an important role in the everyday lives of children, young people and adults. Information and Communications Technology and Computer Science at Trinity Academy prepares pupils to participate in a rapidly changing world, in which work and other activities are increasingly transformed by access to varied and developing technology. We are committed to building on the use of these technologies in order to arm our young people with the skills to access life-long learning and employment.
We recognise that Computer Studies are an important tool in both the society we live in and in the process of teaching and learning. Pupils use computing tools to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information responsibly, creatively and with discrimination. They learn how to employ ICT to enable rapid access to ideas and experiences from a wide range of sources.
At Trinity Academy Eppleby Forcett and Middleton Tyas, we ensure that the children are taught to respect and protect our environment through reducing, recycling and reusing resources.
