Embed a knowledge and skills rich primary science curriculum in your school


We want to ensure that every child gains a rich knowledge of the world, has experiences to make sense of it, and builds the confidence to make judgements on what they see. 

Our strategically sequenced curriculum ensures pupils gain the knowledge they need to discover, understand and begin to explain the world around them. It also ensures pupils learn about the scientific processes through which science is achieved and applied.

Our Science Mastery programme will allow your school to embed a proven mastery approach through:

  • a well-sequenced and interlinked KS1 and KS2 curriculum for Science
  • integrated training and professional development – to help all staff (including non-specialists) to develop confidence in teaching Science
  • a full suite of classroom planning and delivery resources – available on MyMastery in bite-sized units, for easy implementation.

The Science Mastery programme has been rigorously piloted across the Ark Academy Trust to ensure every unit works effectively in the classroom and we’re excited to open access further this year to our partner schools. Find out how your school can get involved below.

All of our Mastery programmes are written by teachers for teachers and you can be certain that they work in the classroom as every programme is thoroughly tested both within the Ark Academy Trust and with schools outside our trust. 

We regularly collect feedback on Science Mastery from teachers using the curriculum in their schools. We then update, improve and develop the programme to ensure every unit is effective, easy to implement and engaging for everyone.

Our approach


Thought and care has gone into how to build rich and deep scientific learning in primary schools. There has been a dual focus on what children should be learning and how best it should be taught. 

Science Mastery provides you with a knowledge-rich, coherent curriculum that has been strategically sequenced for maximum success. It builds pupils’ knowledge, embeds opportunities to work scientifically and nurtures positive attitudes towards science.

Fiona Chapman | Principal at Ark Dickens Primary Academy

A game changer! Expectations raised across the board for pupils and staff!

The curriculum has been strategically developed with each unit building on knowledge, skill and understanding. The content and layout of the workbooks makes them easily navigable for every pupil. Teachers have ownership over their lessons through the ability to adapt the resources to allow personal scaffolding or challenge for each individual. The full roll out of the programme across Ark Dickens has been eagerly anticipated and enthusiastically received by all.

Looking for a comprehensive mastery programme for History and Geography as well?

Our Science Mastery programme has been designed to work alongside our History and Geography Mastery programme for an effective whole school approach to teaching these subjects. Our curriculum design team have developed all three curriculum sequences with subject integrity at the heart of learning, but where meaningful cross-curricular links are beneficial to your pupils’ understanding we have embedded them into the curriculum providing a rich learning experience.
