PSQM Award

We are delighted to announce that St. Clare's have achieved the Primary Science Quality Mark (PSQM) Award!

This award is the only national scheme to develop and celebrate the quality of science teaching and learning in primary schools. The award shows that children are engaging in great science both in and outside the classroom, developing positive attitudes towards science, as well as securing science understanding and skills. 

 

Our Core Principles of Science

Our core principles of science, developed with staff and pupils, outline our aims and objectives for science. We know good science teaching and learning is happening when...

-        We explore

-        We are curious

-        We experiment

-        We understand why

-        It is fun!

This Year St. Clare's have worked closely with Bradford's Science & Media Museum.

The successful partnership with the museum has been recognised by BBC Radio Leeds and they carried out a news story celebrating our work.
