Our Science Vision
Science and Engineering are rapidly growing and important industries in the modern world. Even if children do not become scientists or engineers they will grow up in a world that requires scientific literacy and critical thinking skills. Science is all around us and helps children to make sense of the world.
At Renhold Primary School we recognise the importance of Science and strive to maintain a high profile for the subject within our school. Our desire to enthuse and inspire children to develop a lifelong love of science is reflected in our curriculum, extra- curricular activities and learning environments.
A scientist observes, questions, creates hypotheses, experiments, records data, and then analyses that data. All children can be scientists by following their own natural curiosity and at Renhold Primary teachers help to facilitate these skills in order for children to flourish.
We are delighted to have been awarded the Primary Science Quality Mark Gilt Award (2019)
This is an extract from the feedback which we received from the assessor:
This is a strong submission and I have no hesitation in recommending it for the PSQM GILT. The subject is being led effectively, enthusiastically and energetically. As a result, children are being engaged and inspired. Their feedback is so positive. You have momentum and I am sure that the very effective leadership will ensure that science continues flourish. Very well done.
