At LCPS, we follow the National Curriculum for science. The learning journey has been sequenced to develop a range of scientific skills alongside knowledge about a range of topics. We encourage children to ask questions and explore their ideas in a practical way.
The whole school starts the week with science sessions on a Monday morning, starting the week in a practical and engaging way.
In March 2021, we began our Primary Science Quality Mark (PSQM) process auditing our provision, creating action plans and enriching our teaching. This journey is ongoing towards our final submission in March 2022.
In September 2021, we launched a local Enthuse Partnership with support from STEM. As the lead school, we coordinate the development of science across 8 local schools, coordinating CPD, hosting meetings, managing budgets and liaising with external agencies. The schools collaborate over two years finishing the project in the summer 2023.
