At Cromwell Primary School we have strived to maintain excellent standards in the teaching and learning of science. To meet national expectations for our children we have invested in the Collin’s Hub (version 2) scheme. This scheme is one which evolves to ensure teachers are always up-to-date with any changes to the new curriculum.

As part of our assessment routine we have established the Rising Stars material which helps teachers to track pupil progress throughout each topic through diagnostic and end of unit assessments.

In addition to meeting the statutory requirements, we aim to reinforce our children’s learning using Enrichment or practical lessons. These lessons aim to give the children the investigative opportunities to apply learning and close any gaps.

Our long- and medium-term plans for Science across the school can be found on our curriculum overview documents on our introduction page.

To foster collaborative thinking and higher order skills, we have put a significant focus on language development in science. To support children with this and towards the improvement of conceptual understanding, we encourage children to use Atom Learning: an online platform that is used to set science homework.

To increase our science capital, we have appointed Science Captains from years 3 to 6. These ambassadors will help support with igniting the spark our children are looking for in science lessons with an ambitious curriculum for all.

Cromwell J & I School is also on its journey to achieving its Primary Quality Mark in Science by the end of this academic year. This exciting and privileged opportunity is a gateway to making science accessible to all both at home and school in a fun, engaging and inspirational way.
