Science is a highly valued subject at Sandal Castle Primary.
This year we have achieved the Primary Science Quality Mark (Silver).
The PSQM ensures that science remains high profile in school. It helps us evaluate and develop all aspects of science teaching and learning in our school.
Our submission for Round 13 Primary Science Quality Mark at Silver level was successful. 347 schools have achieved a PSQM award this round. We are very proud to have attained this nationally recognised status.
