Science is a highly valued subject at Sandal Castle Primary. This year we are aiming to achieve 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.

We will be joining a local hub of science subject leaders, evaluating and moderating the quality of science within our school.

Achievement of the PSQM award celebrates our schools commitment to excellent primary science.
