Science is a systematic investigation of the physical, chemical and biological aspects of the world which relies on first-hand experiences and on other sources of information. The scientific process and pupils’ problem-solving activities will be used to deepen their understanding of the concepts involved.
Through science, pupils at Norwich Road Academy will continue to deepen their respect, care and appreciation for the natural world and all its phenomena.
Norwich Road Academy gives pupils a very high-quality offer in the subject of Science and this has been ratified by the recent earning of the PSQM - Primary Science Quality Mark. The PSQM is a comprehensive evidence-based professional development programme that effectively develops Science leadership, ensuring teachers have the knowledge, capability and support they need to transform science education and shape future generations.
The Primary Science Quality Mark is led by the University of Hertfordshire.
Helen Sizer (of The University of Hertfordshire) the PSQM Co-Director said: ‘By enabling effective science leadership, PSQM is powering the potential of all children to see the relevance and importance of science in their lives, now and in the future. Schools that have achieved a Primary Science Quality Mark have demonstrated a significant commitment to science leadership, teaching and learning and the profile and quality of science in each accredited school is very high. Science subject leaders, their colleagues, headteachers, children, parents and governors should be very proud.”
