Fairford Primary School

Science

Welcome to the exciting world of science education at Fairford primary school, where young minds embark on a journey of discovery, curiosity, and hands-on learning. At our school, we believe in fostering a love for science from the earliest years, igniting the spark of wonder that propels students into a realm of exploration. Our teachers are passionate about cultivating a foundation in scientific enquiry, making learning an engaging and interactive experience. From captivating experiments to nature walks that unveil the wonders of the world around us, our primary school science curriculum is designed to inspire, challenge, and cultivate a lifelong enthusiasm for the scientific process. 

Primary Science Quality Mark - Outreach

We were thrilled to achieve the prestigious Primary Science Quality Mark (PSQM) Outreach Award, which was a testament to our unwavering commitment to excellence in science education. The PSQM Outreach Award celebrates our successful efforts in engaging with and positively impacting the wider community through innovative science initiatives, collaborative projects and family learning nights. This achievement is a testament to the hard work of our enthusiastic teachers, supportive parents, and, most importantly, the inquisitive minds of our students. We are proud to be recognised as a beacon of excellence in science education, dedicated to sharing the wonders of the scientific world with the broader community.

STEM enthuse Partnership

Together, with other local schools, we have formed a STEM Enthuse Cluster. The collaborative nature of this cluster creates a dynamic environment where educators collectively explore innovative teaching strategies, share best practices, and inspire each other to elevate STEM education.

The impact on the children in our schools is profound; they benefit from a richer and more diverse range of STEM activities; engaging in hands-on experiments; collaborative projects and they are exposed to real-world applications of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Through shared resources and expertise, our students gain access to a broader spectrum of STEM opportunities, fostering a love for learning that extends beyond the classroom.
