Science is one of the core traditional subjects we teach at Nursery Hill Primary School, along with English and Maths.

Children revel in the opportunity to be hands-on and find things out for themselves. It is an exciting, practical subject and often teachers and pupils find it a positive experience to learn about science like this!

Nursery Hill Primary School has achieved the PSQM Silver award for Science. The panel concurred with Mrs Makey's assessment that our involvement in PSQM has ensured we have continued to develop Science in school and that new staff have the same understanding of how Science should be taught.

Our values have been shared and continue to be embedded throughout science days and topic lessons. ​

"In the end all the key facets came together and demonstrated that you have indeed made good impact across the whole school and are worthy of PSQM silver level." ​

​Well done to Mrs Makey and the team!
