At Ledbury Primary School we are committed to delivering an exciting, child-led, enquiry based science curriculum.  We have worked with the children to decide what makes a great science lesson and used these ideas to inform our Principles of Teaching and Learning as laid out below.

Through our curriculum we want the children to:

  • be inspired to find out more and confident to report their findings  
  • understand that science is open ended and there are always opportunities to discover more  
  • develop and share ideas and feel able to question these ideas and those of others based on evidence generated  
  • record in a variety of creative ways including the use of technology  
  • be assessed in a formative way which challenges them by providing the next steps  
  • confidently use scientific vocabulary 


LPS has been awarded the Silver Primary Science Quality Mark
