Haslam Park Primary School

This year Miss Parton and Mrs Heywood are carrying on working towards achieving the Primary Science Quality Mark. This enables school to evaluate strengthen and celebrate the science provision at Haslam Park! We will be developing and improving subject leadership for science (SL), science teaching (T), science learning (L) and the wider opportunities for science learning (WO).

The teachers and children worked together to think about what makes science good in our school. 

We carry out different enquires in school
