St Matthew’s Primary School in Little Lever wins science award
YOUNG Einsteins proved a class act after their school gained the highest possible award in the teaching of science.
St Matthew’s CE Primary School in Little Lever has been awarded the Primary Science Quality Gold Award.
The award symbolises the school’s commitment to excellence in science teaching and learning.
The school is one of just 62 schools to receive the gold award this year.
Since its national launch in 2010, more than 850 schools have achieved either bronze, silver or gold. Jane Turner, national director of the programme, said: “The standards of the submissions has been extremely high and their content is quite breathtaking.
“Science subject leaders, their colleagues, headteachers, children, parents and governors should be very proud.”
Headteacher Georgina Ryding said: “We are absolutely delighted to have received the award. As far as we know we are the only school in Bolton to have reached the gold standards so it is a huge achievement. We had to show that children were enthused and excited about science and how it is relevant in their lives.
“We also showed we had taken it beyond the classroom to parents and grandparents.
“We are very fortunate to have Eleanor Atkinson, our science teacher, who really has led from the front.”
