Primary School

Broadening horizons

Get In Touch



Our science curriculum is built around meeting and exceeding the national curriculum. It has been designed to build systematically so that concepts and vocabulary are revisited and remembered for the long term. We are committed to developing the children's investigative skills. Wherever possible we build opportunities for them to test their ideas through child-led investigations which are focused on strengthening their knowledge as wel as their ability to plan and carry out tests.

Cranbourne holds the Primary Science Quality Mark at silver level. This recognises our commitment to high quality, "hands on", exciting science which challenges the children to develop scientific skills not just learn lots of facts. The final report said; "It must be great to be a child at Cranbourne" . . .  can't get better than that!
