At the Priory Witham Academy, we offer the children high quality first-hand experiences which develop children’s natural curiosity. Scientific enquiry is at the heart of exciting and enriching Science lessons of biology, chemistry and physics and through this, children master both investigative and practical skills that underpin the development of scientific knowledge.

We encourage children to ask their own questions about the world around them and through a carefully planned cross-curricular approach, we develop the children’s own interests which helps to develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. We make good use of the excellent facilities that we have at Witham to ensure enriching learning experiences, including both indoors and outdoors, in addition to links with our secondary Science department.

We are really proud to have achieved the Silver ‘Primary Science Quality Mark’ during the 2016-2017 academic year, which celebrates the quality of Science teaching and learning in our school.
