Holy Cross School recognised for quality of science teaching

Holy Cross Primary School, Uckfield, has been recognised for its commitment to excellence in science, teaching and learning.

It has been presented with the Primary Science Quality Mark which recognises schools that are successfully engaging children with science, and creating positive attitudes towards science.

The Science Mark enables schools to work together to share good practice and is supported by professional development led by local experts.


It encourages teacher autonomy and innovation while offering a clear framework for development in science subject leadership, teaching and learning.

Jane Turner, Primary Science Quality Mark director said gaining the ward was a significant achievement for a school.

“The profile and quality of science teaching and learning in each awarded school is high.


“Children are engaging with great science both in and outside the classroom, developing positive attitudes towards science, as well as secure scientific understanding of skills.

“Science subject leaders, colleagues, headteachers, children, parents, and governors should be very proud.”

Holy Cross headteacher Mrs Cathy Dart said: “We are delighted to have been awarded the Primary Science Quality Mark. The governors and I are proud of our Science Lead, Miss Charlotte Travers, who has worked hard to encourage all our children to engage with science.”
