Exeter Road Community Primary School recognised for excellence in science teaching

Exeter Road Community Primary School has today been awarded the prestigious Silver Space Education Quality Mark, in recognition of its excellent work compared nationally.

UK schools and colleges receive the Space Education Quality Mark when they can show that they have significantly used the context of space in subjects, have worked with other organisations, shared resources and used space to enrich the curriculum.

The Space Education Quality Mark was created by ESERO-UK, which supports the space sector and teachers to open doors for young people from all backgrounds, by delivering inspiring world-class teaching in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects.

Alex Brown, STEM Support Programme Manager at STEM Learning, said:
“We are delighted to congratulate Exeter Road Community Primary School on receiving the Silver Space Education Quality Mark. Each school and college who receives the Space Education Mark has demonstrated a real and ongoing commitment to excellent STEM education in their school. Exeter Road Community Primary School is a great example of this.”

Headteacher Paul Gosling, said:
“Science - particularly space science - is a subject our children love learning about. The ‘wow’ brought to the entire school community recently when we borrowed, for a short time, a collection of actual Moon rocks fired children's interest like never before. I’m delighted to say on behalf of everyone how pleased and proud we are to receive this award.

Science Leader Robin James commented:
“I remember my own excitement as a child watching early the Apollo missions. Space science still really enthuses children and is sure to play a big part in their futures, not least in 2024 when they see the first woman take a step on the Moon.”

To help achieve a world-leading STEM education for all young people across the UK, teachers, teaching assistants or technicians from other primary or secondary schools and colleges, including independent schools can apply for the Space Education Quality Mark.

At Exeter Road Community Primary School we think we have the perfect sized school.  With a straight one form entry and having around 210 pupils in the main school, we are big enough to provide children with lots of opportunities for developing academically and socially but small enough that we get to know pupils really well.  Children can start at Exeter Road from 2 years old as we have pre-school carefully integrated into our early years setting and all national funding schemes for pre-school care are catered for.

We pride ourselves on having a calm & friendly atmosphere where we take time to get to know each child as an individual person.  At Exeter Road we believe that Every Child Can Succeed.  Find out more about our Ethos here.

The school has before school care available from 7:45 am and has childcare available up until 6 pm.
