Welcome to our Science page!
At Ludlow Primary School we aim to use Science to stimulate and excite pupils’ curiosity about phenomena and events in the world around them as well as giving them the opportunities to develop their understanding and increase their knowledge. We aim to promote the development of enquiry, exploration and observation within a meaningful context. Knowledge and skills taught have been taken from the Science National Curriculum.
Our school’s Curriculum Drivers are designed to ensure that pupils at Ludlow Primary School have the opportunity to understand and appreciate the world around them so they can develop into responsible, knowledgeable and caring international citizens of the 21st century. Our science curriculum is designed to support these drivers and our school’s core values.

Martin Rees grew up in Ludlow and went on to study at Cambridge and completed a PhD.

In 2005, Martin Rees was elevated to a life peerage, becoming Baron Rees of Ludlow.
