The Leicester Cluster
A PSTT Cluster Network based in Leicestershire
The Leicester Cluster is a new cluster made up of schools that regularly attended Leicester Primary Science Network Meetings. In the initial instance, seven schools will be participating in the Leicester Cluster. Through previous discussions, the focus of the Leicester Cluster will be on outdoor learning, space and assessment.
The seven proposed cluster schools are outlined below and it is also hoped that at least one secondary school will also join the cluster.
Sandfield Close Primary School
Leicester LE4 7RE
Christ the King Catholic Primary School
Leicester LE3 6DF
Rolleston Primary School
Leicester LE2 9PT
Mayflower Primary School
Leicester LE5 5PH
Mellor Community Primary School
144 Checketts Road
Leicester LE4 5EQ
Stokes Wood Primary School

Sarah Eames, the Cluster Lead, outlines the vision of the Leicester Cluster below:
To establish a primary science cluster where teachers can exchange information and work collaboratively on specific themes projects that improve the provision of primary science in Leicester. Our long term aim to work with not just science leaders but other curriculum leaders to produce cross curricular projects that promote science learning. We would like to work with other Leicester groups to produce materials that can be used by a large number of primary schools; eg create a resource for Leicester’s Welford Road Cemetery that links with rocks and soil and/or work with the council to produce a science trail around our city, which can be cross-curricular to link with Richard III.
This section will be updated as the cluster programme develops.
