Primary Science Teacher Awards

Celebrating and rewarding outstanding teachers in primary science

We are the proud sponsor of the Primary Science Teacher Awards (PSTAs), which are supported by the Royal Society, the Association for Science Education and TTS Group.

Teachers that are doing incredible work, raising standards, excelling in tough conditions and going above and beyond deserve to be celebrated. The Primary Science Teacher Awards do just that - we celebrate, reward and provide a plethora of opportunity for these deserving teachers.

The awards are open to all current practising Primary Teachers (full or part-time) who:

  • are innovative and creative in teaching science;
  • inspire colleagues and contribute to developing science in their school and beyond;
  • engage pupils in the excitement and fascination of science.

Teachers who win a Primary Science Teacher Award support colleagues in their own and other schools, either locally, regionally or nationally, to raise the profile of science and the quality of primary school science provision.

Established in 2003, the awards are presented during the annual Primary Science Teacher College Conference, at which family, friends and colleagues gather to recognise their outstanding achievements.

Winners are automatically inducted into the Primary Science Teacher College as a PSTT College Fellow, where they have access to many benefits including funding in excess of £500,000 to help shape primary science for the better.
