The Craven Partnership

The Craven Partnership is a group of 7 primary schools in Craven who have been supported by the Ogden Trust to set up a schools partnership.  The schools involved are:

  • Bentham CP School
  • Bradleys Both CP School
  • Cononley CP School
  • Cowling CP School
  • Kildwick CE VC Primary School
  • Sutton in Craven CP School
  • Water Street CP School

The science coordinators from all the schools involved have all worked together fro a number of years as part of the CASTLE alliance and are very excited at the opportunity the Ogden Trust have given us to form this partnership.


Our aim this year is to create a high level of interest within our pupils and to have more pupils fully engaging with scientific learning through a range of high quality enrichment activities. By the end of the year we would like pupils to feel they have participated in exciting science events and to have grown in their understanding of Science and in their interest in following lines of enquiry. Some pupils will also have developed their leadership skills and a sustainable programme of enrichment activities will be in place.

We want teachers to have their understanding of Physics to be developed through high quality CPD and to be well equipped to deliver high quality lessons, thus raising attainment.

We want to raise the profile of Science so we can build on this in the following years and further engage families and develop Science capital.
