Phiz Labs

Primary schools very rarely have dedicated science labs. The Phiz Lab initiative is about creating a dedicated science learning environment to support and engage teachers and pupils, in order to:

  • Improve progress and attainment in science
  • Provide better quality learning and teaching in science
  • Raise the science profile
  • Raise aspirations of pupils
  • Increase parental engagement 
  • Facilitate, support and improve primary science CPD

If you think your school would be suitable to host a Phiz Lab or you would like to find out more about setting up a primary science lab, we have produced a helpful handbook. If you have any further questions please contact Wendy Cox, Head of School Partnerships,

You can also read this Phiz Lab feature which appeared in Primary Science magazine.

Phiz Lab is great news for the school and for students. It's a fantastic room which provides all the facilities which pupils need to thrive in science.
