"As we look towards the future, we know we need equip our young people with skills to succeed. Gomer's innovative approach embedding STEM across the curriculum will make a big difference for local children for years to come." Caroline Dinenage MP
Local MP, Caroline Dinenage, has today congratulated Gomer Junior School for winning an award at the prestigious TES School Awards last week.
The Junior School won the Science, Technology, and Engineering Teacher or Team of the Year for the grassroots STEM programme. This approach embeds STEM subjects at the heart of the curriculum delivering three hours per week; an exceptional amount for a primary school.
The school has developed the programme in conjunction with the Royal Academy of Engineers and is exporting its model across the Gosport and Fareham Multi-Academy Trust including 4000 students at its secondary schools.
Lord Wilson School in neighbouring Fareham was also shortlisted for the prize.
Commenting Caroline said: "I offer my sincerest congratulations to Gomer.
This is a fantastic confirmation of a local innovation that gives the next generation the skills they need to succeed in the work place of the future.
It is fantastic to see primary school age pupils so enthusiastic for STEM subjects. Congratulations Gomer!"
