Primary Science Assessment (PLAN)

The PLAN primary science assessment resources – www.planassessment.com – have been produced to help schools plan and assess effectively the science National Curriculum (England).

Most of the resources are free to download from the PLAN website. Some (see documents below) are currently only available to ASE members. The CPD resources are available for sale on the PLAN website. 

The PLAN primary science assessment resources include:

These resources have been quality assured and moderated by the PLAN team of primary science consultants, so teachers and subject leaders can use them with confidence. 

We also recommend looking at the Teacher Assessment in Primary Science (TAPS) project from Bath Spa University.
