About Environmental Science
Environmental science is an interdisciplinary field that spans from the physical sciences to the social sciences. It encompasses everything from physics, chemistry, biology and geography to resource management and conservation.
Here at Edgefield Primary School, environmental science is brought into the daily lives of our pupils through the implementation of activies throughout the year. Awareness and knowledge of our environment is a benefit that all pupils stand to gain from our programmes.
