The Primary Education Award is awarded for particularly noteworthy contributions to astronomy or geophysics by primary teachers e.g. by significantly improving attainment, innovative use of astronomy or geophysics in teaching, or engaging students in extra-curricular projects. The Award is normally presented at the next National Astronomy Meeting, or if this is not possible, at one of the Society’s A&G meetings. The prize for this award is £500 which will be payable to the school, to support the awardee's activities.
