Sphere Science is an associate member of CLEAPSS from whom we obtain safety advice for all our activities. The materials and equipment are quite safe when used as instructed. Risk assessments are available for all activities. The class teacher should always be present and is ultimately responsible for discipline. Workshops are offered on the understanding that the school accepts full liability for the safety of pupils and staff, and any other help arranged by the school.



We have full public liability cover.


Social Inclusion

Sphere Science operates a policy of social inclusion; please tell us of any specific needs before the workshops take place.
