We are delighted and incredibly proud to be one of the 250 that have been awarded the Primary Science Quality Mark which celebrates our commitment to excellence in science teaching and learning. This is a result of the hard work, dedication and cooperation from the whole school community.

The Primary School Quality Mark programme ensures effective leadership of science,
enables schools to work together to share good practice and is supported by professional
development led by local experts. It encourages teacher autonomy and innovation while at
the same time offering a clear framework for development in science subject leadership,
teaching and learning. Schools that achieve PSQM demonstrate commitment and expertise
in science leadership, teaching and learning.

The Primary Science Quality Mark is led by the University of Hertfordshire, Enterprise and
Business Development in collaboration with the Primary Science Teaching Trust. Associate Professor Jane Turner, PSQM National Director said: β€œThere was never a more important time for primary children to have a high-quality science education. The Coronavirus Pandemic has made everyone aware of the impact of science on our daily lives. Primary schools have an important role to ensure that children understand how science works and keeps us healthy and safe. Schools that have achieved a Primary Science Quality Mark have demonstrated a significant commitment to science teaching and learning, even at this challenging time for schools. The profile and quality of science in each awarded school is
very high. Children are engaging with great science both in and outside the classroom,
developing positive attitudes towards science as well as secure scientific understanding and
skills. Science subject leaders, their colleagues, head teachers, children, parents and governors should be very proud.”
