Gold Award for Science

8th September 2016

St Mary's School Awarded Primary Science Quality Mark - Level GOLD

We are very proud to announce that we have been awarded the GOLD Primary Science Quality Mark.

Primary Science Quality Awards celebrate a commitment to excellence in science teaching and learning. The Primary School Quality Mark scheme 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.

Jane Turner, PSQM National Director said: “Gaining a Primary Science Quality Award is a significant achievement for a school. The profile and quality of science teaching and learning 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 science understanding and skills. Science subject leaders, their colleagues, head teachers, children, parents and governors should be very proud.”
