Schools Awarded Primary Science Quality Mark
WELL DONE MS. DAVIES
In May Primary Science Quality Awards have been awarded to 180 infant, junior, primary, middle and special schools to

2800 schools across the UK have achieved the award.
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

Primary Science Teaching Trust. It is supported by the Royal Society for Chemistry, the Ogden Trust and the Association for
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.”
