In April 2023, our school achieved The Primary Science Quality Mark (PSQM).
Schools achieve a Primary Science Quality Mark following a rigorous process of self–evaluation, supported by compulsory CPD and expert mentoring.
The PSQM requires the science subject leader to:
- audit existing provision in science and agree appropriate quality mark to work towards
- create and implement an action plan to develop all aspects of science teaching and learning
- complete a reflective submission with key pieces of evidence to demonstrate the impact of science leadership in the school.

RSPB Wild Challenge
Our school science club has successfully completed and achieved the Bronze award for the RSPB Wild Challenge. The Wild Challenge award is a wide variety of activities for schools to help engage children with nature and provide practical learning opportunities. Taking part in this award has enabled the children to apply curriculum knowledge and skills, as well as supporting the development of resilience and teamwork.
