Hey with Zion Primary School

Hey with Zion has been awarded a silver Primary Science Quality Mark.

We are delighted with this, as it is something which we set out to work towards twelve months ago. The award is one thing, but the main benefit is the improvement in our Science teaching and learning brought on by working together with experts in the field. We plan to build upon this award in our forthcoming work with Oldham Regional Science Centre and the Ogden Trust.

The Primary Science Quality Mark is led by the University of Hertfordshire School of Education in partnership with the Primary Science Teaching Trust. It is supported by the Royal Society for Chemistry, the Ogden Trust and the Association for Science Education.

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.”
