Primary Science Quality Mark

13 July 2020 (by admin)

Hey with Zion has been awarded the University of Hertfordshire's Primary Science Quality Mark again. We first won it in 2016 and are delighted to have renewed it until 2023.

There are about 14000 primary schools in England and only 160 schools- i.e. little more than 1% of schools have won it this year.
Jane Turner, Associate Professor and Director of PSQM, said:
“There 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.”
