Broadheath Primary School awarded Silver Primary Science Quality Mark

After 12 months of hard work, Broadheath Primary School has achieved the Silver Primary Science Quality Mark, the aim of which is to improve engagement in science across the whole school. Subject leaders Mrs Rogers and Mrs Heys have been working hard over the last 12 months with both staff and children to develop science principles using high quality resources, asking high quality scientific questions so that children are actively involved in science with more work taking place outdoors.

Primary Science Quality MarkWorking alongside other schools, being led by Manchester University, children from Broadheath Primary have had many opportunities for scientific exploration within school, where we have had visits from the RSPB, scientists working with Year 6, chicks hatching in our Reception classes and a farm visited us on the school field! Many classes have been on science related trips to the university, museums and Delamere forest.

Children have thoroughly enjoyed their work:

“We loved finding the answer to our question!”
Summer, Yr4;

“Wow! I never knew evolution could be so interesting!”
Kaide, Year 6

Primary Science Quality Awards have been awarded to 168 infant, junior, primary, middle and special schools to celebrate a commitment to excellence in science teaching and learning. So far, since its national launch in 2010, over 2300 schools across the UK have achieved the award.

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.”
