primary science gold lay

The school has just received notification that once again it has been awarded the Primary Science Gold Mark , this is the highest Primary Science Quality Mark achievable for its curriculum, provision and teaching of science.

Mrs Barton took the lead in the reapplication and we must congratulate her and all the other staff who teach science in school. The feedback from the awarding council sums up the strength of the award.

"This is a really, really exciting school with lots of great science experiences. It is up to date, forward thinking, addressing current issues and providing an education setting that I would be more than happy for my own children to experience, full of curiosity and with a strong questioning ethos. With all the community work you have going on, you have truly hit the Gold standard, I can see that you have plenty going on and wish you luck in the future.  Congratulations on your award."  PSQM National Director
