By Liam Headd at

The hard work has paid off for the students at Broadheath Primary School with the award of a Silver Primary Science Quality Mark.

The aim of the award is to improve engagement in the subject across the whole school, and with the assistance of leaders Mrs Rogers and Mrs Heys, the school has been rewarded after a successful 12 months of work.

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 2,300 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,” she added.
