Primary Science Quality Mark

Inspiring the next generation of Scientists

As a school community we are extremely proud to have been awarded the Primary Science Quality Mark (Gilt standard) award for our work in Science. Through support from The Wellcome Trust and specialist advice from the University of Hertfordshire the year long continuing professional development programme enabled the school community to reflect and engage in outstanding Science practice. Our portfolio submission is below and showcases our achievements and next steps.


We are currently (during 2023 - 2024) renewing our PSQM Gilt award and working alongside other schools and our hub leader Dr Jo Montgomery.
