Have you heard of Primary Science Quality Mark? PSQM is a programme of science development for subject leaders that lasts for a year but gives them access to resources and training for 3 years. 

The Education endowment fund (EEF) is recruiting for the largest primary Science trial to start in September and the costs of the programme will be met by the EEF grant. 

Why should you do PSQM? 

  • Work with other subject leaders sharing great practice
  • Undertake supported CPD with mentors who work with you and your school for a year
  • High quality resources and a virtual learning environment to support your science learning
  • Opportunity to demonstrate to your stakeholders how good science is in your school
  • It is open to new Subject leaders (AWARD), experienced leaders(Gilt) and those who work with other schools (outreach).
  •  It is professionally and personally fulfilling to raise the profile of science in your school.

As Shaun Wingrove said as he took his school from dull to shiny:

"I can’t recommend PSQM enough – it’s just fantastic. It has a way of producing results in such a supportive and constructive way. You never feel judged or scrutinised – it’s just helpful. I have met amazing and inspiring people and it has opened up pathways I never knew existed. It’s enabled the transformation of science at my school"
