We are delighted to announce our school has been awarded a ‘Gilt’ Primary Science quality Mark (PSQM) thanks to the hard work of our staff and pupils- especially Mrs Bowman, our science coordinator.

This prestigious award ensures effective leadership of science,  enabling us to work together to share good practice and is supported by professional development led by local experts. It encourages teacher autonomy and innovation, while at the same time offering a clear framework for development in science subject leadership, teaching and learning. By achieving the PSQM we have demonstrated commitment and expertise in science teaching and leadership at Cuddington and Dinton School.

The Primary Science Quality Mark is led by the University of Hertfordshire, School of Education in collaboration with the Primary Science Teaching Trust.

Jane Turner, PSQM National Director said: “Gaining a Primary Science Quality Mark 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 scientific understanding and skills. Science subject leaders, their colleagues, head teachers, children, parents and governors should be very proud.”
