PSQM Science


Fantastic news!!!! Boothroyd Primary Academy have just received news that we have been accredited the Gold Primary Science Quality Mark (PQSM) for the next three years. Well done to all staff involved especially Nikki Deane our Assistant Principal.

We have also just received news that the science exemplification materials which have been released include four pieces of work from Boothroyd.

We are exceptionally proud of this and would like to state how proud we are of Miss Deane who made this happen.
Just shows how we are moving forward!

Here is some information about the PQSM.

The Primary Science Quality Mark is an award scheme to enable primary schools across the UK to evaluate, strengthen and celebrate their science provision. Schools can achieve bronze, silver and gold awards.


The Primary Science Quality Mark has the following aims:

to raise the profile of science in primary schools

to provide schools with a framework and professional support for developing science leadership, teaching and learning

to celebrate excellence in primary science

to work with existing and facilitate new networks across the UK and wider to provide local support for primary science

to assemble and make accessible to the wider science education community a rich data base of current practice in primary science.

I’m sure work has already started on our Gold award application!
