Primary Science Quality Mark
Science Oxford manage a hub for the Primary Science Quality Mark in the region.
Primary Science Quality Mark is a year long CPD programme that helps schools to achieve a quality mark, whether science within the school has been a low profile for a while or the school wants to improve the provision further. It focuses on developing effective, confident science leadership for whole school impact on science teaching and learning.
With our expertise in CPD and pupil engagement, Science Oxford is well placed to provide the advice and support required to help schools achieve their chosen level of award.
There are three different Primary Science Quality Marks to ensure that all schools can achieve the accreditation. Primary Science Quality Marks are intended to be school appropriate and provide a framework for improvement and development in leadership and provision, whatever the starting point.
For each of the three Primary Science Quality Marks there are thirteen criteria that schools must meet by the end of the PSQM year. Subject leaders attend training throughout the year and receive on-line mentoring, to support them to meet the criteria in their schools.
As PSQM Hub Leaders, Science Oxford will ensure regular communications through a dedicated point of contact for each school. Additionally, our ability to draw on the expertise of all members of the education team enables us to provide tailored support aligned with the individual needs of schools in the hub.
Registration for the next round of PSQM is now open, schools should register their interest by 14th September for the Autumn round.
