Merchant Taylors’ Junior Boys’ School is proud to have been awarded the Primary Science Quality Mark at silver level for its commitment to excellence in science teaching and learning.
The award is the result of over 12 months of hard work in which the school was rigorously reviewed under several areas of key criteria. Science co-ordinator Mrs Wynne, who led the process, said she is extremely proud to gain this nationally recognised status.
The examiners said: “Science is clearly valued and has a very high profile at Merchant Taylors’ Junior Boys’ School. Many congratulations to the whole school team on the outstanding achievement of your PSQM Silver Award. This is an impressive submission which meets the criteria comprehensively and I am happy to recommend it for an award at this level.
“The range and quality of the learning experiences are impressive, the impact upon pupils evident and the quality of provision clearly very good. It is clear that pupils in the school receive a high quality science education and this is as a result of astute and insightful planning, as well as a great deal of hard work. Well done.”
Jane Turner, PSQM national director said: “Gaining a Primary Science Quality Award 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 science understanding and skills. Science subject leaders, their colleagues, headteachers, children, parents and governors should be very proud”.
