DORMER House School Science department in Moreton-in-Marsh has been awarded the Gold Standard Primary Science Quality Mark, at a formal ceremony in Birmingham. This award celebrates a commitment to excellence in science teaching and learning.
Dormer’s talented young scientists have worked hard to gain this award with a range of extra-curricular science activities, science competitions, a science week as well as hosting events for other schools such as a physics masterclass and an astronomy evening.
Head mistress, Alison Thomas, thanked the science team of teachers and in particular science lead, Greg Stotesbury for providing “the very best in primary science teaching” and stated that the school was “very proud and thrilled with this latest accolade.”
The Primary Science Quality Mark (PSQM) is led by the University of Hertfordshire School of Education in partnership with the Primary Science Teaching Trust. It is supported by the Royal Society for Chemistry, the Ogden Trust and the Association for Science Education. 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.”
