Busby Primary scoops science gold award

Primary Science Quality Mark offers schools the incentive and framework to invest time and effort into all aspects of science.

Busby Primary (STEM Week 2017)

Busby Primary School has received a Primary Science Quality Mark at gold level for the second time.

The Primary Science Quality Mark vision is for a sustainable programme to enable primary schools to evaluate, strengthen and celebrate their science provision. The scheme is supported by professional development led by local experts and enables schools to share good practice.

The Gold quality mark was awarded following the hard work of the staff to deliver experiences that promote children's enthusiasm through high quality learning events, including a residential science experience to Edinburgh. Pupils also enjoyed a Star Wars theme STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) week, learning from scientists, engineers, professors, geologists and parents on their area of expertise.

As a school we are absolutely delighted to receive this award as recognition for the high quality learning experiences the children engage in at Busby. STEM plays an important role in equipping our young people to function in a rapidly developing world and we are pleased that the assessors felt that this aspect was strong at Busby.
Mark Weir - Acting Head Teacher at Busby Primary

The Primary Science Quality Mark 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.
