In June 2020, Royal Park were delighted to be awarded the Primary Science Quality Mark - GILT award. Primary Science Quality Marks have been awarded to 160 infant, junior, primary, middle and special schools to celebrate a commitment to excellence in science teaching and learning. So far, since its national launch in 2010, over 4000 schools across the UK have achieved a prestigious Primary Science Quality Mark.
The Primary School Quality Mark programme ensures effective leadership of science,
enables schools to work together to share good practice and is supported by professional
development led by local experts. It encourages teacher autonomy and innovation while at
the same time offering a clear framework for development in science subject leadership,
teaching and learning. Schools that achieve PSQM demonstrate commitment and expertise
in science leadership, teaching and learning.
