Bruche primary awarded for 'excellence in science teaching'

BRUCHE Primary School has become one of just 160 schools across the country to be recognised for its excellence in science.

The school, which is part of the Warrington Primary Academy Trust, was awarded a Primary Science Quality Mark (PSQM) for its teaching and learning in the subject.

Bruche Primary's executive headteacher, Chris Jones, said the award recognised the commitment and skill of Bruche’s teachers in the teaching of science.

"It’s an amazing accolade to be recognised through an award of this stature," he said.

"While the award assessment covered teaching and learning in the time before the pandemic, our staff and pupils have been as busy as ever on science projects over the past few months and we’re looking forward to continuing our science learning over the remaining term and beyond."

The PSQM is led by the University of Hertfordshire School of Education in collaboration with the Primary Science Teaching Trust.

Associate professor Jane Turner, PSQM national director, said: "The coronavirus pandemic has made everyone aware of the impact of science on our daily lives and primary schools have an important role to ensure that children understand how science works and keeps us healthy and safe.

"The profile and quality of science 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 scientific understanding and skills.

"Science subject leaders, their colleagues, headteachers, children, parents and governors should be very proud."
