Birstall Primary Academy have just received news that we have been accredited the Silver Primary Science Quality Mark (PQSM). Our thanks go to Mrs Jayde Weir who made this happen.

The Primary Science Quality Mark is an award scheme to enable primary schools across the UK to evaluate, strengthen and celebrate their science provision. Schools can achieve bronze, silver and gold awards.


  • The Primary Science Quality Mark has the following aims:
  • to raise the profile of science in primary schools
  • to provide schools with a framework and professional support for developing science leadership, teaching and learning
  • to celebrate excellence in primary science
  • to work with existing and facilitate new networks across the UK and wider to provide local support for primary science
  • to assemble and make accessible to the wider science education community a rich data base of current practice in primary science.
