Doveridge Primary School recognised for excellence in science teaching

Doveridge Primary School has today been awarded the prestigious BRONZE Space Education Quality Mark, in recognition of its excellent work compared nationally.

UK schools and colleges receive the Space Education Quality Mark when they can show that they have significantly used the context of space in subjects, have worked with other organisations, shared resources and used space to enrich the curriculum.

The Space Education Quality Mark was created by ESERO-UK, which supports the space sector and teachers to open doors for young people from all backgrounds, by delivering inspiring world-class teaching in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects.

Alex Brown, STEM Support Programme Manager at STEM Learning, said:

“We are delighted to congratulate Doveridge Primary School on receiving the BRONZE Space Education Quality Mark. Each school and college who receives the Space Education Mark has demonstrated a real and ongoing commitment to excellent STEM education in their school. Doveridge Primary School is a great example of this.”

My congratulations to both the pupils and staff in school who are actively engaged in learning through Space themes. Our Space week during the Summer term was a big success, thank you. I look forward to continuing our Space learning into the future, Mrs Gadsby (Science subject Lead).

 

To help achieve a world-leading STEM education for all young people across the UK, teachers, teaching assistants or technicians from other primary or secondary schools and colleges, including independent schools can apply for the Space Education Quality Mark.
