Huge Congratulations and thanks go to our Science Lead, Katrina Anderson, who has led staff and children in accomplishing the Space Education Quality Mark, which follows on from the PSQM last year and reinforces the schools commitment to high quality science provision. The award is in recognition of the school’s 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 Silver Springs Primary Academy on receiving the SILVER 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. Silver Springs is a great example of this.”
