Primary Science Quality Mark

The Primary Science Quality Mark (PSQM) is led by the Association for Science Education, the national network of Science Learning Centres and Barnet Local Authority and aims to develop and celebrate the quality of science teaching and learning in primary schools.

The PSQM offers schools the incentive and framework to invest time and effort into developing science; improving the quality of science teaching and learning, extending the breadth and richness of the science curriculum and stimulating teachers’ and children’s excitement in the subject.
