We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded Primary Science Quality Mark.
In April 2021 334 Primary Science Quality Marks have been awarded to infant, junior, primary, middle and special schools to celebrate their commitment to excellence in science teaching and learning. So far, since its national launch in 2010, over 4000 schools across the UK have achieved a prestigious Primary Science Quality Mark.
The Primary School Quality Mark programme ensures effective leadership of science, enables schools to work together to share good practice and is supported by professional development led by local experts. It encourages teacher autonomy and innovation while at the same time offering a clear framework for development in science subject leadership, teaching and learning. Schools that achieve PSQM demonstrate commitment and expertise in science leadership, teaching and learning.
The Primary Science Quality Mark 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: “There was never a more important time for primary children to have a high-quality science education. The Coronavirus Pandemic has made everyone aware of the impact of science on our daily lives. Primary schools have an important role to ensure that children understand how science works and keeps us healthy and safe. Schools that have achieved a Primary Science Quality
Mark have demonstrated a significant commitment to science teaching and learning, even at this challenging time for schools. 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, head teachers, children, parents and governors should be very proud.”

Staffordshire are looking to set up a brand new Parent Carer Forum this year. Attached is a letter advertising some engagement events that are to take place later this month.Fri 08 Jan 2021
Dear parents and carers,
Do you have a child with a special need or a disability?
Would you like to be involved in council decisions and sharing your thoughts on processes that involve your children? (If so, read on…)
Staffordshire Local area (this includes the council and the clinical commissioning groups) are committed to supporting our parents and carers. But we understand that we need to do more. Which is why we’re setting up a brand-new parent / carer forum and we want you to be involved.
A forum, put simply, is a meeting or group. In this case, one that will meet regularly to discuss the views of parents / carers and will be heard in a more formal way. This forum will thenwork together with council staff to make positive changes involving your children who have a special need or disability. Staffordshire is made up of eight different districts / areas and we want a parent / carer forum in each.
Helping us to do this, is an organisation called ‘CONTACT’(you might know them as ‘Contact a Family’). They have worked with other councils do something similar and its worked really well. We feel that by setting up these meetings(forums), it will help us to build even stronger structures and practices for our young people and will make sure parents have a voice. Parents and carers should be involved inshaping the processes that involve their children – so let’smake it happen!
If you would like to find out more … please come along to one of our information events to be held on the following dates (we appreciate that parents/carers have school runs and work commitments too! – So, we’ve tried to cater for everyone with the times suggested). If you can’t attend the meeting that’s linked to your local area, just attend any that suits you. The information will be the same at each event.
• Cannock and Lichfield: Thursday 21st January 2021, 10:00am – 12:00pm
• Stafford and South Staffs: Thursday 21st January 2021, 18:00pm – 20:00pm
• Newcastle and Moorlands: Wednesday 27th January 2021, 12:30pm – 14:30pm
• East Staffs and Tamworth: Friday 29th January 2021, 10:00am – 12:00pm
For more information and to find out how you can be involved, please contact Catherine Ratcliffe on Catherine.firstname.lastname@example.org who will send you the link to the Zoom meeting* (you don’t even have to move from your front room!). There is no pressure to speak if you don’t want to (but please feel free to do so if you feel comfortable enough). And whilst we know that it can be scary going along to any sort of meeting, all you have to dofor now is turn up… and we will do the rest. So, have yourself a cuppa ready and tune in! This is an exciting opportunity for you to work with us at the Staffordshire local area. (We reallyhope you can make it).
(*zoom is an app that is a free way of meeting up with people from your own home! It’s really easy to download and works on most laptops, tablets and phones.

Schools will be closed with immediate effect until at least February half-term.
On-line remote learning will be available for all classes from tomorrow.
Please give us time to organise and plan for the next few days.
If you think you are a key worker please send through key documents to support your key worker status NO LATER than 12pm tomorrow (Tuesday) to email@example.com so that we can plan ready to take key worker and vulnerable children only from Wednesday 6th January 2021.
A letter will be sent via marvellous me to key workers and vulnerable children with further details tomorrow afternoon so that you are all aware of timings of bubbles etc and how school will operate in the coming weeks. We must continue to remain in our current bubbles and under no circumstances are we allowed to mix!
As you can imagine, all of the above will take time to organise in a very short space of time!
Thank you for your continued support and patience to enable us to sort ourselves out.
Mrs Banks and the Flash Ley team
