Well being award

The school has received the following awards:

Well-being Award

In March 2021, we achieved the Wellbeing Award for Schools (WAS). This award will remain valid for the next three years. Developed in partnership with the National Children’s Bureau (NCB), the WAS has helped us prepare and equip ourselves to promote emotional wellbeing and positive mental health across the whole-school community.

Both NCB and St Anne’s Catholic Primary school share the vision that we have an education system where good emotional wellbeing and mental health are at the heart of the culture and ethos of our schools, so that pupils, with the support of their teachers, can build confidence and flourish.

Science Award

Primary Science Quality Mark

Over 400 Primary Science Quality Marks have been awarded to infant, junior, primary, middle and special schools this month to celebrate their commitment to excellence in science teaching and learning.  So far, since its national launch in 2010, over 5000 schools across the UK have achieved a prestigious Primary Science Quality Mark. 

Primary Science Quality Mark is a one-year school improvement programme for primary science, which provides professional development for new and experienced subject leaders each year. PSQM enables confident, knowledgeable, reflective leadership which results in an improvement in the way in which science is planned and taught across the whole school.

The Primary Science Quality Mark is led by the University of Hertfordshire 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 and climate change crisis have made everyone aware of the importance of science in our world.  Primary schools have an important role to ensure that children understand how science works and keeps us and our planet healthy and safe. Schools that have achieved a Primary Science Quality Mark have demonstrated a significant commitment to science teaching and learning. 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.”
