PSQM Submission Review Round 10 Spring 2016 Additional points Rosie, you should not only feel proud of your staff, but also you should feel proud about the leadership you have provided and the obvious enthusiasm you have brought to this submission. This is a good clear silver submission with some strong elements of gold (such as regularly holding CPD for students on the SCITT training program, using Skype to talk to children across the world). You are in a good position to continue and extend your outreach work (such as writing an article for ASE’s Primary Science, contributing to an ASE conference) so that you can develop a gold submission when you resubmit in three years’ time. Good luck Please return to by 22nd April 2016
