Primary Science CPD Conference21 February 2018 13:00-17:00


Developing science subject leaders:

Good subject leadership has a positive impact on the quality of science teaching in primary schools. You will explore a range of strategies to audit and lead science in your school, understand your role more fully and be able to identify and promote effective primary science.

Working scientifically in the primary curriculum:

Effective teaching of scientific enquiry is central to developing children's ideas, skills, knowledge and understanding in science. You will be able to implement strategies for planning, resourcing and organising a range of types of enquiry in order to improve children's outcomes.

100% of participants at our 2017 Essex primary conference said that the session “would have an impact on my future practice”.
