This conference is an ideal opportunity to develop your subject knowledge and skills whilst exploring the most effective strategies for assessment and elicitation in primary science. Featuring a keynote address Stuart Naylor, director of national projects including Concept Cartoons and Active Assessment, the day will consist of sessions based around three main strands as follows:

  1. active and effective assessment; making a difference in your classroom
  2. enhancing subject knowledge (evolution and Earth in space)
  3. working scientifically; from fair testing to scientific enquiry

To ensure that the conference meets participants' needs you will be asked to book for individual sessions once a programme has been formalised. You will receive additional instructions closer to the conference date. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis so please ensure that the email address you provide is one to which you have regular access rather than a generic school email.


You will be able to:

  • re-visit and develop new approaches to assessment in science across the school to ensure continuity and progression
  • develop increased knowledge of progression in scientific enquiry
  • gain confidence in you subject knowledge and understanding
  • plan a meaningful curriculum which supports progression and deepen understanding
  • plan for science lessons with a creative approach
