Term has begun, you’ve analysed your 2019 examination results and you know that there is a new Ofsted framework; but what next?


This workshop-based day will provide an opportunity to explore the implications for your science teaching.

The key themes for the sessions are:


Science in the new Ofsted framework; a common-sense approach

From research into action; translating the Education Endowment Foundation recommendations to transform secondary science

Lessons learnt from the 2019 GCSE exams; creating more effective science teaching

You will be able to:

  • discuss current good practice in secondary science
