Leading and developing an inclusive primary science curriculum for pupils with SEND NY043 / A20

Start date

2 Days
National STEM Learning Centre, Siwards Way, York YO10 5DD How to find us


Teaching children with any degree of SEND can be challenging within any classroom. We have developed a two day programme aimed specifically at primary teachers which will cover aspects of differentiation and adapting practical tasks for children of all abilities.

Over the two days we will focus on ways to include all children in science activities and ways to differentiate tasks to ensure every child can take an active part in the learning. There will be sessions looking at how to work closely with parents, teaching assistants and other adults within the classroom and also how taking your class outside can help to develop positive behaviours for some of our children.

Sessions led by Sally Spicer, Teaching Fellow at the Centre for Professional Education, Warwick University, will look at sensory difficulties and how to organise differentiated investigations.

This is a residential course, fees include meals and accommodation for the duration of the course.
