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

Focusing on aspects of differentiation and adapting practical tasks for children of all abilities. Sessions will be led by leaders in special needs education.


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

Over the three 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.


You will be able to:

  • enhance your understanding of the issues which face pupils who are working below age-related expectations or have other challenges that affect their ability to access the curriculum
  • develop techniques to support children in primary STEM lessons
  • recognise and select from highly effective strategies for teaching and learning in primary science, in areas such as differentiation, assessment, behaviour and resource management
  • action plan changes in your practice resulting from personalised learning on this course
