This video training focuses on science across the primary age range, including EYFS, and is ideal for science subject leaders, whether experienced in the role or newly appointed.

Since the demise of science SATs, the subject has fallen in prominence in many schools, as highlighted in recent Ofsted research. The video discusses the issues behind this and suggests possible solutions. It shares examples from schools where it has been addressed effectively and where science has been well-led by subject leaders with the support of SLT. Ideas to promote science and ensure full curriculum coverage are also shared.

The video discusses effective subject leader monitoring and evaluation, the implications for science, and how to ensure that subject leaders are having a positive impact on teaching and pupil outcomes in the subject.

The video:

  • Summarises the latest research in this area and the implications for primary schools.
  • Considers what schools can learn from the research and shares best practice in planning and teaching science, including timetabling.
  • Provides delegates ideas to use in your own setting to promote science and raise the profile of the subject.
  • Considers how monitoring and evaluation in science can be focused and developed to improve teaching and outcomes for pupils.
  • Discusses how to improve science teaching and learning across the school.
