Science

We are very excited to be taking this whole year to focus on developing science teaching, with a range of brand new training and opportunities for teachers and leaders. We hope many schools and partners will join us for these events and workshops.

Science Subject Leads

Good science subject leadership has a positive impact on the quality of science teaching. PA Science Leads will meet to explore a range of strategies to audit and lead science in our schools, and to identify and promote effective primary science. During the session we will discuss aspects of working scientifically, assessment, Ofsted updates and make plans for how we will continue to collaborate across the year.

Science Modelled Lessons

This is an excellent opportunity to see primary science teaching in action. Modelled lessons are taught by subject leads and lead practitioners across our schools. They involve a pre-lesson discussion, lesson observation and post lesson discussion and provide an opportunity for high quality reflection and professional development with peers.

Primary Science Conference

Join us for our first PA Science Conference. We will be inviting guest speakers and working in partnership with our local Science Learning Partnership to bring you a day of inspiring talks, workshops and activities linked to best practice in primary science teaching along with time to share ideas with colleagues and learn from each other. The day is aimed at science leaders, DHTs, AHTs or phase leaders with a focus on the “working scientifically” of the National Curriculum.

Our PA Maths conference last year was a sell out and places on this conference are limited. Full programme details will be available nearer the time. Early booking recommended.
