Providing subject leaders with the skills to drive science forward in their schools, increasing their capacity to influence and inspire others, as well as the opportunity to network with other science leaders.
This session includes:
• Essential updates: Including the implications of OfSTED’s current focus on science within the curriculum (‘Intention and substance’ report – February 2019), where concerns over science and its position within schools’ curriculum was raised:
‘School leaders need to ensure that teachers have deep subject knowledge and to consider what curriculum design really involves in science. We will carry out further investigations on the primary science curriculum later this year.’
This and a new OfSTED framework from September 2019, will be crucial to consider.
• Supporting subject knowledge development – resources to utilise and practical ideas to try out in school.
• A chance to reflect and share.
• Subject Leader professional development – building the skills you need to be an effective leader of science in your school.
