Primary Support

If you're a primary teacher, we're here as your local Science Learning Partnership 1767to support you and we share your dedication to raising young people’s engagement and achievement in STEM.

We offer primary CPD to develop science subject knowledge enhancement - to help develop conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics - and to aid understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through scientific enquiry.

We offer training for new and aspiring science subject leaders - Ofsted states there should be “at least one teacher” in every primary school who specialises in science, and that science leaders have dedicated leadership time. Our aim is to help you make the most of this.

We explore assessment and progression, with CPD looking at a range of AfL strategies effectively to promote children’s learning and make confident and reliable teacher assessment of learning in science.

We look at ways of weaving science into the curriculum through core subjects of maths and literacy - understanding key concepts of working with scientific data, learning to read and spell scientific vocabulary correctly and with confidence, using their growing word reading and spelling knowledge.

Professional development is important at every stage of your career. We run a well-established and successful continuing professional development (CPD) programme, with a variety of delivery methods to suit both your needs and the needs of your school. Our courses are developed by experienced subject experts and cover a range of topics spanning subject-specific knowledge and skills, pedagogy, leadership and more.
