This programme, provided jointly by West Somerset Research School and the Science Learning Partnership at SPTS, provides an in-depth exploration of the seven accessible recommendations made in the EEF’s Improving Secondary Science Guidance Report, published in 2018.
Each session helps practitioners understand and use the recommendations in effective ways to improve attainment in science and science teaching.

We are excited to be once again working with literacy consultant Tony Whatmuff on this two day programme to ensure that every child develops expert reading comprehension skills. We will particularly be looking at key points in their primary reading journey when this can become more challenging such as when they move into year 2 (and we often see a dip in KS1 reading in comparison to Y1 phonics), the transition into lower and then upper KS2 when text difficulty increases.
This programme is open to both teachers and TAs and will give them both the research knowledge and the practical skills to make a difference to children's comprehension skills in your school.

This course is ideal for teachers who want to gain a greater understanding of the current expectations around assessment and children’s progress in science.
It can be taken as a two-day course, or day 1 as a stand alone day.
Day 1: Where are we now? A national update on the current picture of assessment. A look at in-school formative assessment and what this looks like in terms of science. A consideration of how TAPS can support a formative assessment approach culminating in summative judgements being made.
Day 2: an in-depth focus on in-school summative assessment and how the PLAN materials can support making summative judgements. How the teacher assessment frameworks needs to be a whole school issue and how to moderate work to ensure the reliability of judgments. A look at nationally standardised summative assessments and how these can be used formatively in the classroom.
A two-day course: 13 February & 2 March 2020.
Cost: £190.00 Or day 1 only: 13 February 2020 – £95.00
