Ogden Trust Science CPD for our teachers

Our new Ogden Trust Partnership has enabled over 40 teachers from our schools to received training so far this term. Our Primary CPD day was for year 3, year 5 and Science Leads on Forces, and our Ogden Co-ordinator Carole Kendrick took teachers through a wealth of practical investigations to do in the classroom. All primaries and our secondary Special School The Michael Tippett School, have received class resource boxes to accompany the work, with several hundred pounds worth of equipment to use. Our EYFS teachers also enjoyed a day of specialist practical training with an Ogden specialist and received a resource for weekly investigations for children throughout the year. Teachers’ feedback from the sessions was very positive and we shall now be ensuring that the training becomes meaningful learning for pupils in our schools.
