Code: 18ENG/077P Linking science and English for impact

Schools taking part in the programme have reported that the following has supported them in raising standards and in particular for reluctant writers:

- increased engagement, excitement and inspiration for pupils and teachers, reigniting a love of science
- a wider range of creative writing which both pupils and teachers are proud to share
- the development and support of oracy as a basis for learning

This programme is designed to support subject leaders to develop teaching and learning in the two subjects.

Both subject leaders will attend a days’ training, receive a half-day consultancy visit and participate in a reflective twilight session.

During the training day, leaders will consider how learning opportunities for both science and English can be maximised. The day will be full of engaging activities to explore creative ways of teaching science and English which maintain high standards.

Delegates will leave with a range of resources including an extensive book list, curriculum mapping document and lesson suggestions.

A focus / key question for the programme will be developed during the day against which impact can be evaluated.

The consultancy visit and twilight session will involve structured feedback to support self-evaluation, reflect on evidence of impact and identify next steps.

We will consider how to embed good practice across the school and ensure this is sustained.
