CPD and Networks

Science at Connect

Excitingly, this year we have a whole new Science Programme, designed specifically for our schools in order to best deliver practical and powerful improvements to Science in school.

The CAPS Network is designed and delivered by Nicola Beverley, renowned expert in Primary Science.

The structure of this programme lends itself to Subject leaders or Senior Leaders attending for the whole day, class teachers to attend relevant afternoon sessions. This is designed to be flexible and will enable schools to select staff members for each session who will be able to implement with the greatest impact on school. This may take the form of a ‘mix and match’ booking system, we are more than happy to accommodate.


An opportunity for Subject Leaders within school to:

Develop their professional understanding of science, including key aspects of subject knowledge
Review current science and assessment practice and plan next steps
Gain practical solutions, ideas and strategies that might be used to improve science outcomes for children in their own schools.

Please note: The subject leader sessions on the 3rd October, 28th November and 6th Febuary are FREE for Alliance Member Schools to attend as Science Network Cluster events. All other half days are charged at the standard rate of £50 per delegate (Alliance Membership discount is available).
