Home SLE CPD Teacher Training Registration Contact
Current Research and Development.

As a designated teaching school we already work with the Ogden Trust, a charitable trust that exists to promote the teaching and learning of physics. Our teaching school is a hub for a Primary Ogden Partnership and we have already secured funding to enable a ‘Phizz lab’ in a local primary school. We are advocates for sustainable CPD for staff to bring engaging science lower down into a child’s school career.

Our current aim in Research and Development is to replicate The Ogden Trust’s model of providing resources, practical materials and CPD for primary teachers,  which uses a cascading model in which we as a teaching school train one staff member from a school and they feedback to other members of staff.

We are currently trying to  secure funds  to develop a trial for a maximum of ten local primary schools initially,  to replicate that model in biology and chemistry for of the big ideas in each area of the primary curriculum. The aim is to carry out some robust action research to evaluate the impact of this CPD and then to expand on a greater scale.

Working with us as a STEM Partner or sponsor

We are currently looking for sponsors to help us fund this initial research project. We can offer advertising space on any promotional materials and on our teaching school website in return.

We are also seeking a STEM partner to support us in giving students a real life context of their STEM work, which we would envisage would involve a few visits per year and being involved in the delivery of some sessions to students.

We would greatly welcome your support with one or both of these areas. If this is something you feel that you would like to be involved in please contact myself at Woodrush High School on 01564 823777 or by email lhollingworth@woodrushhigh.worcs.sch.uk
