Our successful Primary Science CPD Programme is aimed at Primary Science Leads who are interested in developing practical classroom skills and techniques. The sessions are designed to increase primary teachers’ skills in delivering a range of practical activities in the classroom. Primary teachers will build confidence in Chemistry, Biology and Physics in three twilight sessions, with the aim of increasing their science expertise.

Teachers taking part in the Programme, which is delivered in partnership with the Gloucestershire and North Wiltshire Science Learning Partnership, also have the opportunity to bring pupils to Rich’s to use our well-equipped science labs and outdoor pond dipping facilities. By prior arrangement, we can provide minibus transport for pupils taking part, funded by sponsorship from EDF Energy. We are grateful to EDF Energy for their support of our Primary STEM activities.

Our Primary Science CPD Programme is delivered by experienced Rich’s teacher Joy Mee, who has been awarded the CPD Quality Mark by the National Stem Learning Network.
