As one of the Education Endowment Foundation’s ‘promising projects’, TDTS is currently the focus of a national effectiveness re-trial from 2021-24, which aims to see how the positive impact of the TDTS approach can be maintained at scale via a train-the-trainer programme.
The main trial will take place during the 2022-23 academic year in the following regions in England:
- South West
- Staffordshire / West Midlands
- North East
- Lincolnshire / East Midlands
Ingol Community Primary School are taking part in the national effectiveness re-trail. Mrs Baron and Mrs Goulding will have 4.5 days of Science training and will be running the trail in Year 5 over the next two years. We are hoping this will be an effective way to teach science for all children and by 2024, the whole school will be accessing the support and resources.
ENTHUSE Partnerships inspire young people in STEM (science, technology including computing, engineering and mathematics) subjects and careers. They are groups of schools and/or colleges that work together to address local issues of low uptake or underachievement in STEM subjects.
Ingol Community Primary School are proud to announce that we are the lead school of a new 2 year Enthuse Partnership. Lead by Mrs Baron, a cluster of local schools will be accessing training and resources to raise standards in Primary Science and STEM across our community and schools.
