Hi, I’m looking for schools that have had a positive progress score in science. What have been the secrets of your success? We have average to above attainment, but progress is resolutely negative. Last year we utilised the following initiatives to try and turn the tide; 1. Putting the best teachers in with the “tough” middle classes. 2. Practising extended response questions every three weeks 3. After school interventions with small groups every week 4. 2 sets of formal mock exams, with follow up interventions 5. A focused workbook to tackle the required practicals and maths content 6. Finishing content before Easter and then having a department wide revision program 7. A third of the cohort came in during the Easter holidays for the morning 8. A Science tutor group was formed, for students with high targets and low attainment What else can we do in the future? What do places with positive progress do differently? Thanks.
