Science policy

Discussion in 'Primary' started by thedancingqueen, Jan 29, 2011.

  1. I'm a trainee and have chosen science as a specialism. Last week, we were writing our own science policy for a made up school and looking at examples of science policies. I have never been shown a science policy on placement before and I must confess that I didn't know that schools had a written science policy. Does every school have a science policy and are there separate policies for each subject or just the core subjects? Thanks. In my previous two placement schools, the policies were on the website (behaviour, marking, health and safety policies etc) but like I've said, I've never seen a specific written policy for science or any other subject.

    I have a folder in my room with all school policies in it. So does every other teacher in my school. This has been the same in every school I've ever been in. Ask if it's not on their website, you'd be surprised at some of the things schools have policies on!
     
  3. Ok. Well I don't know why the university hasn't mentioned this before! I'm in my final year now. I've been shown a folder with school policies in in the past, but it only had like I said, the behaviour policy, marking policy, sen policy, health and safety policy etc in. I had no idea that there were specific subject policies otherwise I would've asked for them on previous placements. They would've been really helpful. I'm on placement soon so I'll definitely be asking politely if I can have a copy of them. Is there anything else I should be asking for? Have copies of the other policies which I've mentioned e.g. behaviour policy. Which other policies on top of this do schools tend to have? Anything I'd need?

    Depends on the school, tbh I haven't read half our ours but I know where they are if I need to!
