Session Overview:

Following the Improving Secondary Science guidance report in 2018, its primary counter part has been long awaited.  This session introduces the new Primary Science Guidance report and aims to help teachers to understand how to use the evidence to identify most effective ways to improve science teaching and outcomes in their schools.

In this session, we aim to support schools to engage with the recent publication to develop a robust knowledge of the evidence based to primary science. In addition, the session will explore some practical examples and strategies that teachers can use to make better-informed decisions about how to best support pupils' knowledge in science and avoid misconceptions in the subject.


Simon Cox is director of the Blackpool Research School. Research Schools were set up by the EEF and aim to share what they know about putting evidence into practice and support schools to make better use of evidence to inform their teaching and learning. Simon is an experienced secondary maths teacher and school leader, and regularly speaks at conferences and delivers training for schools about evidence-informed teaching.
