Ideas to raise attainment from real teachers

Ian Powell, Head of Science , John Ferneley College
Lighting the fire of excitement for Science – for students and teachers – to secure outstanding progress
In the current climate of accountability of outcomes at all levels, more and more schools are adopting rigorous systems of teaching, assessment and feedback. More and more these practices are adding additional workload and stress on teachers, and not producing the outcomes that are intended. I want to offer a different approach, one we adopt in the school I work in. Giving autonomy to our leaders and teaching teams, ensuring the wellbeing of staff is top priority, building a culture of excellence amongst our teachers and students, and securing the very best outcomes for the young people in our community. We have successfully reignited a passion for science, you can too.
