We do this in three ways:
A Teaching and Learning Coach works directly with a Link School to develop a programme of external CPD for local networks.
A Lead School teacher acts as a School-based Physics Coach for 1 day a week, working with 5-10 Partner Schools.
A Link School teacher acts as a Link School Adviser, developing a programme of external CPD for local networks.
"Work done with KS2 teachers had raised the profile of the school in local primaries’ eyes and had positive results in pupil recruitment; and the work of the dept. in providing CPD to colleagues from other schools made the school a more attractive place to work for specialist physics teachers and so helped with retention and recruitment issues."
