"The attainment gap in science may not be as well-documented as the gap in English and maths, but it is just as pervasive." - EEF
Disruption to learning over the last two years has meant that the attainment gap is now greater than ever. Our students are struggling to recall and apply the vast amount of information they are expected to know in science and link these concepts together. We have students at completely different starting points, making a difficult puzzle for teachers to figure out where the gaps are and how to possibly start closing them.
How can we make the most of our curriculum to help students make links between topics, build on their prior knowledge and retain new information? How can we make the most of our limited lesson time without overloading students and overstretching teachers? How can we help them build practical and enquiry skills over time to develop their competency in science?

Watch a recording of our webinar 'The ‘catch-up’ science curriculum: How to build in opportunities for recovery of learning following Covid disruption' to see how our approach to curriculum, teaching and planning can help to diagnose and address the gaps that have resulted from missed learning in the pandemic.
