Leading Change in the Primary Science Curriculum
Waller, Nicky; Baker, Chris
Primary Science, n133 p5-7 May 2014
Nicky Waller and Chris Baker believe that change can be a good thing and explain how their training has helped others to adjust to the new science curriculum. In September 2013, teachers across England received the definitive version of the new primary curriculum "Leading Change in the Primary Science Curriculum." This course aimed to explore the implications and associated challenges of leading staff through change, and focused on the introduction of the new primary science curriculum. By describing in detail what people will see, hear, and feel in the improved situation, then vision and strategy are established and communicated. Establishing a team to trial the change is the next priority, to test new ideas on a smaller scale. Having shown the change to be worthwhile, leaders should ensure that the improvement is locked in by incorporating the change into their school's systems, such as schemes of learning and the way teachers and pupils behave. This embeds the change into the culture and ethos of the school.
