How does Science for Life work?
What is Science for Life, and how will it work?
Science for Life (SfL) is a collaborative school development project involving 12 primary and secondary schools across the borough of Islington in London. SfL is led by Carole Kenrick, Scientist in Residence at Gillespie Primary School, with support from the Institute of Physics and funding from the Dame Alice Owen Foundation. We are supporting each other to meet a common goal: to develop excellent science knowledge and attitudes among the children we teach.
There are two strands to the project: STRAND A is a Professional Learning Community with a joint action plan informed by our school priorities and STRAND B offers high-quality science CPD and curriculum-linked resources for every school. Finally, we are also sharing resources within the project and with other schools through this website. You can find out more about the strands and how each one works below.
