14 Pilot schools’ challenges with Element C For a school that is struggling – it looks like the icing on the cake. Improving test and exam results must come first Having time to get to grips with it Can look rather nebulous, especially the performance measures It leaves a lot to be decided by the individual school.

15 Outline of my talk 1.What do parents want from their child’s school? 2.The Wellcome Recommended Code of Governance 3.High level performance indicators (Element C of the Code) 4.Lucy Legard: a case study from North Yorkshire 5.Work in progress: benchmarks for science in a school 6.Questions and discussion

16 How does science education in your school compare to the rest of the UK? Guideline questions for school governors

17 Guideline questions on science education A set of questions to help governors think about science education in their school. Several versions: Secondary Primary Northern Ireland Wales Scotland (eventually!) Possibly one for parents and pupils…

18 Five key areas Secondary schools Teaching and teachers Results Choices Facilities Extracurricular

19 Choices Triple science GCSE available? Gender breakdown of science A levels? Choices of science at A level? Study science at university? Vocational courses? Careers advice?

20 The question Each question will show: Why asking that question is important What the national benchmark is How the school can improve

21 Example What proportion of pupils chooses to continue with the three sciences (physics, chemistry and biology) and maths at A level?

22 Why is this important? Pupils more likely to choose a subject for A level if it has been well taught. Indicator for good teaching in the school. A level is the gateway to university, and then to employment.

23 National benchmarks

24 Headlines 14% A level students study biology. 11% students study chemistry. 8% students study physics.

25 Gender breakdown 54% of A levels were taken by female students. However, 20% of physics A levels were taken by girls. 48% of chemistry A levels were taken by girls. 57% of biology A levels were taken by girls. 39% of maths A levels were taken by girls.

26 How can your school improve? Some questions you might ask: Do our teachers have up to date subject knowledge and teaching skills? Are they enthusiastic? Are we spending too much time preparing for GCSE exams? Are we doing enough interesting practical work?
