Chemistry Grant for Primary Training

In November 2021, Dr Kennedy (Head of Chemistry) secured a grant from the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Primary Science Empowerment Fund to deliver Earth Science CPD for Primary School Teachers. With the £580 grant, Miss Butcher and Dr Kennedy will help deliver bespoke training to local primary schools on teaching earth science, with a particular focus on working scientifically and links to Chemistry. The primary schools will then be given access to geological samples from across the world to utilise with their students, some of whom will come to Marling School when they transition to Year 7. Several primary schools have expressed an interest, and Miss Butcher and Dr Kennedy will work with as many schools as they can to offer this training.
