Register your interest for the Focus4TAPS trial
**Registration for this project stopped at the end of April 2019. However, you can still register interest below to be kept informed about the roll out of the primary science training**
Please complete this form to register your interest for the Focus4TAPS randomised control trial. Focus4TAPS is a one-year package of training and resources delivered by Bath Spa University which aims to support teaching, learning and assessment in primary science. The Education Endowment Foundation and the Wellcome Trust are funding an independent evaluation by the UCL Institute of Education, which will take the form of a randomised control trial, focusing on the attainment and attitudes of Year 5 pupils. The Year 5 teacher and the Science Subject Leader will attend CPD days across 2019-20.
We are looking to recruit state-funded schools in the following areas: Birmingham/Coventry, Swindon, Reading, NW London (Middlesex), Somerset (driveable to Taunton) and the Devon/Cornwall border (driveable to Plymouth). Once you have completed the form, we will be in touch with further information about the trial.
If you join the trial, your school will be randomly assigned to either receive the Focus4TAPS programme (the intervention group) or to carry on as normal (the control group) during the 2019-20 academic year.
