Science Resources for Schools
in collaboration with Scottish Schools Education Research Centre (SSERC)
Edina is proud to support those schools in Scotland who are participating in Year 1 of SSERC's Primary Cluster Programme (PCP) in 2020-21. Since professional learning will be taking place online this year, Edina has funded SSERC directly to provide participating schools with hands-on science equipment resource kits to support the delivery of the three SSERC Meets. Resources will then be put to use with pupils in the classroom.
In addition, we are pleased to support up to 100 further schools participating in Year 2 of SSERC’s Primary Cluster Programme (previously the Primary Science Teaching Trust Sustain and Extend Programme (PSTT SEP)). Usually these take the form of easy-to-access £350 grants; this may change this year should face to face training sessions not be viable. A similar approach to the Year 1 scheme (above) may be adopted; we will update this information once a decision has been reached.
All we ask in return is that, once you have received and had a chance to use the equipment, you submit a short report to let us know the impact the grant has had on your school’s primary science teaching and learning.
No individual application forms are required for Year 1 schools during 2020-21 school year as SSERC are distributing resource kits directly to schools. A decision regarding Year 2 schools is still pending.
Schools are asked to provide a short report about their funded activities/items.
Please let us know if you would be willing to share information about your project with other schools. Photographs are particularly welcomed. Please state clearly if permission is given to the Edina Trust to use them on its website, Twitter, and/or in its newsletters. (Where permission is expressly given photographs will be used for no more than six years after which time they will be deleted.)
