There are two types of monitor: Printer Printers are a device that can output pictures, information and other documents on paper. They can be connected to a computer either wired or wirelessly to communicate information.
Curriculum enhancement STEM Club As well as actively engaging our students with practical activities during the lessons, we also run a STEM Club where students have the chance to take part in different scientific investigations. It is designed to have scientific experimentation at the forefront. Typically, students will carry out a series of planned investigations and communicate their findings to each other in a safe and stimulating environment.
Our students are also provided with opportunities to enter nationwide competitions to exercise their abilities in Scientific research.
STEM Club students also have access to the pond area and the allotments as part of their activities program. Dates of the drop-in sessions will be posted on notice boards throughout the Science department.
Year 11 revision sessions Science revision sessions for year 11 are run on a two-week timetable in accordance with school policy. During these times, students will consolidate their learning from lessons. Heavy weighting will be placed on practising exam technique and use of science terminology.
Competitions Competitions will be held fortnightly across the department and between classes. Every two weeks, a question or a task will be released and students enter the competition to win prizes. All students from all Key Stages are invited to take part.
Health and Safety — Summary Guidelines All teachers, technicians and support staff Teachers and technicians have a general duty to take reasonable care for the health and safety of themselves, of other members of staff and of students.
They have specific duties: They have a duty to report to local management any failure of equipment that has a health and safety function. Staff practice must set a good example to students and be consistent with student laboratory rules, e. Laboratories must be left safe. Special arrangements must be made for equipment which has to be left running overnight and hazardous equipment which has to be left out.
In general, all gas taps should be completely turned off and all mains operated apparatus switched off. At the end of the day, if practicable, gas should also be turned off at the laboratory main gas cock and electricity at the laboratory main switch.
Eating, drinking and the application of cosmetics should not take place in laboratories, storage areas or preparation rooms unless an area in which it is safe to do so has been created.
Students should not be allowed to drink from water bottles. When staff are alone in the Science department, nothing should be done which could lead to an accident requiring remedial measures.
A teacher or technician must assess risks very carefully before conducting any practical operation in such circumstances. In general, students must not be left unsupervised in a laboratory. Staff needing to leave a class briefly must assess the risks of doing so, perhaps arranging for temporary supervision by a neighbouring member of staff.
Special arrangements may be needed for senior students doing project work, depending on the hazards involved, e. Science laboratories, preparation rooms and stores must be locked by staff when not in use. Students must never be allowed into preparation rooms.
Laboratories must be available for teacher-supervised club activities only by special arrangement. Teachers At the beginning of each school year, teachers must make sure that their classes have copies of the student laboratory rules and issue them if necessary.The BTEC ICT unit 2 Technology Systems course on KnowItAll Ninja is an excellent revision tool for preparing for your onscreen tests.
