Limit Less Inclusive Schools Month kicks off
1 March 2023
In March, we’re focusing on helping physics teachers to make schools inclusive and equitable for all students with new specialist teaching resources and events.
Today we’re kicking off Limit Less Inclusive Schools Month – part of the Limit Less campaign to inspire more young people to change the world and fulfil their potential by doing physics.
Throughout March, we’ll be reaching out to physics teachers – and those who train physics teachers – across the UK and Ireland to help them champion inclusive teaching. We want to support them to remove the barriers that still exist for too many young people in education.
To help, we’ve created a special booklet, Top Tips for Inclusive Science Teaching, which offers practical advice on making teaching, interactions and classrooms as inclusive as possible. There’s also an accompanying Inclusive Science Teaching poster.
These, along with a host of other free teaching resources and careers guidance, can be found at iop.org/InclusiveResources.
We’re also publishing a special inclusive teaching edition of our Classroom Physics magazine, which will go out to all affiliated schools in the UK and Ireland later this month.
We’re collaborating with STEM Learning on events for physics teachers, where we’ll be running workshops on inclusive teaching – as well as running our own Physics Central event: Tips for Inclusive Science Teaching.
Throughout the month, we’ll be calling on teachers to sign up to the Limit Less manifesto for change and asking them to encourage their head teachers, principals, managers or responsible members of the senior leadership team to follow suit.
With their support, we can show our politicians the widespread support that exists for improving equity and inclusion across the education sector.
There will be more Limit Less Inclusive Schools Month announcements to come in March – watch this space…
