Case Study - The Keys Federation | Award Nomination 2016

Joe Bradbury, Leader of Purpose/Class Teacher
The Keys Federation
 
Practice:
Joe pioneered and revolutionised the way in which STEM, particularly engineering, is delivered at the primary level. He recognised that the UK is currently suffering a huge decline in STEM graduates, with a worrying difference in girls’ and boys' uptake of STEM courses. This isn't because of an underachievement or disinterest on the girls' part, but due to the lack of female role models and often insufficient opportunities to engage girls in the subject early on. Thus, Joe decided to design a curriculum giving students the opportunity to engineer program robots, design healthcare products using 3D printing and chat to real scientists and engineers.
 
Impact:
One of the results of Joe’s work has been the high motivation of otherwise reluctant learners. Essentially, through the focus on STEM, pupils are equipped for the 21st Century and careers that are yet to be created. It opens doors for learners to achieve their true potential; unlocking their hidden skills and talents. Staff have been equally enthusiastic as they drive the way forward and work towards world class excellence for primary STEM provision.
