How well resourced are practical science lessons in UK schools?Friday 23 November, 2012
Education policy advisory partnership SCORE invites participation in in its survey of resources available for practical science education in UK Schools.
SCORE (which includes the Association for Science Education, the Royal Society, the Institute of Physics, the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Society for Biology) aims to improve science education in UK schools and colleges by supporting the development and implementation of effective education policy.
Previously it has looked into areas such as the pace and transparency of National Curriculum review processes, exam administration and the National Curriculum programme of study for science at Key Stages 1 and 2.
However, now SCORE is investigating whether schools and colleges have the resources they need to provide high-quality practical science education. Initial findings suggest that there may be significant issues and inequalities, but to reveal the true situation the survey requires input from as many schools as possible.
SCORE invites all those involved in resourcing science – head teachers, senior leadership teams, heads of science, science teachers and science technicians - from primary and secondary schools and colleges to fill in their online survey and help build up a picture of resourcing across the country.
