Suitable for: New and developing Primary Subject Leaders
A busy and high stakes curriculum, focused largely on English and Maths, may have distracted you and your school from considering outcomes for children in science in recent years. This circumstance was raised initially by Sir Michael Wilshaw (OfSTED HMCI’s Monthly Commentary – May 2016) as a matter of concern. He stated that science had become a ‘poor relation’ to English and Maths in many schools and that ‘the focus on the so-called ‘3 Rs’ had pushed other compulsory subjects, notably science…to the margins of the curriculum’. He urged schools to increase both the time committed to science and teacher expertise in teaching science, when seeking to improve outcomes for children.
