Motion #47
Carried
  • Devon

THAT Conference is concerned about the perceived demotion of science as a core subject in schools, the introduction of flawed statutory assessment and the number of students unable to make the jump between the primary science curriculum and the secondary science curriculum.

Conference therefore calls upon the Executive Committee to:

(i) highlight good skills-based learning within the science curriculum in primary schools

(ii) advocate the need for a clear skills-based curriculum for science in KS3 that builds on the primary curriculum.
