Please find zipped and attached a recent OFSTED report on guidance in science. It makes some interesting points regarding Individual Advice and Guidance and the general curriculum issues faced by students and science teachers. It is worth a read. The word file contains a link to the web to see the report and a couple of quotes from it which say a great deal. During recent visits to Kent schools where I talked to Y11 and post 16 students, similar issues were raised. This was part of a fact finding exercise on my part with a view to writing a report based on Kent schools. This report will be published shortly. Watch this space.
Please find attached my May news update and associated files. This includes information on GCSE Spec changes, training coming up, enrichment opportunities, narrowing the gap materials and radiation protection issues.
