SCORE Practical Work in School Science Reports

This collection of reports was published by SCORE (Science Community Representing Education). The reports consider the importance of practical work in science education starting at Key Stage One and going all the way through to Post-16 levels. The reports include research into the issues faced by teachers and activities and experiments that can be used in the school classroom or laboratory.

The reports and guides are:

* Practical work in science: a report and proposal for a strategic framework
* Explore, discover, inspire: practical work in science (secondary)
* Explore, discover, inspire: practical work in primary science
* Assessment of practical work in science
* Getting practical: a framework for practical work in science
* Resourcing practical work
* Under the microscope: the state of the resourcing of practical science in primary schools in England
* Under the microscope: the state of the resourcing of practical science in secondary schools and sixth form colleges

Resourcing Practical Work

These two reports were published by SCORE (Science Community Representing Education), in response to two commissioned reports - Under the Microscope: the...

Under the Microscope: the State of Resourcing of Practical Science in Primary Schools

This resource, commissioned by SCORE (Science Community Representing Education) and published in April 2013, reports on the findings of research into the nature of resourcing and funding of practical science within primary schools in England. The aim was to identify and understand types of issues that might be...

Benchmarks for Secondary Schools

This document, published by SCORE, provides guidance to schools and colleges on the resourcing expectations of practical work in the sciences, to ensure all students receive a well-rounded science education.

It provides a comprehensive list of the levels of resourcing that SCORE considers necessary to carry...
