Hello
I have completed the form but would like to add a comment.
I read the primary magazine but wonder why there are two separate ones?
As a primary science leader I am interested in what secondaries and above are doing and find that networking, at events such as the Alumni and on my recent course with secondary school teachers and technicians, invaluable.
Do secondaries feel the same way?
Does one magazine not work?

Hello Sarah. Thanks for completing the survey and for your comment. Apologies for the delay in reply. We have two separate magazines as there are topics that are specific to one and not the other. Where there is cross over we will run the article in both, edited to make it more relevant to the main reader. We also have all issues online so that everyone can view which magazine they would like to. I will give it some more thought, as perhaps there is more we can do when talking about the articles in each magazine to draw people to articles which might be relevant across the phases. Thank you, Sarah
