Science and design and technology at key stage 2

The report focuses on standards, provision and leadership in the National Curriculum subjects of science and design and technology at key stage 2 in primary schools in Wales. For this survey, Estyn inspectors visited or interviewed by telephone a broad range of primary schools across Wales, taking into account: school size, geographical location, the proportion of pupils eligible for free school meals, and linguistic and religious characteristics. Inspectors observed lessons, interviewed pupils, teachers and school leaders, and scrutinised planning and pupils’ work. In addition, inspectors considered a wide range of primary school inspection evidence. The report’s findings will help to inform the development of the ‘science and technology’ Area of Learning and Experience of the new curriculum. Read more >
