This is my first time on mumsnet so I might sound a little shaky. I am a science teacher with 10 years experience teaching across the Croydon area. As a parent myself, I become frustrated by the lack of science at primary school when science is a core subject at GCSE. I am interested in finding out what other parents feel about this. I know many children really struggle to cope with science when they begin secondary school therefore I am setting up a tutoring agency to make this transition easier for children and help them get ahead in science. I have experienced first hand the struggles students face especially in year 9, I feel schools need to do more to provide support to those students who will be starting their GCSE's. I think the students who are going onto GCSE need more time revisiting a lot of year 7/8 topics before they begin their GCSE's so less time is spent trying to 'catch up'.
Please let me know your thoughts on this subject.
