I am not a Science teacher - I teach Maths. The questions I have below stem from being concerned about the direction of my school's KS4 Science offer which has particularly come to my attention as a tutor dealing with the options process. - What is statutory in terms of Science teaching during KS4? Is it just a case of pupils must be taught some Science whatever it is? - How much teaching time during KS4 is reasonable to deliver a double Science GCSE (is it called Core + Additional??)? - Ditto about teaching time for triple separate Science GCSEs? - In terms of KS3 NC levels, what level would a pupil need to be to access & cope with a double Science GCSE? Ditto triple separate? Thanks.
