Welcome to the home page of the National Primary Science Survey (England). The purpose of the National Primary Science Survey is to obtain information concerning perceptions of National Curriculum science from primary head teachers, science co-ordinators and class teachers across the country. This information will be used to inform curriculum debate and policy at the highest level and to identify what steps might be taken to better science education provision. The project itself, while funded by the School of Culture, Education and Innovation at Bishop Grosseteste University, is a collaborative venture involving the universities of Hull, Sheffield Hallam, Liverpool Hope, Bath Spa and Exeter. The National Primary Science Survey is directed by Professor John G. Sharp. The research project worker attached to the project is Rebecca Hopkin.
