Pupils are being turned off science by unexciting teaching and a lack of practical experiments, according to this Ofsted report. It evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of science in primary and secondary schools and provides examples of schools where young scientists excel. It also discusses issues at the heart of science teaching today. Ofsted's report was published as ministers unveil a review of maths education in primary schools which is expected to call for more one-to-one tuition for pupils who are being left behind at an early age.
