GCSE science guide ignores biology, chemistry and physics

Education chiefs have issued a guide to teaching science that fails to mention biology, chemistry or physics.

The traditional subjects are instead called “organisms and health”, “chemical and material behaviour” and “environment, Earth and universe”.

The six-page GCSE curriculum document was uncovered by the Tories. Shadow schools minister accused the Government of trying to “dumb down” science teaching.

He said: "It is crazy that the science curriculum for 16-year-olds does not even mention the words physics, chemistry or biology.

"The Government has devalued the curriculum and exam system. Private schools are shifting to international exams.

"We will make the curriculum and exam system globally respected - as it used to be."

The guide was issued to teachers by the Qualifications and Curriculum Development Authority, according to The Sun.

It says pupils should be taught the "knowledge, skills and understanding of how science works.”

A QCDA spokeswoman said physics, chemistry and biology are not being ignored.

She said: "QCDA develops the science curriculum, working closely with schools, the science community and employers.

"The curriculum covers the broad areas of modern science and the different paths young people can follow, while providing a thorough grounding in chemistry, physics and biology."
