action
Bring science class size restrictions in England/Wales in line with Scotland/NI.
background
The importance of practical work in STEM subjects is at the forefront of the new GCSE and A-level reforms, but regrettably this is not currently supported by legislation to limit class sizes to 20, as is the case in Scotland/NI. In England and Wales science is not counted as a 'practical' subject.
additional details
Regulations do exist in Scotland, where no practical class (including science) may exceed 20 pupils [Schools Code, 1956]. Similarly, in Northern Ireland, Regulation 15 of the Secondary Schools Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1973 No 403 requires that practical class sizes shall not exceed 20 where the pupils are under instruction by one teacher. However, this only applies to technology classes in England and Wales, not science classes. Students do not get a fair deal from this inequality.
