Guidance on how to match an existing scheme to the renewed Framework for secondary science. This example uses the QCA scheme of work 2000, Unit 7e – Acids and alkalis, and shows the audit process for a department taking all of the objectives in the existing scheme and linking them with the overarching yearly learning objectives in the renewed Framework appropriate for a particular year group.

Secondary science learning objectives, which are organised across Years 7 to 11. The learning objectives show five strands of development and set out a minimum expectation for the progression in learning of most pupils. You can use the learning objectives to plan sequences of lessons that cluster objectives together into powerful learning experiences. Associated assessment criteria for Assessing Pupils' Progress (APP), amplification of yearly objectives, strategies for progression and rich questions can also be viewed where relevant.
