It also advocates for greater recognition of the breadth of 'science', the role of public engagement, and the value of policy-relevant research.

Evidence submitted to the Primary Review (Rose Review)

Our evidence submission advocates for the role of geography in education, and the timetabled provision of geography in primary schools.
