This article summarises teachers’ views on their knowledge of Darwin and his work, issues they raised regarding with teaching Darwin-related activities, their resource and CPD requirements, and their ideas for promoting Darwin’s anniversary in 2009. They called for the provision of an umbrella website linking useful information, development of cross-curricular programmes, and strengthening relations with other schools. Practical problems were anticipated, such as lack of time and funding, and inadequate school grounds for experiments. CPD was considered necessary to address the lack of knowledge and confidence, but senior managers and advisors must be convinced that such a commitment is justified.
