Creative Arts in EBacc
The Government has announced their plans for a new school league table which excludes creative subjects.
The new English Baccalaureate (or ‘EBacc’) would become a headline league table for schools, and would also be given a bigger role in Ofsted inspections according to plans announced in a speech on Tuesday (3 November) by the Secretary of State for Education Nicky Morgan. The plan is for at least 90% of pupils to take the EBacc, making it all but compulsory for many pupils.
This new EBacc requires pupils to study a minimum of seven GCSEs, but includes no creative subjects. This risks forcing art, dance, design, drama and music and other creative subjects out of schools.
