English Baccalaureate (EBacc)

NGA's position statement on English Baccalaureate (EBacc)

school-environment organised desk with bags and books

NGA thinks that all young people should be offered the opportunity to reach their full potential and the curriculum on offer should be sufficiently flexible to meet the needs of every child. This should include the full range of EBacc subjects.

We are concerned that the proposals to make the EBacc compulsory will steer all pupils down one educational pathway when another may be more appropriate to their needs. Therefore NGA does not support all pupils having to pursue the EBacc.
