The Government believes that schools should offer students a broad range of academic subjects to the age of 16 and the English Baccalaureate (EBacc) promotes that aspiration. Hence the Department for Education (DfE) makes specific recommendations about the other subjects a student should study up to the age of 16. The DfE have clear guidance about the necessity for pupils who hold the potential to follow the EBacc route and achieve the EBacc qualification.
The EBacc qualification requires the pupil to study a Modern Foreign Language and a Humanity subject to examination. This will be the case for students following the Enhanced pathway.) Although the EBacc route is recommended for the majority, it is essential that all pupils (including those following the Standard or Supported pathway) select at least one EBacc subject.
The following videos on this page tell you everything you need to know about the EBacc subjects.
