Do the various official bodies taking responsibility want litter and recycling to be on the curriculum? They haven't explicitly said it should be, but I would struggle to relate it to old KS3 / GCSE exam questions or to APP. Do I think that it should be included - yes as part of encouraging responsible use of materials, and avoiding waste. However, with the removal of lifecycle assessments from 21st century GCSE, less official encouragement. Best wishes, P Victor Canning, the novelist and WW2 army officer said that patriots didn't drop litter.
