    If MFL about to become obligatory at KS4 in your school or is it already? If so, is this as GCSE for all?

    No - heavy moral pressure is applied, that's all.

    Completely optional at my school. We are the best school in the area results wise - but the worst based on EBacc.

    Used to be blanket GCSE for all up until about 5 years ago, now it is compulsory (French or German, depending which they start with in Y7) for all those pupils deemed capable of following a wider range of GCSE subjects, rather than those needing to concentrate on getting 5 A*-Cs. Ebac figures have been weakened not by MFL but by poor take-up in History or Geography.
  6. We have always been compulsory. Our set 4s do an NVQ (though who knows for much longer) and only the SEN students who are taken out in Year 7 for extra literacy are the ones who don't do a language.
