    Mfl here is compulsory for all bar the statemented so my worries are slightly different as I am not sure that 30% or more will be able to cope at all with what is being proposed on paper. We shall have to wait and see whaty the reality of the situation is.

    If anything the new GCSE has merely served to undermine the position of MFL in our school. It was already considered a difficult subject but now...

    My school has decided this year to stop MFL being compulsory for all.

    But it's not optional - Y8 have to pick a language as an option, then some individuals will be pulled from languages to do extra English and Maths. It has been implied that these numbers will be small, but we don't really know.

    I teach both of the bottom sets in Y8 and thre are some fab kids in there who I really hope are not withdrawn from MFL. But I think it's definitely the right decision for a small number of our weakest pupils.

    We've had our time allocation in Y8 and Y9 cut from 3 hours to 2.5 hours a week and been subsumed into World Studies.
