The DfE on Community Languages re. the EBacc

Discussion in 'Headteachers' started by Linguista, Feb 3, 2011.

  1. I get emails almost every day asking if Community Languages (i.e. Punjabi, Polish, Norwegian, etc.) count towards the EBacc; and if so, exactly which qualifications are valid (as this was not addressed in the Addendum).
    The Association for Language Learning has managed to get some information about this from the DfE and you can read it here: <u>www.linguista.es/</u>
    I think it's great news and schools that are quick and clever to respond have a great chance to boost their league table position via the EBacc Indicator for 2011. The best thing about this is that these will be exactly the schools with lots of immigrants usually associated with low attainment, so the EBacc may actually act as a kind of leveller. What do you think?
     
  2. New documents added, including:
    • Subject requirements for the new NC to be implemented from 2014
    • List of qualifications valid for the league tables from 2014 on
