Hi, Has anyone noticed a significant change in the way Dt is now portrayed in their schools due to the new EBacc system? I can imagine that it is having quite an impact on departments and was just wondering about the lay of the land - is the new system altering option groups, peoples opinions of Dt etc? As a Head of Dept (4 years in, so quite a newbie), I'm having external pressure of results undermined by other subjects being 'more important' when I'm trying to be pro-active. E.g. getting kids back for extra sessions/catch-up etc. It really feels like I'm in a no-win situation. I'm also having really keen Dt students in Yr9 not being able to choose Dt due to option pathways and in some cases being influenced by other staff. What are other peoples situations and how are they coping?
