Over the past few weeks I have been responding to requests for help from teachers approaching the D&T Association asking for information they can use to include in Y8 option booklets as they run three year GCSE courses. The minimising of KS3 to two years and the extension of KS4 courses to three seems to have become popular. I think I understand the reasons why although I don't agree with them. If you are one of those schools, I'm guessing what you say to potential students and parents regarding the GCSE specifications that will be taught for the first time from Sept 2017may be causing you some concern. But it needn't do. What are you doing own your school?
