NASUWT

Commenting on the GCSE results, Ms Chris Keates, General Secretary (Acting) of the NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union, said:


“Congratulations must go to pupils and their teachers for their hard work in achieving yet another impressive set of results.

“The stability of the results year-on-year, despite the overhaul of the grading system and changes to the structure of the qualifications is a testament to the effort that pupils have put in and the dedication of their teachers in supporting their pupils to achieve their best.

“One point of continued concern for the NASUWT is the ongoing sharp decline in the number of GCSE entries in some non E-Bacc subjects such as RE and design and technology.

“This is the inevitable outcome of the pressure on schools to prioritise E-Bacc subjects which has led to time for non-EBacc subjects being reduced in many schools and cuts to staffing and resources in these subjects.

“The NASUWT believes this is undermining young people’s access to a broad and balanced curriculum and their opportunity to pursue a wide range of learning opportunities.”
