NEWS - #SaveOurSubjects - A campaign for broadening the curriculum in England

Written by William Thompson16/08/23

In order to address issues of falling entries in arts and technology subjects, fewer teachers teaching arts in English schools, a lack of balance in the EBacc, and low funding, a host of music organisations in England have come together to launch the #SaveOurSubjects campaign.

#SaveOurSubjects is asking government to:

  • Review the impact of accountability measures (the EBacc and Progress 8) on arts and technology subjects
  • Reform the Progress 8 accountability measure, giving pupils more freedom of choice at GCSE
  • Deliver the Arts Premium promised in the Conservatives’ 2019 election manifesto

The #SaveOurSubjects campaign is managed jointly by the Independent Society of Musicians and the Edge Foundation  and you can read blogs, news, find research and articles and add your support to the campaign by visiting the website https://www.saveoursubjects.org and following the #SaveOurSubjects hashtag on social media.
