Parliamentary petition against the EBacc

BACK 01-03-2016

Bacc for the future

An official Parliamentary petition asking the Department for Education (DfE) to include expressive arts in the English Baccalaureate (EBacc) has been signed by almost 68,000 people.

We need your help to get it to 100,000.

If 100,000 people sign the petition in time, the EBacc will be debated in the House of Commons!
The petition closes on 9 May 2016.
We have just a few months to get the petition to 100,000 signatures.
You may remember the EBacc, as proposed, does not include any creative subjects. If it the current proposals go ahead, there will be little if any room left for creative subjects in secondary schools.
Art, dance, design, drama, music and many more subjects will all suffer and become the preserve of those who can afford to access them.
Please sign the petition today and spread the word!

Don’t forget, you can write to your MP using our template letter on the campaign website. If you have already heard back from your MP and they support the EBacc, we have prepared a useful myth-busting document to help you respond to them.
