There are false reports that lateral flow tests can give you cancer. These rapid tests have been rigorously tested and are safe. The swabs are sterilised with ethylene oxide to ensure they are safe to use. It is one of the most commonly used sterilisation tools. https://t.co/lYWDRluMUh

Key Stage 4:

E-Bacc

The English Baccalaureate (E-Bacc) was introduced as a performance measure for schools in England in the 2010 performance tables.  It is not a qualification.  The measure recognises students that have achieved a C/5 grade or better in five subjects from GCSE English, mathematics, history or geography, two sciences, computer science and a modern foreign language.  Students who are considering entry to a top university would be best advised to choose the E-Bacc subjects.  All students, where possible, should do this too, for breadth and balance in their chosen courses.

Progress 8

Progress 8 will be introduced for all schools in 2016 and will replace the 5A*-C measure.  This is a great step forward for schools as it will calculate a student’s progress throughout the GCSE course regardless of their ability.  Progress 8 encourages students to have a broad and balanced GCSE portfolio.  There is strong governmental advice about the expected spread of subjects needed for all students regardless of what they wish to do, to keep them competitive in the future.

The Progress 8 measure will be based on a student’s eight best subjects within the following criteria:

A double weighted GCSE mathematics

A double weighted English.  This can be either GCSE English Language or English Literature; whichever is the highest grade, as long as you are entered for both qualifications

The three highest grades from the E-Bacc subjects – biology, chemistry, physics, core and additional science, computer science, geography, history, French or Spanish

The best three grades from any of the remaining subjects included within the “open group”.  This could be three GCSE qualifications and can include the other English option not already counted.
