NAHT comments on new Natural History GCSE

Commenting as the government announce a new Natural History GCSE as part of their Sustainability and Climate Change Strategy, Paul Whiteman, general secretary of school leaders’ union NAHT, said:

“The development of a GCSE in Natural History is a very welcome step to enable and encourage pupils at KS4 to learn more about the natural world. But it is vital that education about the environment, climate and sustainability is embedded throughout the curriculum at all key stages - all children and young people should be supported to develop their knowledge and understanding of the world we live in, including environmental issues which they feel passionately about.”
