The Effects Of The English Baccalaureate

This Ipsos MORI research commissioned by the DfE looks at the effects of the English Baccalaureate (EBacc) on schools, parents/carers and pupils. The EBacc is not a qualification in itself, but it is the term applied to the achievement of GCSEs at grades ‘A*’-‘C’ across a core of academic subjects; English, maths, history or geography, the sciences and a language. Leadership Briefing 12.05 (137)

The research presents estimates of the economic value of reducing the disadvantage attainment gap in each region in England, so that it is the same size as the attainment gap in London and improving the attainment of disadvantaged pupils in all regions to the same level as in London.
