A survey conducted recently by Ipsos Mori on behalf of the Department for Education found no evidence that the introduction of the English Baccalaureate has had an impact on the teaching of physical education (PE) in secondary schools. PE is a compulsory part of the National Curriculum at all four key stages and will remain compulsory following the current review of the National Curriculum. Although pupils studying PE at key stage 4 do not have to take an examination in the subject, they do have to follow the full programme of study for PE for that key stage.
