It is vital that children are taught about environmental and sustainability issues, which is why these are covered in the science and geography curriculums.

The department is exploring proposals for a new GCSE in natural history and has engaged with the examination board, OCR, on this matter. The department is carefully considering these proposals and will provide further details in due course.
