Parliament quoted by Hansard, 18th May Written Answers

Music: English Baccalaureate

Diana Johnson: To ask the Secretary of State for Education if he will review the decision to exclude music from the English Baccalaureate in light of the conclusions and recommendations of the independent Henley Review of music education in England. [55604]


Mr Gibb: The English Baccalaureate is not intended as a list of the only valuable or rigorous subjects.


We recognise the importance of music which is why we commissioned Darren Henley's review of music education. We will respond to his recommendations with a new national plan for music education in the summer.
