Efforts have been made to ensure that girls and boys can succeed on an equal basis particularly in STEM. Data from the Joint Council for Qualifications shows that entries by girls made up 27.2% of all entries to A levels in STEM subjects in 2018, an increase of 6.4 percentage points since 2010. There is near gender parity in most STEM subjects at GCSE with entries by girls making up 50% of those sitting biology, physics and chemistry GCSEs respectively in 2018.</p><p> </p><p>The Department is funding a £2.4 million program to improve girls’ participation in computer science. The Department also funds the Stimulating Physics Network to improve progression to A level physics with a particular focus on improving girls’ participation.</p><p> </p><p>The Department has committed to improving STEM careers advice in schools in the Careers Strategy. This includes ensuring that STEM engagement, such as with employers and apprenticeships, are built into school career programmes by updating school and college statutory guidance. The Department is also raising awareness of the range of careers that STEM qualifications offer through programmes such as STEM ambassadors, 44% of which ambassadors are women.</p>

However, the Government is clear that music is an important subject and that all pupils should receive a high quality music education, at least up to age 14 as part of the national curriculum. In addition, the Government is providing funding of over £300 million for music education hubs between 2016 and 2020.</p><p>Music education hubs cover every local authority area, and focus on assessing and meeting local needs of children, drawing on a range of local, national and regional music and arts provision in each area. The core roles of the hubs are to ensure that every child aged 5-18 can learn a musical instrument through whole-class ensemble teaching programmes for ideally a year (but for a minimum of a term) of weekly tuition on the same instrument. Their role is also to provide opportunities to play in ensembles and to perform from an early stage, to ensure that clear progression routes are available and affordable to all young people, and to develop a singing strategy to ensure that every pupil sings regularly and that choirs and other vocal ensembles are available in the area.</p><p>Financial allocations to music education hubs by local authority area can be found at: <a href="https://www.artscouncil.org.uk/music-education/music-education-hubs" target="_blank">https://www.artscouncil.org.uk/music-education/music-education-hubs</a>.</p><p>In order to ensure all pupils are able to enjoy a high quality music education, the Department is developing and publishing a non-statutory model music curriculum for Key Stages 1-3. This will expand on the statutory programmes of study and act as a benchmark for all schools.</p><p> </p>
