star this property answer text <p>The number and percentage of students taking design and technology (D&amp;T) and art and design qualifications is set out in the attached tables.</p><p>The government believes that both art and design and D&amp;T are important subjects. All state maintained secondary schools must teach art and design and D&amp;T to pupils aged 5-14. There is also a statutory entitlement for every pupil aged 14-16 to take D&amp;T and an arts subject, if they wish to do so.</p><p>Like maintained schools, academies must provide a broad and balanced curriculum. Ofsted’s new inspection arrangements, which will be introduced in September, place a renewed focus on schools ensuring all pupils receive a broad, balanced and ambitious curriculum.</p><p>The arts are an essential part of a broad and balanced education and high-quality arts education should not be the preserve of the elite, but the entitlement of every single child. Between 2016-20, we are spending almost £500 million on a range of arts and cultural education programmes.</p><p>At primary school, data from the Teacher Voice Omnibus 2016 survey revealed that the average amount of time spent teaching art and design and D&amp;T was broadly similar to the amount of time spent teaching history and geography. GCSE art and design remains a popular choice and 2019 Ofqual provisional GCSE data shows the proportion of pupils taking this subject has increased since 2018.</p><p>The department has worked closely with organisations such as the James Dyson Foundation and Royal Academy of Engineering to strengthen the new D&amp;T curriculum and GCSE. The new GCSE will be taken for the first time in summer 2019. To improve the quality of teaching D&amp;T in schools, the department offers D&amp;T graduates bursaries of up to £12,000 to enter the profession.</p><p>Both art and design and D&amp;T GCSEs count towards the progress and attainment 8 secondary accountability measures, which is the headline measure of secondary school performance.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
