Tes Podcast: Sats plastic and three year GCSEs

Join the Tes team, as we discuss the plastic waste produced by Sats and what we can do about it. The team also talk about three-year GCSEs: do they help pupils to learn a subject in depth or are schools just narrowing the curriculum and trying to hothouse young people for their exams?

We also discuss the death of the much-loved children's writer, Judith Kerr. Tes reporter Adi Bloom reminisces about the time she met and profiled the author of The Tiger Who Came to Tea.

Tune in and enjoy.
