Government has signalled that certain subjects are essential and others out or optional. Drama is not seen as a universal necessity. My local comprehensive, for example, excludes Drama in Years 7 and 8. I have created a 121 slide presentation which can be used to support the case of Drama's curriculum inclusion. Please adapt an use it as you wish and contact me if necessary to discuss things.
