star this property answer text <p>The new national curriculum, to be taught from September 2014, reflects a body of essential knowledge and core concepts in key subjects. The Government does not believe that it is appropriate for the national curriculum to set out how teachers should teach, or how they should structure their school day. The national curriculum has been slimmed down to allow teachers more flexibility to use their professionalism and expertise to create lessons that really inspire and engage their pupils, and help them to develop deeper knowledge and understanding of materials.</p> more like this

It is for individual schools to decide how much extra they choose to spend on educating pupils whose first language is not English.</p><p>Through their local funding formulas, local authorities may allocate funding to schools on the basis of the number of pupils in the school who speak English as an additional language and entered the state school system in the past three years. Local authorities allocated £233 million in this way in 2013-14. The funding is not ring-fenced within a school's budget so this figure may not be a reliable indicator of actual spending.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In June 2012 the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister announced the Government's Cadet Expansion Programme (CEP) to increase the number of state funded schools with their own military cadet force unit. The programme has been allocated £10.85 million by the Department for Education (DfE) and Ministry of Defence (MOD) so that more young people can benefit from the military cadet experience in school. The agreed DfE/MOD target is to establish 100 new units in state schools by the end of the academic year 2015/16. The CEP covers academic years from 2012/13 to 2015/16. At the end of academic year 2012/13, 21 new units had been established. A further 17 have been set up this academic year.</p><p>However, recent evidence shows that a military ethos – Service values and Service personnel – make a real difference in schools. Setting up a cadet forces scheme is a long-term way of embedding a military ethos in schools. We are commissioning plans to collect quantitative evidence on the impact of new cadet units.</p><p>The Government's aspiration is that all schools that want a cadet unit should be able to have one by 2020.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Responsibility for filling a vacancy on a governing body rests with the relevant appointing body for that vacancy. This will vary depending on the category of school and the category of governor.</p><p>Governing bodies should review their membership and size on a regular basis and ensure that appointments are made in an efficient and timely manner. The Governors' Handbook recommends that for every vacancy, governing bodies should conduct a skills audit to identify any gaps in the skills, knowledge and experience of existing governors. Governing bodies should also set out the specific skills and experience that the school needs for the relevant appointing body or electorate.</p><p>The Department for Education has committed funding to School Governors' One-Stop Shop (SGOSS), the governor recruitment charity, to March 2015. SGOSS provides a free service, matching high quality candidates that want to become governors with schools that have governor vacancies, according to the skills the schools need. In addition we are working with employers to encourage them to promote volunteering as a governor to their staff. This can potentially provide schools with an important source of highly skilled governors and is also an excellent learning and development opportunity for the employees concerned, carrying benefits back to their employer.</p>
