ICT knowledge was assessed against four component elements, including word processing, emailing, spreadsheets and a multiple choice assessment of other ICT expertise such as internet use.

star this property answer text <p>‘Keeping children safe in education’ (KCSIE) is the statutory guidance which schools and colleges must have regard to, when carrying out their duties to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. KCSIE sets out that governing bodies and proprietors should ensure that children are taught about safeguarding, including staying safe online, through appropriate teaching. This may include covering relevant issues through Personal, Social, Health and Economic education and through Sex and Relationship education.</p><p>The Children and Social Work Act 2017 places a duty on the Secretary of State for Education to make Relationships Education at primary and Relationship and Sex Education at secondary mandatory through regulations. We expect the teaching of safe online relationships to be part of this. To get this right, the Department will be engaging with schools, teachers; parents and pupils; experts in safeguarding and child wellbeing; subject experts; faith groups; voluntary organisations and other interested parties; and other Government Departments and public sector bodies.</p><p>The new computing curriculum (ages 5-16) was introduced in September 2014 to replace the ICT curriculum, which was widely regarded by industry and academics as outdated. The development of the content was largely led by sector representatives and includes topics on digital literacy and using communications technology responsibly.</p><p> </p><p>The Department funds the Network of Excellence programme which provides high quality teacher continuous professional development to support the new computing curriculum and reformed computer science GCSE, provided by a team of around 400 ‘Master Teachers’ and coordinated by ten university based regional centres.</p><p> </p><p>Ofsted takes into account pupils’ understanding of how to stay safe online and the dangers of inappropriate use of mobile technology and social networking sites as part of their inspection process.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Our most recent assessments of the levels of bullying in schools were published in July this year within The National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER) Teacher Voice Survey and the Omnibus Survey of Pupils and their Parents / Carers.</p><p> </p><p>Questions in the <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/625908/NFER_Teacher_Voice_report_November_2016.pdf" target="_blank">NFER Teacher Voice Omnibus</a> and a senior leader booster survey found that for each type of bullying asked about, the majority of respondents said they had rarely or never seen them occurring amongst pupils over the previous 12 months. This ranged from 73% of respondents saying they had rarely or never seen bullying based on sexist or sexual language, to 94% of respondents who said they had rarely or never seen anti-Semitic bullying. The most commonly observed form of bullying was sexist/related to sexual language with 27% reporting seeing it ‘sometimes’, ‘often’ or ‘very often’. For all types of bullying asked about in the survey, the proportion of respondents saying they had seen or received reports of them occurring in the last 12 months was higher in secondary schools than primary schools.</p><p> </p><p>The Department’s <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/626068/PPC_Omnibus_Wave_2_Report.pdf" target="_blank">Omnibus Survey of Pupils and their Parents/Carers</a> found that nearly half of pupils (45%) said they had been bullied at least once in the past year. This survey did not cover primary age pupils.</p><p>Although we plan to ask these questions on an annual basis going forward, this was the first time these surveys have asked about levels of bullying and so we do not have comparable data to assess trends.</p><p>However, a separate survey published in 2015 - <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/bullying-evidence-from-lsype2-wave-2" target="_blank">wave 2 results from the Longitudinal Study of Young People in England 2 </a>(LSYPE 2) - compared bullying among two cohorts of 14 year olds (year 10) from 2004 and 2014. It found that 30,000 fewer people in year 10 said they had been bullied in the last twelve months - a drop from 41% in 2004 to 36% in 2014. The analysis of later LSYPE2 waves will also include bullying figures. These findings will be published when the analysis is complete and quality assured.</p>

star this property answer text <p>In 2016, the Secretary of State for Health announced the Government’s commitment to expanding the number of undergraduate medical training places available each year by 1,500. The Government response to the public consultation on how to implement these proposals was published on 9 August 2017. It confirmed the commitment to an expansion of 1,500 places, starting with an increase of 500 places in August 2018.</p><p>The consultation response also outlined the Government’s priorities for inclusion in the bidding criteria for the allocation of the remaining 1,000 places from August 2019. There will be some flexibility to consider phased starts in 2018-19 or 2020-21 where bids that are best able to meet the Government’s policy objectives provide strong evidence of the need to provide places to a different timescale.</p><p>Since publication of the consultation response, the Secretary of State for Education has not received proposals for the establishment of new medical schools. Further information is due in the autumn from the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and Health Education England (HEE), who are currently designing the competitive bidding process in which established, new and aspiring medical schools can participate.</p>

It compares the progress pupils make across eight subjects and, so far, only one year of complete data exists.</p><p>Progress 8 focuses on an academic core in which both English language and English literature can be double weighted to signify their importance. In order to qualify for that additional weighting in English, a pupil must be entered to sit both GCSE English language and GCSE English literature. If a pupil does sit both qualifications, the highest grade achieved in either GCSE English language or GCSE English literature will receive double weighting for the English element of Progress 8. The other English GCSE can also contribute to the ‘open’ element of Progress 8 if it is one of the three highest grades achieved eligible for that element.</p><p>There is not sufficient data available yet to comment on any trends in Progress 8 performance, or the differences between sitting either one of, or both, English language and English literature.</p>
