star this property answer text <p>As part of the reforms to the national curriculum, the Department for Education is strengthening the teaching of computing in schools by replacing information and communications technology with computing. The new programmes of study for computing, which will be taught in maintained schools from September 2014, have a much greater emphasis on computer science. For example, pupils at key stage 1 will be taught to create and debug simple programs and key stage 3 pupils will be taught to use two or more programming languages.</p><p>We also working with exam boards and sector experts to review the computer science GCSE and A level so that they reflect and build upon the changes made to the curriculum. The inclusion of computer science in the English Baccalaureate will provide further encouragement for pupils to take up the subject at GCSE level. We are also providing funding for several projects to help teachers acquire the necessary subject knowledge and skills to teach the new computing curriculum.</p><p>We are funding the British Computer Society to build a network of 400 ‘Master Teachers', create online teach-yourself resources and deliver 800 in-school workshops to help primary school teachers improve their subject knowledge. A further £500,000 competitive match-funded scheme was announced on 4 February to support excellent computing teaching and lever additional investment and engagement from business.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government has made preventing and tackling bullying in primary and secondary schools one of its top priorities by striking a balance between schools' legal requirements, freedom and accountability.</p><p> </p><p>All schools must have a behaviour policy with measures to prevent all forms of bullying among pupils, including that which occurs online. Schools have the freedom to shape these measures in the context of their pupils' needs. They are held to account by Ofsted for their effectiveness in preventing bullying, harassment and discrimination.</p><p> </p><p>Through the Education Act 2011, we strengthened teachers' powers to discipline pupils for poor behaviour, including bullying. They can now issue same day detentions, confiscate banned items and search for, and if necessary delete, inappropriate images on mobile phones which might be linked to cyberbullying. This advice was updated in February 2014 to make clear that tough but proportionate sanctions can be deployed to deal with misbehaviour, which includes bullying. It is published online at:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/behaviour-and-discipline-in-schools" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/publications/behaviour-and-discipline-in-schools</a></p><p> </p><p>In 2011, the Government published streamlined advice for schools, reducing it from 481 pages to just 11 pages to make absolutely clear schools' legal obligations to prevent and tackle bullying, and clarify teachers' powers to discipline pupils for unacceptable behaviour. This advice is published online at:</p><p><a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/publications/preventing-and-tackling-bullying" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/publications/preventing-and-tackling-bullying</a></p><p> </p><p>In February 2014, we issued an online leaflet about schools' responsibilities to support children who are bullied. This contains advice that makes clear that schools should make appropriate provision for a bullied child's social, emotional and mental health needs. This advice is also published online at:</p><p><a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/publications/preventing-and-tackling-bullying" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/publications/preventing-and-tackling-bullying</a></p><p> </p><p>To further support schools, in February 2014, the Department produced case studies showing good practice in how schools manage behaviour and bullying. The case studies give real life examples of what schools do to identify and respond to bullying. This is published online at:</p><p><a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/collections/managing-behaviour-and-bullying-in-schools-case-studies" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/collections/managing-behaviour-and-bullying-in-schools-case-studies</a></p><p> </p><p>From September 2014, pupils in all four key stages will be taught about e-safety as part of the new curriculum. For the first time, schools will be legally required to teach <br> e-safety to pupils in infant and junior schools. This will empower all young people to tackle cyberbullying through responsible, respectful and secure use of technology.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>We are also providing £4 million of funding over two years from spring 2013 to four organisations: Beatbullying, the Diana Award, Kidscape and the National Children's Bureau, to develop effective initiatives to prevent and tackle bullying.</p>
