star this property answer text <p>The Government is supporting adults in England to develop the basic English, mathematics and digital expertise they need for future employment. This is why we provide full funding for adults to access a range of English and mathematics courses up to and including GCSE and equivalent qualifications. We are introducing a similar right to funding for specified Information and Communication Technology (ICT) courses.</p><p> </p><p>The Skills for Life Survey, 2011, estimated the literacy, numeracy and ICT knowledge of adults aged 16-64 in England, including estimates for regions and local authorities. 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. The estimates of the numbers and percentage of the adult population with different levels for these components, for England, London, and Newham are in the attached table.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

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was introduced in September 2014 to replace the ICT curriculum, which was widely regarded by industry and academics as outdated.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>The UK has a longstanding tradition of ensuring our rights and liberties are protected domestically and of fulfilling our international human rights obligations. The Charter of Fundamental Rights (the Charter) only applies to Member States when acting within the scope of EU law. The Charter did not create any new rights. Instead it was intended to catalogue the rights that already existed in EU law, and the bill sets out how this underlying law is being converted into UK law at the point we exit the EU. Therefore it is no longer appropriate, nor will it make sense in the context of the UK's exit from the EU, to retain the Charter in UK law.</p> more like this
