star this property answer text <p>Local authority maintained schools are able to recover VAT costs because they are part of local government and their expenditure is regarded as the expenditure of the local authority. Local authorities as a whole are able to recover VAT costs because they are subsidiary tax-raising authorities within the United Kingdom.</p><p> </p><p>When schools move outside local authority control to become academies they are no longer covered by this regime. Since 2011, legislation has been in force that ensures that in this respect academies are treated in the same way as maintained schools. Academies can recover directly from HMRC the VAT which they incur on goods and services<em>.</em></p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Our pay reforms have given schools greater flexibility to develop pay policies that are tailored to their needs. That includes the freedom to pay what they consider to be the appropriate rate for the skills that someone brings and the challenges of the job rather than having to pay a teacher what they had previously been paid at another school. We do not monitor how schools are using their new flexibilities but would expect schools to be actively considering their approach to pay portability within the pay freedoms now available to them.</p> more like this

We are therefore supporting schools to attract and retain high quality teachers, minimising any disruption to children’s learning. Official statistics show that teacher vacancy rates are declining and retention remains stable, with the majority of new teachers still teaching after five years. Children in England now have the best chance they have ever had of attending a good or outstanding school.</p><p> </p> more like this

From 2016 we are replacing the existing secondary school floor standard, based on the percentage of pupils achieving 5 or more A*- C grades including English and maths, with Progress 8. This is a measure based on the progress a pupil makes from KS2 (age 11) to a group of 8 subjects at the end of KS4 (age 16) compared to pupils with the same starting point.</p><p>Progress 8 is a fairer way of measuring school performance as schools will no longer be disadvantaged by having a challenging intake.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department for Education is committed to recruiting high-quality graduates into the teaching profession, and we have a range of initiatives designed to attract the best potential teachers.</p><p>In September 2014 we launched a new marketing campaign called ‘Your Future | Their Future’. We use a range of activities including national newspaper advertising, targeted digital communications and face-to-face events to reach excellent potential teachers, including career changers, and to persuade them to pursue a career in teaching.</p><p>Additional funding has been made available to schools offering School Direct (salaried) places to boost starting salaries and encourage more experienced graduates to enter teacher training across a range of subjects. School Direct (salaried) is an employment-based route for high-quality, experienced graduates who earn a salary whilst training.</p><p>We provide an information service for anyone looking to enter teaching through the Teaching Line. Those interested in teaching a priority subject are given access to the Premier Plus programme. This includes support from a dedicated recruitment advisor, access to exclusive events and regular communications with important news and application hints and tips.</p><p>We have extended the School Experience Programme (SEP) this year to include non-funded subjects as well as funded priority subjects. SEP gives prospective teachers the chance to gain school experience, helping them to choose teaching as a career.</p><p>Prestigious scholarship awards are available to outstanding graduates with a 2:1 or first-class degree in maths, physics, chemistry, and computing. Scholarships come with a package of non-financial benefits, such as membership of the appropriate professional body, mentoring, and continuous professional development.</p><p>New entrants to initial teacher training are becoming better qualified. Overall, we have seen an increase each year in the percentage of new entrants who hold a first class or 2:1 degree; rising from 61% in 2009/10 to 73% in 2014/15.</p><p>In addition, we have supported the expansion of Teach First , which focuses on getting the highest quality teachers into our most challenging schools, by more than doubling the number of programme participants since 2010, and ensuring the programme covers all English government regions.</p><p> </p>
