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

Entries would be marked as green if they matched with DWP, amber if they were a partial match or red if there was no match.</p><p>It is not possible to provide results for the divisions used by Lancashire County Council area as the matching was carried out using the district councils' electoral wards.

star this property answer text <p>It is the responsibility of individual ministers to decide what answers they give to Questions for Written Answer (QWAs), and they are of course accountable to the House for those answers. The importance of this direct accountability is such that I recently decided, following the introduction of a new system for answering QWAs electronically, to require Ministers in this House to continue providing personally signed answers to noble Lords. The Ministerial Code states that “It is of paramount importance that Ministers give accurate and truthful information to Parliament”.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We do not collect this data centrally. 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
