star this property answer text <p>The Department’s priorities for investment in the school estate are to ensure there are enough school places and that the school estate is safe.</p><p> </p><p>The Department has committed £7 billion to deliver new school places between 2015-2021, on top of the investment in the free school programme.</p><p> </p><p>Local authorities are under a statutory duty to ensure that there is a school place available for every child. Sheffield received £95.5 million to provide new school places from 2011-2018 and has been allocated a further £22 million from 2018-2021. Funding for school places is based on local authorities’ own data on school capacity and pupil forecasts. There is, therefore, no shortfall between the number of places funded and those that councils say they need to create.</p><p> </p><p>Since 2015, the Department has allocated £6 billion in condition funding to those responsible for maintaining school buildings across the country. Included within this, Sheffield local authority receives an annual school condition allocation to invest in maintenance priorities across its schools. In 2018-19, they received £2.7 million and voluntary aided (VA) schools in the area were allocated £210,000.</p><p>Maintained schools in Sheffield also received their own direct capital allocations totalling £2 million in 2018-19 and £109,000 for VA schools. This includes their allocation from the additional £400 million of capital funding announced at Budget 2018. These figures do not include academies, which receive separate funding.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, the Priority School Building Programme is rebuilding or refurbishing buildings in the worst condition at over 500 schools across England, including 4 schools in Sheffield City Council’s area.</p><p> </p><p>The Department is collecting updated data on the condition of the school estate in England which is due to be completed in autumn 2019 and will help inform future funding policy. The Department will also continue to look carefully at capital funding in preparation for the next Spending Review, along with all its priorities for the education system.</p><p> </p>

Unions and other representative organisations also contacted the Department.</p><p>The Teachers’ Pay Grant was introduced in response to changes to the School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions Document (STPCD), following recommendations from the School Teachers’ Review Body. This document applies to maintained schools, and as many academies choose to follow it, the grant was available to both maintained schools and academies.</p><p>There are 16-19 maintained schools which must follow the STPCD. These were included in the pay grant, alongside equivalent academies.</p><p>Further education (FE) and sixth form colleges have a different legal status and relationship to Government. They are private institutions, independent of Government, and it is for employers to agree pay structures, based on local needs. The Department is considering carefully the needs of FE colleges, including in relation to funding, in preparation for the next Spending Review.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>In January 2019, the Department launched the Teacher Recruitment and Retention Strategy. This includes commitments to simplify the accountability system, limit the amount of change that schools have to deliver and provide support to tackle challenging pupil behaviour. The Department is also introducing an Early Career Framework for teachers, which includes mentor training, so that newly qualified teachers receive the support they need. The strategy can be found at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/teacher-recruitment-and-retention-strategy" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/teacher-recruitment-and-retention-strategy</a>.</p><p>The strategy marks the beginning of a conversation with head teachers about how they can be supported to reduce unnecessary planning, marking and data requirements; supports teachers to deal with disruptive behaviour; and establishes a culture that values continued professional development and flexible working at all career stages.</p><p>The Department continues to work with unions, teachers and Ofsted to challenge and remove unnecessary workload and a joint letter from my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State, and other key national organisations was sent to school leaders in November confirming their support to help reduce workload in schools. The Department has accepted all the recommendations of the Making Data Work report and published a workload reduction toolkit as part of an ongoing programme to tackle excessive workload in schools.

star this property answer text <p>We believe that the decisions about the level of support required by individual children, and how much funding will be required to provide that support, are best taken by the child’s school or other education provider who works most closely with them and their parents and is therefore best placed to gauge what they need.</p><p>The special educational needs and disabilities reforms in the Children and Families Act (2014) have enabled greater personalisation of support through the use of a personal budget to provide children’s parents and young people with choice and control over the design of their care and education package. The personal budget is a sum of money made available by the local authority at the request of a parent or young person if it is clear that, without this additional funding, it will not be possible to meet the child’s learning needs.</p><p>Part or all of the personal budget payment can be paid directly to the family as a direct payment. This can be used for anything that achieves the child’s outcomes in their education, health and care plan, out of school activities, overnight short breaks or group activities supported by a personal assistant. It can also be used for targeted support such as specialist teacher services, sensory impairment support or speech and language therapy.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department started to collect data on asbestos management in schools in 2016. All state-funded schools in England were invited to participate in the voluntary data collection and 25% responded. The findings were published in a report on GOV.UK in February 2017, but the data collection did not include information about how much asbestos had been removed from the school estate.</p><p> </p><p>The Department launched a second data collection, the Asbestos Management Assurance Process, in March 2018, to help develop a more comprehensive understanding of asbestos management in the school estate which does include a question on asbestos removal. This data collection has just closed and responses are being analysed. The Department intends to publish the findings from this report in spring 2019.</p><p> </p><p>To help local authorities, governing bodies and academy trusts to meet their legal duties and manage asbestos effectively, the Department refers to advice from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). In February 2017, the Department also published ‘Asbestos Management in Schools’ guidance. The HSE advice is clear that if asbestos is unlikely to be damaged or disturbed, then it is best managed in situ. Although, the Department is also clear that when asbestos does pose a risk to safety and cannot be effectively managed in situ, it should be removed.</p><p> </p><p>Since 2015, the Department has allocated £6 billion to those responsible for school buildings and for essential maintenance and improvements, including removing or encapsulating asbestos when it is the safest course of action to do so. In addition, through the Priority School Building Programme, the Department is rebuilding or refurbishing buildings in the worst condition in over 500 schools across the country. Asbestos was a factor in selecting buildings for the programme.</p><p> </p>
