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. The report and government response can be found at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/teacher-workload-advisory-group-report-and-government-response" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/teacher-workload-advisory-group-report-and-government-response</a>.</p><p> </p>

These include Ofsted and the Teaching Unions. It has been warmly received across the education sector, and work is already beginning to deliver the commitments made in the Strategy. Events are being run across the country in March 2019 to communicate the aims of the Strategy, primarily for head teachers and other school leaders.

Health education will also become compulsory in all primary and secondary schools.

All schools will be required to teach the subjects from September 2020, but they will be encouraged and supported to start teaching them from September 2019 on a voluntary basis.</p><p> </p><p>The draft guidance sets out that pupils should be taught the facts about sleep and about how insufficient sleep can affect both physical health and mental wellbeing, including a person’s weight, mood and ability to learn. Information and resources used should be age appropriate and medically accurate. Existing resources for teaching about sleep as part of health education are already available for schools to use. Examples of these are the PSHE Association’s recently quality assured teaching resources on sleep, as in the following link: <a href="https://www.pshe-association.org.uk/curriculum-and-resources/resources/sleep-factor-lesson-plans" target="_blank">https://www.pshe-association.org.uk/curriculum-and-resources/resources/sleep-factor-lesson-plans</a>.</p><p> </p>
