star this property answer text <p>The Government announced the Teachers’ Student Loan Reimbursement scheme in October 2017, fulfilling our manifesto commitment to help new teachers stay in the profession by forgiving their student loan repayments. The scheme is a pilot that is testing the impact of offering this incentive on teacher retention. It is aimed at early career teachers of languages and science who qualified since 2013/14, and is available in specific local authorities. Information on the scheme is available here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/guidance/teachers-student-loan-reimbursement-guidance-for-teachers-and-schools" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/guidance/teachers-student-loan-reimbursement-guidance-for-teachers-and-schools</a>.</p><p>The scheme has been designed in this way because retention is most challenging early in teachers' careers, and because science and languages are in high demand by schools.</p><p>The local authorities where teachers’ student loan reimbursement applies have high need for teachers. This is determined by the 'Defining Achieving Excellence Areas' methodology, available here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/defining-achieving-excellence-areas-methodology" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/defining-achieving-excellence-areas-methodology</a>.</p><p>High need areas not included in the scheme are in the control group, which will enable the Department to conduct a robust evaluation.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Children and Families Act (2014) introduced a new duty on local authorities in England to advise, assist and support fostered young people to stay with their foster families when they reach 18, if both parties agree. This allow the young person to transition to adulthood when they wish and from the security and stability of an established family base. As with other young people, some care leavers will choose to live independently at age 18; others will choose to live in a staying put arrangement for a short period whilst they complete their education; some will want and need ongoing support within a staying put arrangement until they reach their 21<sup>st</sup> birthday.</p><p>Information on the number of children in Gloucestershire who ceased to be looked after in a foster placement on their 18th birthday who were eligible for care leaver support and were still living with their former foster carer (“staying put”) at age 18 or age 19 to 20 are shown in the attached tables.</p><p>In the table, figures on the number of 18 year old care leavers are presented in a separate tab to figures on 19 and 20 year olds. They were only collected for the first time on an individual level basis in 2016 and are still classed as experimental statistics.</p><p>Information on the number of times a child looked after is not granted continuity of care is not held centrally.</p>

A teacher must not be required to carry out any other duties during the teacher’s PPA time.</p><p>There have been no changes in the time allocated to teachers for planning, preparation and assessment: this requirement has been in place since 2004.</p><p>The Department continues to work with unions, teachers and Ofsted to challenge and remove unnecessary workload so that teachers can focus on tasks which make the most positive impact on their pupils. For example, a workload reduction toolkit has been published which provides schools with practical tools and evidence-based solutions to enable them to streamline practice in their schools. This includes a section on reviewing curriculum planning with case studies on how schools have successfully reduced workload associated with planning.</p><p>The workload reduction toolkit can be found here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/workload-reduction-toolkit" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/workload-reduction-toolkit</a>.</p><p> </p>

Academy trusts are the legal entities responsible for academies, including their finances, and are accountable at trust level. The accounts for each trust are submitted for publication on the Companies House website by May of each year; the latest accounts, published this year, relate to 2016-17.</p><p> </p><p>The latest figures for Gloucestershire’s maintained schools showed one hundred and eighty-eight primary schools and five secondary schools reporting a cumulative surplus or breaking even, compared to fifteen primary schools and one secondary school reporting a deficit in the financial year 2016-17.</p><p> </p><p>Forty-four primary and thirty secondary academies in Gloucestershire were in trusts that reported a surplus in the academic year 2016-17, compared to one primary and three secondary academies in trusts that reported a deficit. An academy in a local authority may belong to a trust outside the local authority.</p><p> </p><p>Academy trust accounts allow for a significantly higher level of public scrutiny than is required of maintained schools. This is because maintained schools are not required to prepare individual statutory accounts – their financial performance is instead summarised within local authorities’ accounts.</p><p> </p><p>Academy trust accounts are consolidated in the Sector Annual Report and Accounts (SARA). The SARA provides a sector-level overview and does not break down the data by trust or local authority.
