star this property answer text <p>As at 31 January 2019, there were 200 commitments in England entered into the Apprenticeship Service, where the transfer of funds between apprenticeship service accounts has been approved (a commitment is where a potential apprentice, who is expected to go on to start an apprenticeship, has been recorded with the Apprenticeship Service). Of these transferred commitments as at 31 January 2019, there were 130 transferred commitments that had materialised into apprenticeship starts. Further statistics can be found here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/apprenticeship-and-levy-statistics-february-2019" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/apprenticeship-and-levy-statistics-february-2019</a>.</p><p>Information on companies transferring apprenticeship levy funds in each region of England is not available in the format requested. Many levy-paying employers are headquartered in one region but operate across the country meaning that we cannot attribute levy-funds transferred in individual locations. Individual employers have control of the expenditure (and transfer) of apprenticeship levy funds based on their current and future skills needs.</p><p>It should be noted that, from April this year, levy-paying employers can transfer 25% of their levy funds to other employers.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We spend around £600 million every year ensuring 1.5 million infants in reception, year 1 and year 2 receive a free, nutritious meal at lunchtime. This ensures pupils are well nourished, develop healthy eating habits and can concentrate and learn.</p><p>We know that a balanced and nutritious meal, which includes vegetables and fruit, is good for the health and well-being of children. By showing that more children are eating a school meal we are confident that our universal infant free school meal (UIFSM) policy is having a positive impact on children. We expect UIFSMs to bring longer term benefits for children’s health by instilling early in life healthy eating habits which will be carried forward into later years.</p><p>Shared mealtimes are great for learning to talk, behave, take turns, be polite and share. Schools trialling free school meals in advance of the policy being introduced reported better behaviour and a nicer atmosphere as a result of pupils eating together every day.</p><p>Since 2010 we’ve been reforming education and driving up school standards. 1.9 million more children are now being taught in good and outstanding schools than were in 2010, thanks in part to our reforms.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department is aware of the issues with gas supply at Little Ilford School, which was rebuilt under phase one of the Priority School Building Programme and which opened in its new building in 2016.</p><p>Air was seeping into the gas system, resulting in a lack of gas. Major work was carried out on the school’s gas pipework in summer 2018, which initially resolved the issue until late in the autumn term. The contractor, Wates, carried out testing over a weekend in January and reported blockages in the gas taps, caused by items including pencils and chewing gum. Wates recommended that the faulty taps should be replaced or repaired.</p><p>The faulty gas outlets have now been replaced and repaired by the school and they have been advised to regularly check for blockages to prevent this issue reoccurring. This appears to have resolved the issue, but the Department continues to work with the school to monitor the situation and provide advice and training. Wates will go to the site during half term to ensure that all gas outlets are working correctly before the children return.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The government fully recognises the important economic and cultural contribution that EU and international students make to the UK’s higher education sector. We want that contribution to continue and we are confident – given the world-class quality of our higher education sector – that it will. We welcome international students and there continues to be no limit on the number who can come here to study, nor any plans to limit any institution’s ability to recruit them.</p><p> </p><p>The UK remains a highly attractive destination for non-EU students, with their numbers remaining at record highs – over 170,000 non-EU entrants to UK higher education institutions for the seventh year running. The UK is a world-leading destination for study, with 4 universities in the world’s top 10 and 16 in the top 100 – second only to the USA. We actively promote study in the UK through the GREAT Campaign and to over 100 countries through the British Council.</p><p> </p><p>That is why the government announced on 21 January that an international education strategy will be produced by the Department for Education and the Department for International Trade in 2019. The strategy will set out the government’s ambition for international education, in which international students play a key role, and plans to support the sector in driving growth in education exports.</p><p> </p><p>In the Immigration White Paper, published on 19 December 2018, the UK government proposed to increase the post-study leave period for international students following completion of studies to 12 months for those completing a PhD, and to 6 months for all full-time postgraduate students and undergraduate students at institutions with degree awarding powers. Going beyond the recommendations set out by the Migration Advisory Committee, these proposals will benefit tens of thousands of international students.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department collected data on the nationality, country of birth and proficiency in English of pupils via the school census between autumn 2016 and summer 2018. The data was collected for the purposes of educational research to help better understand the impact of migration on the school system. Understanding trends in migration and the associated needs in the school system, helps us ensure that all children in the UK, regardless of their nationality, have the best possible education.</p><p>The requirement for parents and guardians to provide information on their children’s nationality and country of birth was optional and the school census guidance expected schools to ensure that they were made aware of their right to decline to provide this data. Guidance also advised schools to inform parents that if they wished to retract any nationality or country of birth information returned in a previous census, they should inform their school of this decision. This would then be transferred to the Department and the Department would remove from its systems any information previously returned. As this data is no longer collected, the last opportunity for parents to retract this information was via the last collection in summer 2018.</p>
