star this property answer text <p>In England there are 27 publicly-funded schools (i.e. local authority maintained schools and academies, including free schools) having a designated religious character as Muslim; and 148 independent schools registered as having a religious ethos of Muslim or Islam, or having a designated religious character of Muslim or Islam (or both)<strong><em>. </em></strong> The Department for Education does not regulate madrassahs or other out-of-school education settings and does not hold a complete record their numbers.</p><p>The quality of teaching in Muslim schools in England is inspected by Ofsted or one of the independent inspectorates approved by the Secretary of State.</p><p>All publicly funded schools must teach English to pupils up to the age of 16. English is both a subject in its own right and the medium for teaching in the vast majority of circumstances. The statutory independent school standards require that pupils acquire speaking, listening, literacy and numeracy skills. While independent schools are not required to teach in the medium of English, the standards require that where they do not, lessons in written and spoken English are provided.</p><p>The Department has no plans to legislate further to require schools to teach in the medium of English. The Department launched a call for evidence setting out proposals for a new system for regulating out-of-school education settings providing intensive education, but this did not suggest that they should be required to teach in English.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>There are 2.11 million suspicious activity reports (SARs) on the Elmer database. These SARs remain on the system either as result of ongoing activity from a law enforcement agency, or because the SAR is within the six year period for which data can be held on Elmer, in line with the ECHR and Data Protection legislation. In 2015/16 the UKFIU received over 400,000 SARs. Each SAR may include detail of the activities of a number of persons, and it is therefore not possible to determine how many nominal subjects are within the database.</p><p> </p><p>Following the House of Lords European Union Committee Inquiry into Money Laundering and the Financing of Terrorism in July 2009, and the Information Commissioner’s review of the ELMER database in 2010, the UK Financial Intelligence Unit (UKFIU) has implemented the Retention and Deletion policy for Suspicious Activity Reports. This sets the following criteria for the removal of SARs:</p><p> </p><p>o If definitive feedback is received from law enforcement end users that states a SAR is not connected with criminality, that SAR is deleted.</p><p>o Otherwise, the retention period for SARs is six years from the date of submission. After that time they are automatically deleted from the SARs database (ELMER) and other derivative systems, on a rolling daily deletion programme.</p><p>o When a SAR is deleted, an audit record showing the SAR Unique Reference Number (URN), date of creation and date of deletion is retained for all SARs. This record contains no personal data, but is used to confirm, if necessary, that a SAR has been submitted.</p><p>o There are occasions when, after six years, a SAR still forms part of an on-going case, investigation or appeal and is entirely the responsibility of the end user to ensure that copies of the required SARs are transferred to the investigating agency’s ‘case record’. The data control responsibility for those records is then transferred from the NCA to that agency.</p><p> </p><p>The UKFIU has access to the entire Elmer database, which includes ‘sensitive’ SARs such as those submitted on terrorism, integrity and some politically exposed persons.</p><p> </p><p>SARs are only directly available to agencies with officers with powers under the Proceeds of Crime Act, or under the Terrorism Act (for terrorist finance), and only with officers who have an accreditation enabling them to see SARs. All such access is governed by user agreements at both an agency and individual level. For other organisations to qualify for access to the non-sensitive version of ELMER, they must accept the terms of ‘The Organisation Agreement for Direct Access to Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs)’ which sets the objectives, responsibilities and conditions within which both the NCA and the end user must comply.</p>

Deportations are a specific subset of returns which are enforced either following a criminal conviction or when it is judged that a person’s removal from the UK is conducive to the public good. The deportation order prohibits the person returning to the UK until such time as it may be revoked. Published information on those deported is not separately available. As such, the question has been interpreted as referring to enforced returns. In an enforced return, it has been established that a person has breached UK immigration laws and / or has no valid leave to remain in the UK. They have declined to leave voluntarily and the Home Office enforces their departure from the UK.</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Year</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Total enforced removals</strong></p></td><td><p>Under <br> 14</p></td><td><p><br> 14-15</p></td><td><p><br> 16-17</p></td><td><p>18-20</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2004</p></td><td><p>21,425</p></td><td><p>1,448</p></td><td><p>123</p></td><td><p>274</p></td><td><p>1,722</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2005</p></td><td><p>20,808</p></td><td><p>1,361</p></td><td><p>173</p></td><td><p>278</p></td><td><p>1,643</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2006</p></td><td><p>19,372</p></td><td><p>1,049</p></td><td><p>111</p></td><td><p>198</p></td><td><p>1,365</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2007</p></td><td><p>17,770</p></td><td><p>786</p></td><td><p>68</p></td><td><p>95</p></td><td><p>1,041</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2008</p></td><td><p>17,239</p></td><td><p>684</p></td><td><p>76</p></td><td><p>91</p></td><td><p>1,060</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2009</p></td><td><p>15,252</p></td><td><p>584</p></td><td><p>53</p></td><td><p>84</p></td><td><p>1,013</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010</p></td><td><p>14,854</p></td><td><p>296</p></td><td><p>26</p></td><td><p>30</p></td><td><p>991</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011</p></td><td><p>15,063</p></td><td><p>140</p></td><td><p>9</p></td><td><p>31</p></td><td><p>1,138</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012</p></td><td><p>14,647</p></td><td><p>183</p></td><td><p>17</p></td><td><p>23</p></td><td><p>855</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013</p></td><td><p>13,311</p></td><td><p>160</p></td><td><p>12</p></td><td><p>15</p></td><td><p>795</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014</p></td><td><p>12,627</p></td><td><p>76</p></td><td><p>2</p></td><td><p>14</p></td><td><p>601</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015</p></td><td><p>12,111</p></td><td><p>82</p></td><td><p>6</p></td><td><p>6</p></td><td><p>701</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016</p></td><td><p>10,872</p></td><td><p>26</p></td><td><p>1</p></td><td><p>0</p></td><td><p>610</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p><strong>Notes:</strong></p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Data from Q1 2015 are provisional figures.</p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Data on returns are based on individual cases.
