star this property answer text <p>It is important for parents and teachers to know how well a child is progressing. As such, communication and language, physical development and personal, social and emotional development are set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) statutory framework as prime learning areas for children from birth to age five.</p><br /><p>As part of the wider reforms to the accountability system for primary schools and the national curriculum we have introduced the reception baseline assessment for the 2015/16 academic year.</p><br /><p>The reception baseline forms one part of a teacher’s wider assessments in reception and we will expect early years practitioners to continue to carry out the appropriate ongoing, formative assessment of children of reception age.</p><br /><p>The EYFS statutory framework will also still require early years practitioners to carry out a progress check against the three prime areas of learning at age two, and we are improving this check for parents by bringing it together with health visitor checks in the form of new Integrated Reviews.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Most smokers start using tobacco regularly before the age of 18 so the Government has taken action to reduce the numbers of young people taking up smoking, for example by implementing legislation to end the open display of tobacco in shops.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Tobacco can no longer be sold from vending machines in England, which has removed an easily accessible source of cigarettes for underage smokers. We introduced a package of measures in the Children and Families Act aimed at protecting young people from tobacco and nicotine addiction and the serious health harms of smoked tobacco, including ending smoking in private vehicles carrying children and introducing an age of sale for electronic cigarettes.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Our strategy is working and it is welcome news that smoking rates among young people are also falling, with 8% of 15 year olds smoking. This achieves the national ambition to reduce smoking in 15 year olds to 12% or less by the end of 2015.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>We are committed to reducing the number of young people using drugs and ensuring that they are equipped with the information they need to make informed, healthy decisions and to keep themselves safe is essential. We are investing in a range of programmes which have a positive impact on young people, giving them the confidence, resilience and risk management skills to choose not to misuse drugs and/or alcohol. Examples include:</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>- through mainstream support and the FRANK drug information and advice service we are providing tailored information and advice to young people and to parents, to help them protect their children from drug and/or alcohol misuse;</p><p> </p><p>- drug and alcohol education is part of national curriculum science at key stage 2 and key stage 3 and schools are encouraged, by the Department of Education, to build on this provision through the Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) teaching within their classrooms; and</p><p> </p><p>- we have also developed online tools for educators and commissioners that include the Alcohol and Drug Education and Prevention Information Service (ADEPIS) which provides practical advice and tools based on the best international evidence; and the Centre for the Analysis of Youth Transitions (CAYT) has developed a database of evaluations of programmes aimed at improving outcomes for young people.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>In addition, this winter, Public Health England is aiming to launch Rise Above, an online resource and social movement designed to build young people’s (11-16 years old) resilience and empower them to make positive choices for their health. This includes equipping them with the resilience skills to tackle the health challenges of adolescence and handle risky situations.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Government’s Alcohol Strategy set out several measures to support our commitment to reducing underage drinking. These include educating young people on the risks associated with alcohol and by addressing factors that can influence young people’s attitude to alcohol, such as parental drinking. We are ensuring that guidance is available for parents through a range of public and community organisations including; NHS Choices, Directgov, Family Lives, and NetMum, Mumsnet, Dad Talk and Contact a Family.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Government has also reformed the Licensing Act to give local communities more powers. The Act includes provisions to double fines for under-age alcohol sales to £20,000 and give councils and the police the power to shut permanently shops or bars that persistently sell to children.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The school curriculum must be broad and balanced. It must promote pupils’ spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development, and prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.</p><p> </p><p>Personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education supports the teaching of all subjects across the school curriculum. With a new slimmed down curriculum, schools have more freedom and autonomy to integrate activities into the curriculum which can promote pupils’ wellbeing and build character.</p><p> </p><p>We have introduced a new departmental priority with the aim of supporting schools and colleges to prepare well-rounded young people for success in adult life. We are working closely with the Department of Health’s Children and Young People’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Taskforce, which includes school representatives, to look at how we can further improve the prevention and identification of mental health problems and access to mental health services.</p><p> </p>
