star this property answer text <p>Academy trusts must exercise effective control over the use of public funding. That is why the Department has taken sustained action over the last two years to ensure executive pay is proportionate and justifiable.</p><p>Academy trusts are free to set their own salaries. Therefore, our challenge, and the consideration of the justification of any high executive salaries, takes into account factors including: educational performance, financial performance, the strength of the trust’s governance and the number of pupils being educated by the trust.</p><p>To date, the Department has challenged 278 academy trusts, both those paying a salary over £150,000 and those paying two or more over £100,000. The names of all these trusts are available on GOV.UK, along with guidance on the setting of executive pay. Since the Department commenced the challenge, 51 trusts have reduced salaries.</p><p>Most recently, the Department has strengthened the criteria for next year’s Condition Improvement Fund, which will incentivise academies and trusts to improve finances and governance. Bids will be assessed on a points based criteria and applicants outside of London will get a four-point deduction (a one-point deduction for trusts and academies in the greater London area) if they pay one salary over £150,000 or two or more salaries in excess of £100,000 and have failed to take appropriate action in response to our high pay challenge.</p>

This includes supporting schools to effectively implement their obligations under the Prevent duty; to protect young people from radicalising influences; ensuring that schools are equipped to build children’s resilience against extremist ideologies; and taking firm action where extremism concerns arise.</p><p>The Department has carried out its own regulatory action and supported the Teaching Regulation Agency to prohibit individuals from being involved in education, including where there are substantiated concerns about their extremist views or activities. The Department has also developed a new online form to allow for concerns regarding extremism within the education sector to be reported directly to the Department, to complement our existing counter-extremism helpline.</p><p>The Department also continues to update the Educate Against Hate website, which brings together the best advice, support and resources available for parents, teachers and school leaders, to help them protect young people from extremism and radicalisation.</p><p>The Department continues to fund, with the Home Office, a network of Prevent Education Officers, who provide expertise and support directly to schools and teachers on Prevent implementation.</p><p>The Department has also worked with Ofsted to further strengthen their inspection framework to ensure that all schools are helping to prepare children for life in modern Britain, including through their requirement to promote our shared values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and respect and tolerance of those with other faiths and beliefs.</p>
