star this property answer text <p>Ofsted and Care Quality Commission inspections of the effectiveness of special educational needs and disability (SEND) services, which began in 2016 and will see all 152 local areas inspected by 2021, are providing evidence of progress.</p><p> </p><p>The most effective areas have strong strategic leadership, and we are beginning to see positive results on the ground in relation to joint working between education, health and care. For example, in Wiltshire’s inspection ‘senior leaders in the local area from education, health and social care are working together constructively to deliver and improve services for children and young people who have [SEND].’ In West Sussex ‘local area leaders have established strong and well-conceived joint commissioning arrangements. For example, the majority of health services that support children and young people who have SEND are commissioned jointly by the local authority and clinical commissioning groups who work within the local area.’</p><p>We are particularly encouraged by local authorities and the clinical commissioning group being pro-active in working with partners, including families, to take forward learning from the inspections, particularly where inspectors have identified concerns with services.</p><p>More than 98% of statements of special educational needs were reviewed by the 31 March 2018 deadline for introducing Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans. Moving across to EHC plans should enable those children, young people and their families to feel the benefit of the reforms and to receive a more joined-up approach to meeting their needs and improving their outcomes.</p><p>A survey of over 13,000 parents and young people who received an EHC plan in 2015 found that 66% were satisfied with the EHC plan planning process. 73% agreed their EHC plan had led to the child getting the help they needed and 67% agreed their plan improved the child or young person’s experience of education.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We trust schools to manage their own budgets and the vast majority are operating with a cumulative surplus, with only a small percentage having a deficit. The latest published overall figures for England’s schools show 2,819 academy trusts (94.5%) and 14,645 local authority maintained schools (91%) reporting a cumulative surplus or breaking even, against 165 academy trusts and 1,461 maintained schools reporting a deficit. The percentage of maintained schools in deficit has remained stable compared to 2010, as has the total balance held by maintained schools, at £1.7 billion.</p><p> </p><p>We are providing an additional £1.3 billion to our schools across 2018-19 and 2019-20, over and above previous plans. Core funding for schools and high needs will rise from almost £41 billion in 2017-18 to £42.4 billion this year and £43.5 billion in 2019-20. This will maintain school and high needs funding in real terms per pupil over the next two years.</p><p> </p><p>Information on the number of schools in deficit in Wales is a devolved matter, and therefore for the Welsh government to answer.</p>

The first tab provides information on how to look up the NFF for a specific school and the NFF data for all schools. The spreadsheet and NFF data is also available on GOV.UK at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/644809/Impact_of_the_schools_NFF.xlsx" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/644809/Impact_of_the_schools_NFF.xlsx</a>.</p><p> </p><p>The Department has always been clear that local authorities remain responsible for determining schools’ final budget allocations in these years, in consultation with their schools. All local formulae must contain a Minimum Funding Guarantee (MFG) to limit the losses schools can see year on year. Local authorities have had the flexibility to set the MFG between -1.5% and +0.5% per pupil.</p><p>The Department understands that many local authorities have decided that the right thing to do is to replicate the national funding formula locally, including setting the MFG to pass on the minimum 0.5% per pupil increase in full to their schools. We support and encourage this. A school’s overall budget may also decline if it has fewer pupils year on year.</p><p>The Welsh Government is responsible for schools funding in Wales.</p>

These include settlement unit advancements at various stages in different planning processes, as well as the construction and establishment of both new settlements and settlement outposts. According to the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics in 2015 there were 1,962 new construction starts in settlements, in 2016 there were 3,069, and in 2017 there were 1,626. No data is currently available for 2018.</p><p>According to data from the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, an average of 35 Palestinian structures each month were targeted for demolition by the Israeli authorities between January and May this year. In 2017, 35 structures per month were targeted; in 2016, 91 per month, and in 2015, 47 per month.</p><p>We regularly make representations to the Israeli authorities about both settlements and demolitions. The Minister for the Middle East and North Africa raised our concerns about new settlement announcements and demolitions with the Israeli authorities during his visit to Israel on 30-31 May. The Foreign Secretary also raised the proposed demolition of Khan Al-Ahmar with Prime Minister Netanyahu on 6 June.</p>
