star this property answer text <p>86% of schools in England are good or outstanding.</p><p>The Department has committed £7 billion to create new school places between 2015 and 2021, the vast majority of which are being created in the best existing schools or through good new schools. The Department is on track to create 1 million places this decade, the largest increase in school capacity in at least two generations.</p><p>Of the mainstream free schools approved between 2014 and 2017, 86% have been in areas where there was a need for more school places. 84% of free schools with inspection reports published by the end of May are rated good or outstanding.</p><p> </p><p>98% of grammar schools are also good or outstanding and the Department wants more disadvantaged pupils to be able to access a place at them. That is why it has made £100 million available through the Selective Schools Expansion Fund to create additional places, where needed, in selective schools that commit to a plan to improve access for disadvantaged children. In 2018 the Department announced 16 selective schools to be funded to expand, and it launched a second bidding round in 2019.</p><p>Education is a devolved matter and it is for the Welsh national assembly to decide on education in Wales.</p><p> </p>

We urge all sides to finalise swiftly the Constitutional Declaration and implement the full agreement. Our Embassy in Khartoum closely monitors the human rights situation in Sudan, and raises our concerns in meeting with the authorities on the political situation. The UK, alongside Troika partners, will continue to maintain an international spotlight on the human rights situation in order to encourage accountability and try and prevent further human rights violations. On 29 June, Troika countries issued a joint statement that called on the TMC to respect the rights of the people of Sudan to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly, permit peaceful protests, and avoid any use of violence. The Troika released a further joint statement on 18 July. This welcomed the commitment of the TMC and FFC to support an independent investigation into acts of violence, including on 3 June.</p>
