star this property answer text <p>There are no plans to update the practice guidance ‘Safeguarding children who may have been trafficked’. The revised statutory guidance ‘The care of unaccompanied asylum seeking and trafficked children’ will be published this autumn.</p><p>The training for foster carers and support workers that DfE commissioned from the Refugee Council and ECPAT enables those caring for unaccompanied and trafficked children to understand the challenges and risks facing these children, and equips participants with the knowledge and tools to respond effectively to their needs. Participants were also provided with access to an e-learning course to help recognise the needs of child and adult victims of trafficking and guidance on actions carers and professionals should take to identify and safeguard victims.</p><p>Foster carers and support workers attended training courses located in 48 local authorities (see list below). Training was not limited to carers from those authorities.</p><p>The forthcoming safeguarding strategy for unaccompanied asylum seeking and refugee children will address the need for any additional training required by foster carers and support workers to care for children who are, or might be, victims of human trafficking and exploitation.</p><p>Further to the training which has recently commissioned, the statutory guidance on ‘The care of unaccompanied asylum seeking and trafficked children’ states that “Everyone involved in the care of unaccompanied and trafficked children should be trained to recognise and understand the particular issues likely to be faced by these children. This includes recognising the indicators of trafficking as a child’s previous history or current experience of being trafficked might not be apparent on entering care.&quot;</p><p>List of local authorities where the training by ECPAT and Refugee Council was located:</p><p>Bolton</p><p>Bournemouth</p><p>Bristol</p><p>Bromley</p><p>Cambridgeshire</p><p>Camden</p><p>Cheshire East</p><p>Cornwall</p><p>Coventry</p><p>Croydon</p><p>Derbyshire</p><p>Devon</p><p>Doncaster</p><p>East Riding</p><p>Essex</p><p>Gloucestershire</p><p>Hampshire</p><p>Haringey</p><p>Harrow</p><p>Hertfordshire</p><p>Kent</p><p>Lambeth</p><p>Lancashire</p><p>Leeds</p><p>Leicester City</p><p>Leicestershire</p><p>Liverpool</p><p>Manchester</p><p>Medway</p><p>Merton</p><p>Middlesbrough</p><p>North Somerset</p><p>North Tyneside</p><p>Northumberland</p><p>Nottingham City</p><p>Oldham</p><p>Sheffield</p><p>Shropshire</p><p>Somerset</p><p>Staffordshire</p><p>Suffolk</p><p>Sunderland</p><p>Thurrock</p><p>Walsall</p><p>Warrington</p><p>West Sussex</p><p>Wiltshire</p><p>Worcestershire</p>

star this property answer text <p>School libraries play an important role in encouraging pupils to read for pleasure. We believe that it should be for schools to decide whether to provide and maintain a library service for their pupils.</p><p>Head teachers do recognise the role libraries can play in improving young people’s literacy, and ensure that suitable library facilities are provided. It is also up to schools to decide how they run their library. While many head teachers, especially those in secondary schools, choose to employ a qualified librarian, this is not a statutory requirement.</p><p>We do not collect data on school library provision. However, the Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS) indicated in 2011 that 92% of pupils in Year 5 in England were attending a school where there was a library. This was above the international average of 86%.</p> more like this
