star this property answer text <p>Tackling poverty will always be a priority for the government. We have lifted 400,000 people out of absolute poverty since 2010 and income inequality has fallen.</p><p>While schools alone cannot solve the challenges faced by many disadvantaged families at home, they can address barriers to learning when a child is at school. We support the provision of nutritious food in schools. This ensures pupils are well nourished, develop healthy eating habits and can concentrate and learn. The department provides free school meals support to 1.1 million of the most disadvantaged pupils. This saves families hundreds of pounds each year.</p><p>The pupil premium has provided school leaders with more than £15.6 billion since 2011 to focus on support for disadvantaged pupils. We expect to spend another £2.4 billion this year. School leaders are free to use this additional grant in any way they choose to benefit their pupils. We know that schools sometimes use the funding to help put their disadvantaged pupils in a receptive state of mind to learn by providing breakfast, items of school uniform, equipment, emotional support, and homework clubs. This enables every child to realise their potential.</p>

If a child’s absence reaches a level of concern, the school will wish to raise this with the parents and the local authority in the best interest of the child’s education. Schools have a duty to inform the local authority of any child who fails to attend school regularly. School and local authorities should consider the individual circumstances of each case and take the appropriate course of action to ensure the child receives consistent education.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
