answer text <p>Following the ticket vending machine summit held in December with the rail industry, the industry has committed to improving and simplifying the rail ticketing system so that passengers can be confident of making the right choice when they buy their tickets from any retail outlet. As part of this, rail operators have agreed to improve the information passengers receive when buying tickets from ticket machines. The Office of Rail and Road (ORR) has also issued a Code of Practice on ticket retail information, which the industry is expected to follow. We are closely monitoring the progress the industry is making.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>Our current estimate of the cost for the tendering process is £6.63m through to June 2016. This is in line with the costs of other franchising projects, taking into account recommendations made in Richard Brown’s Review into Rail Franchising. The actual spend will be published annually in our Departmental accounts. With regard to bidders costs, the Department makes no such estimate - this is an internal matter for bidders,</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>An Academy Order was issued because the Hewett School is a failing school which Ofsted judged to require special measures in October 2014 and has had GCSE results consistently below local and national averages for the past five years. The Academy Order was issued on 25 March after consultation with the central Norwich Foundation Trust. The Government’s policy is to tackle swiftly failing schools wherever they are. We believe that the best way to secure rapid and long-term improvement at the Hewett School is for it to become an academy with the support of a strong sponsor. Inspiration Trust was the named sponsor due to its strong track record of school improvement.</p><p> </p><p>The Department for Education and Norfolk County Council meet regularly. Recently the Council’s proposals for a ‘Learning Village’ on the Hewett site have formed part of these discussions. The department has had an initial meeting with the Inspiration Trust to seek their views about the future of the land. A meeting between all three parties is scheduled later this month.</p><p> </p>
