star this property answer text <p>We know there are some concerns that schools could be missing out on valuable pupil premium funding following the introduction of universal infant free school meals (UIFSM) and under registration for free school meals (FSM). However, school census data shows that overall; the introduction of UIFSM has not adversely affected infant registration rates.</p><p> </p><p>We want to make it as simple as possible for schools and local authorities to determine eligibility for FSM and my department is exploring what opportunities exist in the longer term to make FSM registration processes more efficient.</p><p> </p><p>The current FSM eligibility criteria requires a claim for the meal to be made on behalf of the pupil. We know that schools and local councils have worked hard over recent years to encourage all eligible families to register for FSM, to ensure that schools receive the full amount of pupil premium funding to which they are entitled. It is possible for schools to identify these pupils, for example through their enrolment processes. We have highlighted and disseminated best practice from these schools and local councils for other schools to use, including a model registration form and guidance.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The government’s careers strategy, published on 4 December 2017, explains the importance of careers professionals to our long term plan to build a world class careers system.</p><p>The department publishes data on the number of staff in schools with the role of careers adviser, but not on independent careers advisers employed by schools.</p><p>There are 298 schools that reported employing a careers advisor in state funded schools in England, November 2017. The source of this information is the annual School Workforce Census.</p><p>Information for Wales is a matter for its devolved administration.</p><p>Schools were placed under a statutory duty to secure independent careers guidance for pupils in September 2012. Schools can retain in-house arrangements for providing careers guidance but must combine this with support from external sources to meet their legal requirements. Statutory guidance underpinning the duty is clear that this should include face-to-face guidance where it is the most suitable.</p><p>The statutory guidance encourages schools to search for qualified careers practitioners in their area on the UK Register of Career Development Professionals. Individuals providing careers development services can apply to join the register if they are professionally qualified in a career development subject to a minimum of Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) Level 6, adhere to the Career Development Institute Code of Ethics and undertake and record a minimum of 25 hours continuing professional development each year. As of June 2017 there were nearly 1,300 people on the register.</p>
