star this property answer text <p>The Department supports head teachers in using exclusion where this is warranted. There has been a increase in exclusions recently, though there are still fewer exclusions than a decade ago.</p><p>In March, the Government launched an externally-led review of exclusions practice, led by Edward Timpson CBE. The review is exploring how head teachers use exclusion, and why pupils with particular characteristics are more likely to be excluded from school. It is also considering the differences in exclusion rates across primary and secondary schools in England.</p><p>The review will report at the beginning of next year. The full terms of reference for the review can be found here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/school-exclusions-review-terms-of-reference" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/school-exclusions-review-terms-of-reference</a>.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The role of the independent review panel is to review a governing body’s decision not to reinstate a permanently excluded pupil. Where a panel considers that the decision of the governing body to uphold the exclusion is flawed it can quash the decision and require the governing body to reconsider the case. The final decision on whether to reinstate the child is with the governing body. The Government believes that schools are best placed to make that decision taking into account the wider impact of reinstatement on other pupils at the school. Where a governing body is directed to reconsider their decision but does not reinstate the pupil, the school will be expected to pay an additional financial contribution towards the costs of providing an alternative education for that pupil.</p><p>The Department believes that independent review panels provide for a quick, fair and accessible process for reviewing exclusion decisions, in a way that takes account of the rights of the wider school community.</p>

star this property answer text <p><br>Children in care are amongst the most vulnerable in our society and they should be admitted to the school that is best able to meet their needs. Since 2007, school admission authorities have been required to give looked after children highest priority in their admission arrangements. In 2012, this priority was further extended to previously looked after children.</p><p> </p><p>The government also wants to ensure that children adopted from care overseas receive equal highest priority for admission into school as those looked after or previously looked after by a local authority in England. The department is committed to amending the School Admissions Code to achieve that aim.</p><p> </p><p>The department is keen to ensure that looked after children are given parity for admission into school as soon as possible, and has asked admission authorities to use their current flexibilities in setting their own admission arrangements to grant children adopted from care overseas second highest admissions priority in their oversubscription criteria.</p><p> </p>

That is why we will be participating in the next round of The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s second Survey of Adult Skills in 2021 – an international research project that will provide invaluable information about the performance of our national skills system and how it compares internationally. Data will be collected in 2021-22 with publication of the results in 2023. As a result, the department is not currently planning to conduct a further Skills for Life Survey (which was last carried out in 2011).</p><p>The Survey of Adult Skills has very similar coverage to Skills for Life in terms of age (16 – 65), and is a direct measure of adults’ core skills in literacy, numeracy and information and communications technology, triangulated with their qualifications, employment and use of skills both within and outside of work. In addition, the data from the Survey of Adult Skills is internationally comparable, unlike Skills for Life 2011.</p><p> </p>
