star this property answer text <p>The Department recognises that the tapered annual allowance may contribute to decisions from National Health Service staff to retire early or limit their NHS commitments. We are listening carefully to concerns raised by senior doctors and NHS employers about the impact of the tapered annual allowance.</p><p> </p><p>In listening to concerns, the Department has sought to make available to NHS Pension Scheme members all possible flexibility under Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs legislation and the current fiscal framework for public sector pension schemes. The scope of the voluntary ‘Scheme Pays’ facility, implemented by the NHS Pension Scheme to allow scheme members to pay annual allowance charges from the value of their pension benefits rather than upfront, has been extended to cover the payment of tax charges from breaches of the tapered annual allowance. The Government keeps the impact of public sector pay and pensions policies under constant review.</p><p> </p><p>The 2015 NHS Pension Scheme is a generous and valuable part of staff reward packages and remains one of the best schemes available. As it is a career average pension scheme it delivers a fairer pension to all members compared with the previous final salary pension scheme that favoured those higher earners with higher career pay progression. Its introduction ensures that NHS staff receive financial security in retirement, and that the scheme is affordable to the taxpayer.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The draft guidance published on 25 February takes account of comments received through the public consultation and engagement with over 90 organisations, including on the right to withdraw from sex education.</p><p>The Department has no plans to make changes to the guidance published in February, except to the extent that minor corrections are necessary. The Department has committed, however, to publish a supplementary guide for schools to support them in delivering the subjects; this could include further advice on the right to withdraw if that proves necessary.</p><p>The regulations were debated in the House of Commons on 20 March and were overwhelmingly approved in a division. The Department expects the debate in the House of Lords to take place shortly. The Department is committed to conducting a review of the guidance three years after the new subjects become mandatory in September 2020, and every three years after that. The Department will also make changes sooner if there is a clear, pressing need.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Schools have an important role to play in helping equip children with the knowledge they need to make healthy choices for themselves and creating a healthy environment for children to learn and develop a lifelong habit of physical activity.</p><p> </p><p>Many Department for Education policies, some of which are already being delivered, are expected to make a direct contribution to reducing the incidence of childhood obesity, such as the introduction of universal infant free school meals, the school food standards, the addition of food education in the national curriculum, and the primary physical education (PE) and sport premium. We are not complacent however, and recognise that there is more to do.</p><p> </p><p>The doubled primary PE and sport premium provides £320 million per year to improve the quality and access to PE and sport for primary age pupils to develop healthy habits early. We have also invested significant funding in measures to increase cycling and walking to school.</p><p> </p><p>Sport England supports our efforts to engage inactive children to take up sport and physical activity by investing in programmes like the School Games and Satellite Clubs. Sport England is also providing specialist training free of charge to teachers in every secondary school in England by 2020, which will help teachers better meet the needs of all children, irrespective of their level of sporting ability, and involve them in shaping the sporting opportunities that are on offer.</p><p> </p><p>The School Food Standards provide the legislative framework to ensure schools provide children with healthy food and drink options and we are working with Public Health England to update the School Food Standards, focusing on reducing sugar consumption.</p><p> </p><p>As part of the second chapter of the Childhood Obesity Plan we are investing up to £26 million in breakfast clubs. Breakfast clubs can contribute to improved attainment, attendance and overall health and ensure that more children benefit from a healthy start to their school day.</p><p> </p><p>We have also established a £100 million healthy pupils capital fund to facilitate an improvement in children’s physical and mental health by increasing and improving access to and use of relevant facilities, such as kitchens, dining facilities, changing rooms and sports facilities.</p><p> </p><p>From September 2015, Ofsted inspectors look at how provision supports pupils’ knowledge on how to keep themselves healthy, including through exercising and healthy eating and we welcome the new inspection framework which Ofsted is currently developing for September 2019. This will consider how schools build knowledge across the whole curriculum and support pupils’ personal development more broadly, including in relation to healthy behaviours.</p>
