In addition, generous transitional protections were put in place to ensure no child will lose their eligibility for FSM during the change to the new criteria.</p><p> </p><p>Under the benefits-based criteria, to be eligible to receive FSM, a pupil or their parent must be in receipt of any one of the qualifying benefits and must make a claim to the school for FSM. The qualifying criteria includes benefits for both out of work and low-earning families. The full eligibility criteria is attached and also available here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/apply-free-school-meals" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/apply-free-school-meals</a>.</p><p> </p>

answer text <p>The Government has a long-established approach to identifying, developing and managing collaborative business relationships. For example, the Government recognises the importance of managing its relationships with strategic suppliers, on a cross-government basis, by observing their performance in the delivery of public services and monitoring financial health.</p><p>This year, the Government introduced a new approach to the monitoring and management of strategic suppliers through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the government and each of our strategic suppliers. The approach of using an MOU reflects the Government’s now well-developed relationships with, and understanding of, its strategic suppliers. Under this new approach, strategic suppliers will agree to provide the government with the information it needs to monitor and manage risks across its strategic supplier base, with the full cooperation of industry.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Today's security climate is challenging, with the threats faced by the United Kingdom increasing in scale, diversity and complexity. However, Her Majesty's Government does not believe that the risk of nuclear war is greater today than it was during the Cold War.</p><p>While the operation of an independent, minimum, credible nuclear deterrent continues to be necessary to protect the United Kingdom from the most extreme threats to our national security and way of life, the UK has taken a number of unilateral actions that build confidence and reduce international tensions. Our negative security assurances, as set out in the 2015 Strategic Defence and Security Review, are designed to give Non-Nuclear Weapons States in compliance with the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty confidence that nuclear weapons will not be used against them. Further, since 1994, UK Trident missiles have not been targeted at any State; our Vanguard class submarines are at several days' notice to fire; only the Prime Minister has the authority to launch nuclear weapons maintaining political control at all times; and the UK has been transparent about its nuclear capability, including missile and warhead numbers.</p><p>The Government is committed to the long-term goal of a world without nuclear weapons and continues to work internationally, within the framework of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, towards achieving the conditions in which all nuclear weapons possessor states are willing to relinquish their nuclear weapons.</p>

answer text <p>The number of state-funded students in scope for the 16-18 Maths measures and their attainment, split by disadvantage status[1] and prior attainment[2], can be found in tables 1-4, attached. These figures are for 2017/18. This expands on published data within the Department’s statistical release, available here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/a-level-and-other-16-to-18-results-2017-to-2018-revised" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/a-level-and-other-16-to-18-results-2017-to-2018-revised</a>.</p><p>The number of state-funded students in scope for the 16-18 maths and English progress measures and their attainment, split by disadvantage status, prior attainment, and the type of qualification the student sat in their KS4 study[3], [4] are available in tables 5-8, attached. These figures are for 2017/18.</p><p>Disaggregating the published figures has necessitated a slightly different methodology to calculate the number of students with positive progress. In some cases this leads to a negligible difference when totals are compared to the published data within the Department’s statistical release[5].</p><p>For figures in 2016/17, tables 1-8 have been replicated in tables 9-16, attached.</p><p> </p><p>[1] Disadvantage status is taken from the census recorded completed for that student’s final year of key stage 4 study.</p><p>[2] In previous PQs 251400–251406, prior attainment was given based on three groups (‘entry level or fail’, ‘below grade 3/D’ and ‘grade 3/D’). In the attached tables with information relating to prior attainment points, these points are based on the student’s highest prior attainment in mathematics or English. ‘Entry level or fail’ is synonymous with points 0 and 0.4. ‘Below grade 3 or D’ is synonymous with points 0.8–3.0. ‘Grade 3 or D’ is synonymous with points 4.0. This is the case for all the tables provided.</p><p>[3] ‘GCSE or equivalent’ includes students whose highest prior attainment were in a GCSE, International GCSE or level 2 certificate. Qualifications are included in this group because they are all similarly graded on a 9-1 or A*-G scale and are included as part of the condition for funding calculations. ‘Other level 2 qualifications’ includes students whose highest prior attainment was in any other level 2 qualification. This includes level 2 functional skills and free standing maths that are included as part of the condition of funding calculations. This is the case for tables 5-8 and 13-16.</p><p>[4] The methodology used means that for a small number of students any entries into maths during their 16-18 study which did not reach the grade 4/C threshold (leaving them in scope), may have led to their prior attainment being reclassified. This will have had no noticeable effect on the overall figures. Due to the methodology used to assign points to English literature and language, a small number of students may be assigned to a different qualification type. This is the case for tables 5-8 and 13-16.</p><p> </p>

answer text <p>The number of state-funded students in scope for the 16-18 Maths measures and their attainment, split by disadvantage status[1] and prior attainment[2], can be found in tables 1-4, attached. These figures are for 2017/18. This expands on published data within the Department’s statistical release, available here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/a-level-and-other-16-to-18-results-2017-to-2018-revised" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/a-level-and-other-16-to-18-results-2017-to-2018-revised</a>.</p><p>The number of state-funded students in scope for the 16-18 maths and English progress measures and their attainment, split by disadvantage status, prior attainment, and the type of qualification the student sat in their KS4 study[3], [4] are available in tables 5-8, attached. These figures are for 2017/18.</p><p>Disaggregating the published figures has necessitated a slightly different methodology to calculate the number of students with positive progress. In some cases this leads to a negligible difference when totals are compared to the published data within the Department’s statistical release[5].</p><p>For figures in 2016/17, tables 1-8 have been replicated in tables 9-16, attached.</p><p> </p><p>[1] Disadvantage status is taken from the census recorded completed for that student’s final year of key stage 4 study.</p><p>[2] In previous PQs 251400–251406, prior attainment was given based on three groups (‘entry level or fail’, ‘below grade 3/D’ and ‘grade 3/D’). In the attached tables with information relating to prior attainment points, these points are based on the student’s highest prior attainment in mathematics or English. ‘Entry level or fail’ is synonymous with points 0 and 0.4. ‘Below grade 3 or D’ is synonymous with points 0.8–3.0. ‘Grade 3 or D’ is synonymous with points 4.0. This is the case for all the tables provided.</p><p>[3] ‘GCSE or equivalent’ includes students whose highest prior attainment were in a GCSE, International GCSE or level 2 certificate. Qualifications are included in this group because they are all similarly graded on a 9-1 or A*-G scale and are included as part of the condition for funding calculations. ‘Other level 2 qualifications’ includes students whose highest prior attainment was in any other level 2 qualification. This includes level 2 functional skills and free standing maths that are included as part of the condition of funding calculations. This is the case for tables 5-8 and 13-16.</p><p>[4] The methodology used means that for a small number of students any entries into maths during their 16-18 study which did not reach the grade 4/C threshold (leaving them in scope), may have led to their prior attainment being reclassified. This will have had no noticeable effect on the overall figures. Due to the methodology used to assign points to English literature and language, a small number of students may be assigned to a different qualification type. This is the case for tables 5-8 and 13-16.</p><p> </p>
