answer text <p>We launched the maths teacher exchange between England and China in March 2014. Up to 60 teachers from each country will participate in the exchange which will start in the autumn term of the next academic year. Teachers from Shanghai will be sent to English schools designated as centres of excellence for maths. We are in the process of confirming arrangements, including which teachers and schools will take part. The programme will be managed through our Maths Hubs network which will be in place by September.</p> more like this

answer text <p>We are currently working with 221 schools in the Priority School Building Programme (PSBP). We will have commenced work with all schools by the end of 2014. Before building work can begin, plans must be drawn up, contracts negotiated and planning permission secured. Construction work has already started at 24 schools (20 under main works contracts and four under early works agreements). We expect that building work will have commenced at all schools by the end of 2016. All schools will be delivered by the end of 2017, two years earlier than originally planned.</p><p>Under Building Schools for the Future (BSF), it took three years from first planning for building works to begin. We have cut this to one year under the PSBP. Had we continued with BSF timescales, no PSBP schools would yet have started construction. The first school being rebuilt under the PSBP will open in May 2014.</p> more like this

answer text <p>These figures are not collected centrally.

Between 2011 and 2013 the AET received grant funding under grant from the Department to provide training to schools and from 2013 to 2015 is contracted to provide training to early years providers, schools and further education colleges.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>The out-of-hours term time and holiday childcare that schools provide are vital to working parents. Many parents still find that the high cost and inflexibility of childcare is a barrier to working, or increasing their working hours. The Government wants more schools to make their facilities available to the local community. The Department for Education believes that if schools open up their facilities, it can make them a valuable resource and can strengthen links with the wider community that they serve. The Department wants to encourage more schools to offer childcare between 8am to 6pm during term time and during school holidays by removing all unnecessary red tape and increasing freedoms. For example, we are removing the need for schools to have to consult when introducing community facilities and to have regard to guidance from my Rt. hon Friend the Secretary of State for Education or local authorities and we are clarifying the rules on charging for community facilities.</p> more like this
