star this property answer text <p>The Department’s Mental Health and Behaviour guidance includes links to sources of information and support, including on how to respond to bereavement and other traumatic events. This includes MindEd, which the Government has funded to provide online advice and training on mental health for all professionals working with children and young people. Information on MindEd is available here: <a href="https://www.minded.org.uk/" target="_blank">https://www.minded.org.uk/</a>.</p><p>The Department has also provided advice to schools on how to provide access to high quality school-based counselling, available here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/counselling-in-schools" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/counselling-in-schools</a>.</p><p>Where children need specialist support, it is important that schools are able to make referrals quickly. The NHS long term plan sets out how specialist mental health support will be increased, including through access to crisis care 24 hours a day by 2023/24. It also includes support for at least an additional 345,000 children and young people to access NHS funded mental health services, including through new mental health support teams linked to schools and colleges.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Since September 2014, the reformed national curriculum makes it compulsory for pupils in maintained schools to be taught a modern or classical language in Key Stage 2. The Department introduced the English Baccalaureate (EBacc) performance measure in 2010 where entry into both modern and ancient language GCSEs count towards the languages element of the EBacc.</p><p>The modern foreign languages pedagogy pilot commenced in December 2018, managed by a Centre for Excellence and run through nine school-led hubs, is aiming to improve uptake and attainment in languages at Key Stages 3 and 4, and to share best practice especially in disadvantaged areas. We have also launched a pilot project in languages undergraduate mentoring for secondary school pupils to drive up participation in the subject, specifically targeting areas of high disadvantage to extend access to languages for all pupils.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The government’s top priority is to ensure that teaching continues to be an attractive and fulfilling profession. 34,595 teacher trainees were recruited this year, an increase of 8% on 2017/18.</p><p>We have put in place a range of measures, including generous bursaries, worth up to £26,000, to encourage trainees to key subjects such as languages and physics. We also offer prestigious scholarship schemes, worth up to £28,000, in six subjects including physics, maths and languages: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/guidance/funding-initial-teacher-training-itt-academic-year-2018-to-19" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/guidance/funding-initial-teacher-training-itt-academic-year-2018-to-19</a>.</p><p>In January we launched the Teacher Recruitment and Retention Strategy. Designed collaboratively with the sector, the centrepiece of the strategy is the Early Career Framework, which will underpin a fully-funded, two-year support package for new teachers, providing them with the early career support enjoyed by other top professions.</p><p>In the strategy we committed to making it easier for great people to become teachers, including a new one-stop application service for initial teacher training. We will also launch a new Discover Teaching initiative, giving as many people as possible the opportunity to experience the opportunities that a career in teaching provides.

star this property answer text <p>Topics related to climate change are included in both the science and geography curricula and qualifications. Primary school science pupils are taught about how weather changes across the four seasons, and look at how environments can change as a result of human actions.</p><p>In secondary school, science pupils are taught about the production of carbon dioxide by human activity and the effect this has on the climate. This is expanded on in GCSE science where pupils will consider the evidence for additional anthropogenic causes of climate change. As part of GCSE geography pupils will look at the causes, consequences of and responses to extreme weather conditions and natural weather hazards.</p><p>In 2017, the Department also introduced a new environmental science A level. This will enable students to study topics that will support their understanding of climate change and how it can be tackled.</p> more like this
