star this property answer text <p>My right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for Education, has not made any formal assessment of the implications of this research.</p><p>The department has made a big difference to support for pupils with dyslexia through our clear focus on literacy, particularly the use of phonics, and improving initial teacher training and continuing professional development for pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). We have also provided substantial investment in additional training and resources for the school workforce, including materials relating to autism, dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties.</p><p>The SEND Reforms introduced the ‘plan, do, review’ graduated approach for pupils on SEND support so that teachers have a focus on ensuring that pupils have the right support to reach their full potential.</p><p>We recently announced significant extra funding for children and young people with more complex needs. As part of our school funding package, which will provide an extra £14 billion over the next 3 years, we are increasing high needs funding by £780 million next year, which is an increase of 12% on the amount available this year. This brings the total to be spent on supporting those with the most complex needs to £7.2 billion.</p><p>Although this additional funding will help, we recognise that more needs to be done to ensure this investment is working as well as it can for young people and that we have a sustainable SEND system in future. That is why the government recently announced a review of SEND.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Careers education is steadily improving across the country following publication of our careers strategy in December 2017.</p><p>We publish statutory guidance for schools and colleges, which sets out what they should do to provide independent careers guidance for year 8-13 students. This includes the requirement, commonly known as the Baker Clause, for schools to publish a policy statement, showing the opportunities for technical education and apprenticeship providers to talk to all year 8-13 pupils.</p><p>When we have found instances of non-compliance with these statutory duties, we have taken action. In January 2019, the former Minister for Apprenticeships and Skills (Anne Milton), my right hon. Friend for Guilford, wrote to 5 of the largest multi-academy trusts that had not yet published arrangements for provider access on all their academy websites to ask them to act to comply with the law. We also encourage providers to contact us if they are experiencing difficulties or have been blocked from going into schools, and we address this in such cases by writing to individual schools.</p>
