star this property answer text <p>As autonomous and independent organisations, Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) determine what support services they provide to their students. Each institution will be best placed to identify the needs of their particular student body. The government places a high priority on how the particular needs of care leavers are addressed by HEIs. Many already provide all-year-round accommodation and bursaries for care leaver students. The Department for Education’s Guidance to the Office for Students (OfS), on completing 2019/20 access and participation plans, specifically identifies care leavers as a key target group whose needs HEIs should address. This is reflected in the OfS own guidance to the sector.</p><p> </p><p>The government recently launched the Care Leaver Covenant, which provides a way for organisations from the public, private and voluntary sectors – including universities – to set out and publicise what support they provide to care leavers. A number of universities have already signed the Covenant, including Leeds, Liverpool John Moores, Huddersfield and Bradford; and we will continue to work closely with the OfS to encourage all universities to sign it.</p>

star this property answer text <p>In 2017, following a full public consultation, we announced that we would introduce a new reception baseline assessment (RBA) from autumn 2020. The purpose of the RBA will be to provide the starting point of a school progress measure. This will give schools full credit for the important work that they do with all of their pupils throughout their time at primary school, regardless of their prior attainment. Unlike the current progress measure, which only runs from year 2 to year 6 and does not cover the first three years of school, the RBA will allow schools to be recognised for the crucial work that they do with their pupils in the reception year, year 1 and year 2. The short, teacher-mediated assessment will also add to a teacher’s understanding of their class when they start the reception year.</p><p>Additionally, the introduction of the RBA will enable us to remove the statutory end of key stage 1 assessments, as they will no longer be required to provide a baseline for progress measures, reducing the overall burden of the statutory assessment system on teachers and headteachers.</p>
