unstar this property answer text <p> </p><p>The Government plays no direct role in the provision of student residential accommodation, nor does it specifically fund universities to provide such accommodation. As such, this is not an area where the Government can intervene.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>However, Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and private providers of ‘halls of residence’ type accommodation are required to belong to one of two Codes of Practice. These are the Student Accommodation Code <a href="http://www.thesac.org.uk/" target="_blank">http://www.thesac.org.uk/</a></p><p> </p><p>and the Accreditation Network UK <a href="http://www.anuk.org.uk/aboutus/aboutus.asp" target="_blank">http://www.anuk.org.uk/aboutus/aboutus.asp</a>.</p><p> </p><p>These Codes of Practice protect students’ rights to safe, good quality accommodation, wherever they are studying. They outline what students can expect from their accommodation as well as their responsibilities as tenants.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Some other private providers offer student accommodation, off campus, on the basis of an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST). For students in these properties, rents would be set by the landlord at the market rent achievable for that type of accommodation. Under Section 22 of the Housing Act 1988, if an AST tenant considers the rent to be excessive, he or she could apply to the first tier tribunal for a determination of the rent. Given these protections, Government has no plans to act in this area.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>In addition, since 2012, the Key Information Set includes information on the average cost of accommodation for each HEI. This is available via the national Unistats website: <a href="https://unistats.direct.gov.uk/" target="_blank">https://unistats.direct.gov.uk/</a></p><p> </p><p><br> <br></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

answer
unstar this property answer text <p>Take-up of the early learning entitlement for three- and four-year-olds is higher than it has ever been, with 97% of three- and four-year-olds benefiting from a funded place. This figure increases to 99% of four-year-olds.</p><p> </p><p>The funded entitlement for two-year-olds was introduced in September 2013. Our latest data from local authorities at May 2014 shows that around 116,000 two-year-olds were already accessing a funded early education place.</p><p> </p><p>The Department for Education publishes the take-up of free early years childcare entitlement annually. This information is published online at:</p><p><a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/publications/provision-for-children-under-5-years-of-age-january-2014" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/publications/provision-for-children-under-5-years-of-age-january-2014</a></p><p> </p><p>The Government agrees that it is important that parents of eligible children are made aware of the entitlement, and supported to take up a place for their child. The Government is providing local authorities with information that enables them to target information about the entitlement directly to parents’ of eligible children. The Department is also working to ensure that other professionals, such as health visitors and Jobcentre Plus advisers, are able to support parent awareness of their child’s entitlements. We are also about to start a targeted marketing campaign to help raise awareness further.</p><p> </p>

answer
unstar this property answer text <p>The Department for Education has read the report and is aware of the issues and concerns raised.</p><p> </p><p>Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector, Sir Michael Wilshaw, has repeatedly made clear that Ofsted does not have a preferred teaching style. It is up to the classroom teacher to determine how they should teach. Ofsted’s judgements on teaching are predicated on whether children are learning, progressing and achieving good outcomes.</p><p> </p><p>We recognise the importance of Ofsted delivering a consistently good service across a broad remit. Sir Michael has taken a keen interest in the quality and consistency of inspections and has announced that Ofsted's inspections of schools will be brought in-house from September 2015 to enable direct control over the selection and training of additional inspectors, and more control over quality assurance.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer
unstar this property answer text <p>Local authorities are responsible for planning and securing sufficient school places for their area. 260,000 additional places have been created between May 2010 and May 2013, including 212,000 primary places, and authorities have plans to create many more places in order to meet future demand.</p><p> </p><p>The Government provides significant capital funding to support local authorities. The Department for Education has already committed £5 billion for the financial years 2011-15, and in December 2013, the Department announced a further £2.35 billion in basic need funding to support local authorities to create the additional places that will be needed by September 2017.</p><p> </p><p>Funding for free schools is additional to the basic need allocations to local authorities. To date, seven in 10 mainstream free schools have been opened in areas of basic need, and will create a total of over 50,000 places.</p><p> </p><p>Ensuring that there are enough school places for the growing population is one of the Government’s top priorities, and the Department for Education will continue to support local authorities to create sufficient school places.</p><p> </p>
