unstar this property answer text <p>The government takes seriously its role in promoting inclusion and equality in education settings and the Equality Act 2010 (together with Part 3 of the Children and Families Act 2014) is a foundation stone on which our special educational needs (SEN) and disability system sits. The Equality Act requires all schools (whether maintained or academy) to produce an accessibility plan. These plans are about ensuring that all aspects of school life are accessible to disabled pupils. The Act also requires local authorities to produce accessibility strategies with the same aims as the school-level plan, but with different coverage.</p><p>We have funded the Schools Development Support Agency, working with pdnet to deliver a contract to improve knowledge, skills and capability of the school workforce. Pdnet standards have been developed for the early years, schools and post 16 settings, along with level 1 training for schools raising awareness of physical disabilities. Further information about pdnet is available on <a href="http://pdnet.org.uk/" target="_blank">http://pdnet.org.uk/</a>.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>Ofsted has a duty to consider pupils’ behaviour and safety as part of its section 5 school inspections. While it is not Ofsted’s role to investigate individual cases, inspectors always look at exclusions on school inspections and ask head teachers about trends and reasons for exclusions. The issue of exclusion is also covered as part of the joint Ofsted/Care Quality Commission inspections of local authorities’ effectiveness in identifying and meeting the needs of children and young people who have special educational needs or disabilities. Inspectors will report on overall levels of exclusions, and may comment when there is a specific or recurring trend.</p> more like this

answer
unstar this property answer text <p>The Department has worked with organisations such as the James Dyson Foundation and the Royal Academy of Engineering to reform the design and technology (D&amp;T) A level, GCSE and curriculum. The content emphasises the iterative design processes at the heart of modern industry practice. There is also more mathematical and science content that students must use and relate closely to D&amp;T, and a much greater use of design equipment such as 3D printers and robotics. Under the new national curriculum, reformed in 2014, D&amp;T remains a compulsory subject in all maintained schools from Key Stage 1 to 3. Maintained schools are also required to offer it as a subject at Key Stage 4. Academies can use the national curriculum as a benchmark for what they teach. The D&amp;T GCSE counts towards the Progress 8 secondary accountability measure.</p><p>The new qualification will prepare students for further study and careers in design. To ensure the subject is taught well, the Department supports recruitment of D&amp;T teachers through bursaries of up to £12,000 for eligible candidates.</p><p>For post-16 students, the Government is introducing T Levels, based on learning from the best international examples. Once fully introduced, many of the new T Level programmes will focus on core science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) occupations, including in the engineering and manufacturing sectors. Designed by employers, T Levels will give students access to high quality technical study programmes, which will prepare them for employment and higher level study in STEM occupations.</p>

answer
unstar this property answer text <p>The core academic subjects that make up the English Baccalaureate (EBacc) at GCSE are those which the Russell Group says open more doors to more degrees at A level. Not studying the EBacc prior to age 16 is likely to close down options early by precluding pupils from taking those subjects any further (for example, at A level). They provide a sound basis for a variety of careers beyond the age of 16. These subjects also enrich pupils’ studies and give them a broad general knowledge that will enable them to participate in and contribute to society.</p><p> </p><p>There is evidence that suggests that subject choice at A level directly impacts the under-representation of lower socio-economic groups at high status universities, and that these gaps can be closed by reducing differences in attainment and subject choice at GCSE. The EBacc is therefore key to removing the barriers to ensure that all children are given the same chances through education to succeed.</p><p> </p><p>Since the introduction of the EBacc the proportion of pupils taking this combination of subjects has risen from 22% in 2010 to 38% this year. This includes welcome increases in the proportion of pupils taking EBacc science (up from 63% in 2010 to 95% this year) and history or geography (up from 48% in 2010 to 78% this year). The Department is supporting increases which will further increase the take up of languages, launching a range of initiatives, including a languages Pedagogy Pilot Programme, a Mandarin Excellence Programme, and a package of generous financial incentives to boost teacher supply.</p>

answer
unstar this property answer text <p>My right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State has set out his ambition to halve by 2028 the proportion of five-year-olds who do not achieve the communication and reading skills they need to thrive. On 14 November 2018, he hosted a summit on the ‘home learning environment’, bringing together nearly 100 businesses, charities and public sector organisations to explore longer term opportunities to support parents with early learning at home. At the summit he announced £6.5 million for voluntary and community sector organisations who work with families of young children to support early language development, helping to address and support concerns when they can have the most impact; and to improve the early years education of children with special educational needs and disabilities.</p><p>This builds on the ambitious social mobility action plan ‘Unlocking Talent, Fulfilling Potential’, published in December 2017, which set out £100 million of investment. This includes £50 million to develop more high quality school-based nursery provision to increase the number of good early years places for disadvantaged children; and a £50 million investment in professional development through English Hubs, professional development for early years practitioners, and a dedicated what works fund.</p>
