star this property answer text <p>Supporting the teaching profession and reducing unnecessary workload which can lead to stress is an absolute priority for the Department for Education. Our response to the Workload Challenge[1] set out a comprehensive programme of action to be taken at every level in the school system, and the department will continue to do everything it can to relieve unnecessary burdens on teaching professionals.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>School employers are responsible for the health of their workforce. It is vital that they have systems in place that identify and tackle the cause of stress in their staff and provide appropriate support for them. Headteachers also have a duty to promote the safety and wellbeing of staff and to lead and manage staff with a proper regard for their wellbeing. This includes the expectation of a healthy balance between work and other commitments outside the school.</p><p> </p><p>[1] <a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/publications/workload-challenge-for-schools-government-response" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/publications/workload-challenge-for-schools-government-response</a></p><p> </p>

Employers may have to provide compensation in cases where it is shown that they have not taken measures to protect their employees from the risk of exposure to asbestos. As the employers of teaching professionals in educational establishments, it is for schools, academy trusts or governing bodies (depending on the type of school) to provide compensation to employees harmed by asbestos exposure.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>There are a number of schemes available to those who are unable to bring a claim for compensation against their employer or trace the relevant employers' liability insurer, which can support those who may have experienced this.

star this property answer text <p>We are not able, in the time available, to assess how many schools have received the pupil premium in total since its introduction in 2011 as this data is not held in the format requested. However, in the 2013-14 financial year, 19,986 schools attracted funding due to having one or more pupils who had been registered for free school meals at any point in the previous six years. There were also 1,349 schools (maintained special schools, special academies, pupil referral units (PRUs) or Alternative Provision academies) for which the local authority received any pupil premium funding due, in line with the conditions of grant. These figures do not take into account schools receiving pupil premium plus for looked after children, as this funding was also allocated to local authorities to distribute.</p><p> </p><p>The gap in pupils achieving Level 4 or above in key stage 2 reading and mathematics has narrowed from 19.3 to 16.2 percentage points between 2011 and 2013. The gap in pupils achieving at least five good GCSEs including English and mathematics has narrowed from 27.4 to 26.7 percentage points over the same period.</p><p> </p><p>Whilst it is too soon to see significant evidence of the impact of the policy on the national attainment statistics, our assessments of the policy show an improving picture. Ofsted concurs with this view, and in its most recent report of July 2014 stated that schools are using the funding more effectively than ever before to raise the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils, and that gaps in many schools are beginning to close, in some cases quite quickly.</p><p> </p>
