star this property answer text <p>The Department for Education routinely collects information on pupils who are claiming free school meals. This information is published in the ‘Schools, Pupils and their Characteristics: January 2014’ Statistical First Release.[1] It is not possible to identify the number of pupils who are eligible for but are not claiming free school meals from the data the department collects.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>However, the department has published a research paper ‘Pupils not claiming free school meals: 2013’[2] which presents estimates of the numbers and proportions of pupils who are entitled to receive free school meals but are not claiming. The paper compares registration rates for children aged between 4 and 15 and highlights regions and local authorities where under-registration rates are high. Figures from this paper show the under-registration rate for Lancashire local authority is 6% (1,600 pupils).</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong><br> </strong></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>[1] <a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/schools-pupils-and-their-characteristics-january-2014" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/statistics/schools-pupils-and-their-characteristics-january-2014</a></p><p>[2] <a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/publications/pupils-not-claiming-free-school-meals-2013" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/publications/pupils-not-claiming-free-school-meals-2013</a></p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>For the academic year 2015/16, the Department for Education has maintained the base rate of funding for 16- to 19-year-olds in schools and colleges at £4,000 for full-time 16- and 17-year-olds, and £3,300 for 18-year-olds. This is sufficient to fund a study programme of 600 hours, which is enough for students to take three A levels and one AS level, plus around 150 hours of enrichment or tutorial activity across each two-year course. It is for schools to determine what they offer their students, taking into account the needs and aspirations of their students as well as the overall budget available to the school.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Academies, including free schools, university technical colleges and studio schools, have the freedom to set their own pay and conditions policies. They are therefore free to offer their teachers access to car purchase salary sacrifice schemes. Currently, 15% of all primary schools and 62% of all secondary schools are academies.</p><p> </p><p>In local authority maintained schools, changes to the statutory pay and conditions of teachers must first be referred to the independent School Teachers’ Review Body (STRB). Recent STRB referrals have focused on fundamental reforms to the overall pay and conditions framework for teachers. Following the STRB’s recommendations, these reforms have given schools much greater freedom to attract and retain the best teachers and to reward individuals in line with their contribution to improving their pupils’ achievements.</p><p> </p><p>The demands on the STRB’s time and resources in the reform process mean that the government has had to make hard decisions on the issues it refers to STRB. In light of the focus of the important referrals above, the Department for Education has not prioritised revisions to the existing salary sacrifice arrangements. Future referrals to the STRB will be a matter for the next administration.</p>
