star this property answer text <p>All schools must comply with strict building and fire safety regulations. It has always been the case that where a fire risk assessment required for any new building recommends sprinklers are installed to keep children safe, they must be fitted.</p><p>As not all new schools are commissioned by the Department for Education we do not hold data on the number of all new schools that have been built with or without sprinklers installed.</p><p>The Department holds information on schools managed centrally by the Education and Skills Funding Agency, under the Priority Schools Building Programme (PSBP).

As schools under phase two of the PSBP are still in the early design stage, it is not yet clear which may require sprinklers at this time.</p><p><ins class="ministerial">The number of schools in phase one with sprinklers installed had previously been reported as 75. However, further analysis of the data has confirmed that a joint project between two primary schools in Wiltshire had inadvertently been counted as two schools, when they should only have been counted once. Therefore, we can confirm that the correct number of schools fitted with sprinklers, under phase one of PSBP, is 74</ins></p><p>Until recently, schools developed under the Free Schools programme were managed by the individual Free School proposer groups, via their appointed building contractors. Due to this, the Department does not hold information on the number of Free School buildings with and without sprinklers installed.</p><p>All schools must have robust safety plans to follow in the event of a fire and have very strong safety features. This includes the fact that they are not occupied overnight and are generally low rise with multiple exit routes.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government takes the safety of pupils and staff seriously. All schools have to follow strict fire safety regulations, including having a Fire Risk Assessment, designed to ensure that they are as safe as possible and well prepared in the event of a fire.</p><p>Where sprinklers are deemed necessary to keep pupils and staff safe, following an assessment of risk at the design stage, or to meet local planning requirements, they must be fitted. All new school building projects must comply with Building Regulations, including on fire safety, and this must be independently checked by Building Control or an Approved Inspector before buildings are occupied.</p><p>The Department does not collect data on the number of school fires. The Home Office publishes fire statistics on GOV.UK - <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/fire-statistics" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/fire-statistics</a>. These are taken from data supplied by the Fire and Rescue Service (FRS) and includes information on educational establishments.</p><p>As not all new schools are commissioned by the Department, we do not hold data on the number of all new schools that have been built with or without sprinklers installed. We do hold information on the centrally funded Priority Schools Building Programme (PSBP). Of the 32 schools rebuilt in phase one of the PSBP in London, two include sprinkler systems. We do not hold comprehensive data on the number of Free Schools fitted with sprinklers as schools developed under the Free Schools programme were originally managed by the individual free school proposer groups.</p><p>The Department does not liaise directly with the FRS, including the London Fire Brigade, in the design of new school buildings. The Department commissions the design and build of schools under its central programmes and the FRS may be consulted by Building Control officers or contractors on individual projects whenever necessary.</p><p>Alongside the rest of Government, the Department will take forward findings from the independent review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety, and from the public inquiry into the Grenfell Tower fire.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The English Baccalaureate (EBacc) is not compulsory; however, the Government wants children to benefit from an academic curriculum that keeps their options open for future study, training and work. By September 2022, the Department aims for 75% of Year 10 pupils in state-funded mainstream schools to be studying GCSEs in the EBacc combination of subjects.</p><p>The EBacc, whilst comprehensive, has been designed so pupils continue to study additional subjects that reflect their individual interests and strengths. On average, pupils in state-funded schools enter nine GCSEs and equivalent qualifications. As the EBacc covers seven GCSEs, or eight for those pupils taking triple science, this leaves room for other choices, including arts subjects.</p><p>At Key Stage 4, pupils in maintained schools must be offered the opportunity to study at least one subject in the arts 'entitlement' area.</p><p>Arts and music will remain available to all pupils. £300 million of ring-fenced funding in music hubs is being invested between 2016-20. Other programmes that continue to be funded include the Music and Dance Scheme, National Youth Music Organisations, ‘In Harmony’ and Art and Design Saturday clubs.</p>
