Select female from the sex drop box and, once having done this, young adults and adults to establish women. Offence classification can be found in both the Offence Type and Offence group boxes, depending on which categorisation is required here.</p><p> </p><p>Court proceedings data for 2018 are planned for publication on 16 May 2019, with data for 2019 planned for publication in May 2020.</p><p> </p><p>Our vision, as set out in our Female Offender Strategy, is to see fewer women coming into the criminal justice system and a greater proportion managed successfully in the community. To achieve this, we have invested £5m to support community provision for female offenders and women at risk of offending.</p><p> </p><p>There is persuasive evidence showing community sentences, in certain circumstances, are more effective than short custodial sentences in reducing reoffending. The MoJ study ‘The impact of short custodial sentences, community orders and suspended sentence orders on re-offending’ published in 2015 found that over a 1-year follow up period, a higher proportion of people re-offended having been sentenced to custody of under 12 months without supervision on release than other similar people given community orders.</p><p> </p><p>Unless we tackle the underlying causes of offending, we cannot protect the public from being victims of crime. Effective community orders can address offenders’ behaviour, answer their mental health and alcohol or drug misuse needs, and provide reparation for the benefit of the wider community.</p>

The international comparisons studies that the Department participates in assess pupils’ performance in reading, mathematics and science.</p><p> </p><p>The proportion of pupils in state-funded schools taking the EBacc combination of subjects has increased from 22% in 2010 to 38% in 2018. In particular, the proportion of pupils taking history or geography has increased from 48% to 78%.</p><p> </p><p>A Sutton Trust report, available at <a href="https://www.suttontrust.com/research-paper/changing-the-subject/" target="_blank">https://www.suttontrust.com/research-paper/changing-the-subject/</a>, shows that pupils in 300 schools which had increased EBacc take up were more likely to achieve good GCSEs in maths and English, and that pupils eligible for the pupil premium also benefited. A study by the Centre for Longitudinal Studies, available at <a href="https://cls.ucl.ac.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/CLS-WP-201711-Incentivising-specific-combinations-of-subjects-does-it-make-any-difference-to-university-access.pdf" target="_blank">https://cls.ucl.ac.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/CLS-WP-201711-Incentivising-specific-combinations-of-subjects-does-it-make-any-difference-to-university-access.pdf</a>, found that studying the EBacc combination of GCSE subjects increases the likelihood that a pupil will stay on in full-time education.</p><p>The latest Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) results for 2015 showed that our 15 year olds continue to perform significantly above the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) average in science, at the OECD average for mathematics, and, for the first time, above the OECD average in reading.

star this property answer text <p>All schools are required by the law to develop and publish a behaviour policy. The Department for Education produces guidance for head teachers and school staff on developing school behaviour policy and explains the powers members of staff have to maintain discipline in the classroom. The full guidance can be viewed at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/488034/Behaviour_and_Discipline_in_Schools_-_A_guide_for_headteachers_and_School_Staff.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/488034/Behaviour_and_Discipline_in_Schools_-_A_guide_for_headteachers_and_School_Staff.pdf</a>.</p><p> </p><p>In 2016, the Government commissioned behaviour expert Tom Bennett to conduct an independent review on behaviour management in schools. His report ‘Creating a culture’, published in 2017, focused on leadership, culture and systems used to tackle disruptive pupil behaviour, and provides practical advice for head teachers about creating a school culture that prevents low level disruption, maintains good discipline and promotes pupils’ education, focus and wellbeing. The full report can be viewed at: <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/602487/Tom_Bennett_Independent_Review_of_Behaviour_in_Schools.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/602487/Tom_Bennett_Independent_Review_of_Behaviour_in_Schools.pdf</a>.</p><p> </p><p>Building on this review the Department announced a £10 million investment to support schools and teachers to share best practice and knowledge on behaviour management and classroom management. As part of this Tom Bennett, has been appointed our lead Behaviour Adviser, supporting the Department to set up and run these new behaviour support networks.</p><p> </p><p>Most recently, as part of our response to the Timpson review of school exclusion, published on 7 May 2019, the Department committed to revising guidance which offers clearer, more consistent guidance on managing behaviour, the use of in-school units and the sorts of circumstances where it may appropriate to use exclusion.
