This includes a range of monetisable and non-monetisable benefits and costs to ensure we capture all sources of potential economic value and cost. We will also want to consider carefully the impact of any of these options on students from disadvantaged backgrounds and those with disabilities in our assessments.</p><p>This assessment is ongoing and is part of a wider, cross-government exercise on considering value for money of EU programmes.</p><p>Ultimately, any decisions about our participation in the Erasmus+ programme will also be a matter for wider negotiations about our future relationship with the EU.</p>

In the majority of cases, local authorities typically charge a fee to the schools and academies within a private finance initiative (PFI) contract in respect of local authority management of the PFI contract. The Department does not hold details on these fees. For further information, please contact the relevant local authority.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Maintained nursery schools (MNSs) make a valuable contribution to improving the lives of some of our most disadvantaged children. There is a presumption against their closure. This does not mean that they can never close, but if they do, any replacement provision must be of equal quality, preserve expertise and be more accessible and convenient for parents.</p><p>Whether or not a MNS closes is a matter for local authorities, but the presumption against their closure includes a duty on local authorities to assess whether the alternative provision available is of equal or greater quality. Closure arrangements, such as the transfer of children and staff, are for local authorities to manage and the Department for Education is not involved in them.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government announced the Teachers’ Student Loan Reimbursement scheme in October 2017, fulfilling our manifesto commitment to help new teachers stay in the profession by forgiving their student loan repayments. The scheme is a pilot that is testing the impact of offering this incentive on teacher retention. It is aimed at early career teachers of languages and science who qualified since 2013/14, and is available in specific local authorities. Information on the scheme is available here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/guidance/teachers-student-loan-reimbursement-guidance-for-teachers-and-schools" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/guidance/teachers-student-loan-reimbursement-guidance-for-teachers-and-schools</a>.</p><p>The scheme has been designed in this way because retention is most challenging early in teachers' careers, and because science and languages are in high demand by schools.</p><p>The local authorities where teachers’ student loan reimbursement applies have high need for teachers. This is determined by the 'Defining Achieving Excellence Areas' methodology, available here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/defining-achieving-excellence-areas-methodology" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/defining-achieving-excellence-areas-methodology</a>.</p><p>High need areas not included in the scheme are in the control group, which will enable the Department to conduct a robust evaluation.</p>

This can include the provision of deficit funding, issuing a financial notice to improve or, in the most serious cases, termination of the Funding Agreement.</p><p>Where we have provided deficit funding as part of this process, this information is reflected in trusts’ accounts. Attached is a document setting out deficit funding information for the most recent year available, financial year 2017-18. The department records deficit funding by the academy that funding is associated with and this is also reflected in the attached document.</p><p>As of March 2018, the total number of academies for which deficit funding was agreed in financial year 2017-18, reflects less than 1% of all open academies, and less than 0.2% of the total funding allocated to academies for the 2017-18 academic year.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We are keen for funding allocated through the schools’ block to be passed on to schools, which is why as part of the introduction of the national funding formula (NFF), we made the decision to ring-fence this funding from 2018-19 onwards. However, in recognition of the importance of local flexibility, we have allowed local authorities to transfer of up to 0.5% out of the schools funding block of the dedicated schools grant to the high needs funding block, with the agreement of their schools forum. We produced an equalities impact assessment alongside the NFF, which considered potential impacts on children with protected characteristics, which can be accessed at: <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/648520/NFF_Equalities_Impact-Assessment.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/648520/NFF_Equalities_Impact-Assessment.pdf</a>.</p><p>Exceptionally, local authorities can apply for transfers outside these rules. Within the schools revenue funding operational guide (paragraph 138): <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/pre-16-schools-funding-guidance-for-2019-to-2020" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/pre-16-schools-funding-guidance-for-2019-to-2020</a>, we set out what evidence we expect a local authority to present to their schools forum to support any proposals to transfer funding from the schools block.</p><p>In submitting an exceptional case to transfer funding from the schools block, local authorities have to carry out an assessment of the equalities implications of their proposal. These equalities assessments, the published equalities impact assessment (link above) and the quality of the evidence provided by local authorities are all taken into account in the evaluation of exceptional cases put forward by local authorities.</p><p> </p>
