star this property answer text <p>The department has taken significant steps to further strengthen academies’ accountability. This is reflected in the year on year updates to the Academies Financial Handbook which strengthen accountability and transparency in the sector. The department introduced new rules in April 2019 for the declaration or approval of related party transactions. Our requirements are the most robust processes for related party transactions in any sector in the country.</p><p>The level of transparency for academies is higher than for local authority schools. The vast majority of trusts operate with a cumulative surplus and at the same time, over half a million pupils now study in ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ sponsored academies that typically replaced underperforming local authority maintained schools.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>There is not a range of non-GCSE qualifications taught at key stage 4 designed specifically for pupils with special educational needs (SEN). Pupils should have access to a broad and balanced curriculum. The national curriculum inclusion statement states that teachers should set high expectations for every pupil, whatever their prior attainment. Teachers should use appropriate assessment to set targets which are deliberately ambitious. Potential areas of difficulty should be identified and addressed at the outset. Lessons should be planned to address potential areas of difficulty and to remove barriers to pupil achievement. In many cases, such planning will mean that pupils with SEN and disabilities will be able to study the full national curriculum.</p><p> </p><p>The department holds information on entries to non-GCSE qualifications included in the school performance tables, analysis of which is provided below.</p><p> </p><p>The percentage of schools (mainstream[1]) with at least one pupil at the end of key stage 4[2] entering[3] non-GCSE qualifications[4], in each of the last 5 years, is shown in the table below:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>2017/18[5]</p></td><td><p>2016/17</p></td><td><p>2015/16</p></td><td><p>2014/15</p></td><td><p>2013/14</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Number of mainstream schools</p></td><td><p>3,175</p></td><td><p>3,153</p></td><td><p>3,113</p></td><td><p>3,069</p></td><td><p>3,037</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Percentage of mainstream schools</p></td><td rowspan="3"><p>95</p></td><td rowspan="3"><p>97</p></td><td rowspan="3"><p>99</p></td><td rowspan="3"><p>99</p></td><td rowspan="3"><p>99</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>with at least one pupil entering</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>a non-GCSE qualification (%)</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p> </p><p>The percentage of mainstream school pupils entering at least one non-GCSE qualification, in each of the last 5 years, is shown in the table below:</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>2017/18</p></td><td><p>2016/17</p></td><td><p>2015/16</p></td><td><p>2014/15</p></td><td><p>2013/14</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Pupil cohort</p></td><td><p>513,356</p></td><td><p>517,756</p></td><td><p>530,580</p></td><td><p>543,314</p></td><td><p>548,290</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Percentage of mainstream pupils who sat</p></td><td rowspan="2"><p>40</p></td><td rowspan="2"><p>52</p></td><td rowspan="2"><p>72</p></td><td rowspan="2"><p>71</p></td><td rowspan="2"><p>68</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>at least one non-GCSE subject (%)</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>Tables showing the 10 most entered non-GCSE qualifications in all state-funded mainstream schools are included in the attached spreadsheet.</p><p> </p><p>[1] State-funded mainstream schools include academies, free schools, city technology colleges and further education colleges with provision for 14 to 16 year olds. They exclude state-funded special schools, independent schools, independent special schools, non-maintained special schools, hospital schools, pupil referral units and alternative provision (AP) (including pupil referral units, AP free schools and AP academies as well as state-funded AP placements in other institutions).</p><p>[2] Pupils are identified as being at the end of key stage 4 if they were on roll at the school and in year 11 at the time of the January school census for that year. Age is calculated as at 31 August for that year, and the majority of pupils at the end of key stage 4 were age 15 at the start of the academic year. Some pupils may complete this key stage in an earlier or later year group.</p><p>[3] The department does not collect data on which qualifications are offered by schools, instead figures based on which qualifications have been entered by pupils has been used as a proxy. There may be some qualifications offered by a school that no pupils sat exams in for each year.</p><p>[4] Figures only include qualifications included in performance tables.</p><p>[5] 2017/18 figures are revised figures.

This brings the total allocation for high needs this year to £6.3 billion.</p><p>My right hon. Friend, the Chancellor of the Exchequer has announced that the government will hold a Spending Review alongside the Budget where spending plans beyond 2019-20 will be agreed. The government will need to balance competing priorities across a broad range of areas, but we will be taking careful account of the importance of providing the right funding for education, and for high needs in particular. My right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for Education has made clear that as we approach the next Spending Review, he will back head teachers to ensure they have the resources they need to deliver a world class education.</p><p> </p> more like this

Schools have the autonomy to make decisions about the structure and duration of their school day to suit their own circumstances. However, the department is clear that pupils should be given an appropriate break and expects school leaders to make sure this happens.</p><p> </p><p>The government recognises the importance of physical activity in schools to improve physical and mental wellbeing and support attainment. That is why our Childhood Obesity strategy reflects the Chief Medical Officer’s guidelines that primary age children should get at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity a day and the aim that 30 minutes of that should be during the school day.</p><p> </p> more like this
