star this property answer text <p>The government is committed to tackling loneliness and published its first loneliness strategy on 15 October 2018, bringing together the government, local government, public services, the voluntary and community sector and businesses to identify opportunities to tackle loneliness and build more integrated communities.</p><p>The government recognises that learning English is essential in enabling refugees to rebuild their lives. We are working closely across government to develop a new strategy for English for speakers of other languages (ESOL) in 2019, which will provide a shared vision for all publicly funded English language provision, including addressing the needs of refugees.</p><p>We know that language skills are crucial to help people integrate into life in England, as well as to break down barriers to work and career progression. This is why we support adults in England through the Adult Education Budget to secure the English language skills they need. The Home Office and the Department for Education have also provided £10 million to enable refugees resettled through the Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme to access additional classes.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department recognises that school-based counselling by well-qualified practitioners can play an effective role as part of a ‘whole school’ approach to supporting mental health and wellbeing. The ‘Supporting mental health in schools and colleges’ research indicated that 61% of schools offer counselling services, with 84% of secondary schools providing their pupils with access to counselling support.[1]</p><p>It is for schools to decide what support to provide to their pupils, including how to draw on counselling provision made locally, for instance by local authorities and the voluntary and community sector. To help more schools to do so effectively, the Government has published advice on how to deliver high quality school-based counselling.</p><p>The Government is also introducing the new mental health support teams linked to groups of schools and colleges to provide additional mental health support for pupils with mild or moderate issues. The first 59 teams are being set up in 25 areas of the country and will be fully operational at the end of this year. The aim is for these teams to work together with existing provision, including school-based counselling. The Government will evaluate their introduction to ensure that they do not displace existing provision.</p><p> </p><p>[1] <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/634726/Supporting_Mental-Health_survey_report.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/634726/Supporting_Mental-Health_survey_report.pdf</a></p>

star this property answer text <p>Ofsted’s latest published data to 31 May 2019 shows that 80% of schools in Yorkshire and Humber have an Ofsted rating of good or better compared with the England average of 85%. This data can be accessed here:</p><p><a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/monthly-management-information-ofsteds-school-inspections-outcomes" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/monthly-management-information-ofsteds-school-inspections-outcomes</a>.</p><p>For the academic year 2018-19 where schools may need additional support, the Department has offered up to three days’ funded support from a national leader of education (or equivalent) to schools below the floor or coasting standards based on its 2017-18 results. This centred on helping the existing leadership team to identify and access appropriate support, with an additional £16,000 for schools that have two consecutive requires improvement judgements to implement an action plan. As at April 2019, 139 schools in Yorkshire and Humber were engaging with this offer.</p><p>In addition, my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for Education, has confirmed that from academic year 2019-20, the Department will make an offer of support to all requires improvement schools not already benefitting from the current offer, to ensure that their leadership teams can access the support they need to improve.</p><p>The published 'Schools Causing Concern' guidance sets out how local authorities and Regional Schools Commissioners (RSC's) work with schools to support improvements to educational performance and how they can use their intervention powers. This guidance can be found here:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/schools-causing-concern--2" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/schools-causing-concern--2</a>.</p><p>Local authorities are responsible for the performance of maintained schools. RSCs acting on behalf of my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State, are responsible for taking action where academies and free schools are underperforming. RSCs work closely with academy trusts to ensure that strong processes are in place to maintain and improve educational performance, including using their intervention powers where there is an inadequate Ofsted judgement.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Schools develop their own behaviour policies and strategies for managing behaviour. To help schools develop effective strategies, the Department has produced advice for schools which covers what should be included in the behaviour policy. This advice can be viewed here:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/behaviour-and-discipline-in-schools" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/behaviour-and-discipline-in-schools</a>.</p><p> </p><p>Schools can adopt a policy which allows disruptive pupils to be placed in isolation away from other pupils for a limited period. If a school uses isolation rooms as a disciplinary penalty, this should be made clear in their behaviour policy. As with other disciplinary penalties, schools must act lawfully, reasonably and proportionately in all cases. The school must also ensure the health and safety of pupils.</p><p> </p><p>As part of Ofsted inspections, schools will be asked to provide records and analysis of any use of internal insolation. Ofsted inspectors will expect schools to have clear and effective behaviour policies that promote high standards of behaviour that are applied consistently and fairly. In reaching a judgement on pupils’ personal development, behaviour and welfare, inspectors will take account of a range of information, including schools’ use of internal isolation.</p><p>As part of the Government’s response to the Timpson Review of School Exclusion, we committed to publishing clearer, more consistent guidance by summer 2020. This includes guidance on managing behaviour, on the use of in-school units and the sorts of circumstances where it may be appropriate to use exclusion.</p><p> </p>
