This top-up funding, and funding for special schools, comes from the local authority’s high needs budget, which is part of the high needs block of the Dedicated Schools Grant.</p><p>The published schools block and high needs block allocations for each local authority since 2013-14 are available at the following links:</p><p>2013-14 figures: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dedicated-schools-grant-2013-to-2014" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dedicated-schools-grant-2013-to-2014</a>.</p><p>2014-15 figures: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dedicated-schools-grant-2014-to-2015" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dedicated-schools-grant-2014-to-2015</a>.</p><p>2015-16 figures: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dedicated-schools-grant-dsg-2015-to-2016" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dedicated-schools-grant-dsg-2015-to-2016</a>.</p><p>2016-17 figures: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dedicated-schools-grant-dsg-2016-to-2017" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dedicated-schools-grant-dsg-2016-to-2017</a>.</p><p>2017-18 figures: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dedicated-schools-grant-dsg-2017-to-2018" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dedicated-schools-grant-dsg-2017-to-2018</a>.</p><p>2018-19 figures: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dedicated-schools-grant-dsg-2018-to-2019" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dedicated-schools-grant-dsg-2018-to-2019</a>.</p><p>2019-20 figures: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dedicated-schools-grant-dsg-2019-to-2020" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dedicated-schools-grant-dsg-2019-to-2020</a>.</p><p>Prior to 2013, the Dedicated Schools Grant was not split into specific blocks for schools or high needs. As it includes funding for other services, such as the early years budget, the department is unable to provide comparable figures prior to 2013-14. The Dedicated Schools Grant is allocated at local authority level and constituency level information is not available.</p><p>In 2020-21, we have allocated an additional £2.6 billion for schools and high needs, including more than £700 million in high needs funding.</p>

I set out my view that this is a useful tool, which will help front-line services better understand and recognise instances of antisemitism.</p><p> </p><p>The government believes that adopting the IHRA definition of antisemitism sends a clear message that antisemitic behaviour will not be tolerated, and that any instances of antisemitism will be taken very seriously.</p><p> </p><p>Higher education providers are autonomous organisations who are independent from the government and individually responsible for deciding whether to adopt the IHRA definition and this information is therefore not held centrally.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The government is committed to supporting young carers so that they are properly protected from excessive or inappropriate caring responsibilities and supported to achieve their full potential. Consistent identification remains challenging, with many being ‘hidden’ and therefore unrecognised and/or unsupported.</p><p>Changes through the Children and Families Act 2014 simplified the legislation relating to young adult carers’ assessments, making rights and duties clearer to both young people and practitioners. This included promoting whole family approaches which triggers both children’s or young people's and adults’ support services into action – assessing why a child is caring, what needs to change and what would help the family to prevent children or young people from taking on this responsibility in the first place.</p><p>Most of the government’s work to support carers is led by the Department for Health and Social Care (DHSC) delivered through the Carers Action Plan. The 'Shaping our Future: Improving Assessment and Support for Young Carers Transition to Adulthood' report was published in June and is available from here:</p><p><a href="https://www.childrenssociety.org.uk/sites/default/files/young-carer_transition_report.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.childrenssociety.org.uk/sites/default/files/young-carer_transition_report.pdf</a>.</p><p>One of the recommendations states that there is more to learn about young carers’ experiences of loneliness and how it is related to their well-being. There should be a specific focus on young adult carers being better connected in order to tackle the loneliness they experience. DHSC will be sharing the findings of the report with the appropriate government departments for them to consider the recommendations within their policies.</p><p>We have recently published the Children in Need Review conclusion, and this sets out our approach to helping schools and children’s social care improve the educational outcomes of children in need, including those young carers assessed as being in need.</p><p> </p>
