star this property answer text <p>We have appointed a consortium of partners, led by the Anna Freud Centre, to support delivery of the pilots. The consortium brings together significant expertise on the mental health of looked-after children, including Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children (UASC), and will work closely with selected sites to use their own learning and expertise to inform the project. The assessment framework will be tailored to the specific groups of looked-after children that each pilot site chooses to focus on which, for some sites, will be UASC.</p><p> </p><p>The pilots will also draw on the recommendations made by the Expert Working Group, which was commissioned by Department for Education and Department for Health and Social Care. The Expert Working Group found that the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) should be supported by a broader set of measures. The pilots will therefore use the SDQ alongside other assessment tools.</p><p> </p><p>We will be conducting a full evaluation of the pilots. This will include evidence of effectiveness for specific groups of looked-after children as well as the cohort as a whole.</p>

star this property answer text <p>My right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State welcomed the Northern Powerhouse Partnership’s report, ‘Educating the North’. In response to it, my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State wrote to my right hon. Friend, the Member for Harlow and Chair of the Education Committee, on 13 June 2018, detailing the government’s clear plan for improving education and skills in the North. A copy of that letter is available here: <a href="https://www.parliament.uk/business/committees/committees-a-z/commons-select/education-committee/inquiries/parliament-2017/education-in-the-north-inquiry-17-19/publications/" target="_blank">https://www.parliament.uk/business/committees/committees-a-z/commons-select/education-committee/inquiries/parliament-2017/education-in-the-north-inquiry-17-19/publications/</a>.</p><p>I refer the hon. Member for Barnsley Central to the answer I gave on 11 June 2018 to Questions <a href="https://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-question/Commons/2018-05-02/140737/" target="_blank">140737, 140738, 140739</a> and to the answer I gave on 18 July 2018 to Questions <a href="https://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-question/Commons/2018-07-10/162577/" target="_blank">162577, 162578</a>. These responses set out further details of the initiatives referred to in that letter.</p><p>We have launched a school improvement support offer which means schools eligible for support have access to up to 3 days free advice from a national leader of education (NLE). A subset of these schools, judged as 'requires improvement' in their last 2 Ofsted inspections, will have access of up to £16,000 of funded support to address the needs identified by the NLE. In the Sheffield City Region and across the North, a first cohort of schools is currently being offered school improvement support with further eligible schools to be identified later in 2019. In addition, there are 10 projects funded through the Strategic School Improvement Fund (SSIF) where the lead applicant is based in the Sheffield City Region. In total these projects have been awarded over £3 million. These are among the 57 SSIF projects where the lead applicant is based in the Northern Powerhouse area. In total, these projects have been awarded just over £20 million. The complete list of successful applicants is available here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/strategic-school-improvement-fund-successful-applicants/strategic-school-improvement-fund-ssif-successful-applicants" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/strategic-school-improvement-fund-successful-applicants/strategic-school-improvement-fund-ssif-successful-applicants</a>.</p><p>A further cohort of schools in the Sheffield City Region and across the North, identified as facing significant challenges with teacher recruitment and retention, is receiving funded support to address those issues.</p><p>The department is working closely with the social mobility partnership South Yorkshire Futures, on our shared aims of improving educational outcomes across the Sheffield City Region and has seconded 3 members of staff to support their programme. A link to the programme can be found here: <a href="https://southyorkshirefutures.co.uk/syf/?doing_wp_cron=1550062482.9984350204467773437500" target="_blank">https://southyorkshirefutures.co.uk/syf/?doing_wp_cron=1550062482.9984350204467773437500</a>.</p><p>5 of the 12 Department for Education-funded Opportunity Areas are in areas of low social mobility across the North, with the aim of improving educational outcomes and life chances for children and young people. Doncaster Opportunity Area is one of those areas and is working closely with South Yorkshire Futures on a number of their interventions. This includes work to improve teacher recruitment and retention in the county through funding newly qualified teacher mentoring and collaborating with the Sheffield City Region on our newly-launched Careers Hub, which aims to improve the quality of careers information, advice and guidance given to young people in the borough.</p><p>‘Educating the North’ recommended that the Opportunity Areas programme be extended to the North East. My right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State announced Opportunity North East in October 2018. The programme brings together North East leaders from education, local government and business to work together to improve outcomes for young people in the region. Through Opportunity North East the department will make a substantial investment in the region, including £12 million for the early roll-out of national reforms to improve support for new teachers, and a further £12 million to tackle the 5 key educational challenges identified for the area. Details of this announcement can be found here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/news/education-secretary-launches-24-million-programme-for-north-east" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/news/education-secretary-launches-24-million-programme-for-north-east</a>.</p>

The full report is available here:</p><p><a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/266339/DFE-RR319.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/266339/DFE-RR319.pdf</a>.</p><p>In Dorset and Poole, the under-registration rates reported at 2013 are in the attached table.</p><p>Schools automatically receive Pupil Premium funding for each pupil registered as eligible for free school meals in the school census and for any pupil eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years. This year 1.99 million pupils, 27% of all pupils, aged 5-16 are eligible to receive Pupil Premium funding.</p><p>We do not publish statistics on the take up of Pupil Premium.</p><p>The department wants to make sure that as many eligible pupils as possible are claiming free school meals, and to make it as simple as possible for schools and local authorities to determine eligibility. To support this we provide:</p><ul><li>The Eligibility Checking Service to make the checking process as quick and simple as possible for schools and local authorities.</li><li>A model registration form for paper-based applications.</li><li>Guidance to Jobcentre Plus advisors and work coaches so they can make Universal Credit claimants aware that they might be entitled to free school meals.</li></ul><p> </p><p>We know that many schools and local authorities have established very effective ways to encourage all eligible families to register for free school meals.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Statutory guidance in ‘Working together to safeguard children’ (2018) is clear that anyone who has concerns about a child’s welfare should make a referral to local authority children’s social care, and that they should do so immediately if there is a concern that the child is suffering significant harm or is likely to do so.</p><p>Our communications campaign, ‘Together, we can tackle child abuse’, has helped raise the awareness of abuse among the public and professionals, and has provided local authorities with resources they can use to raise awareness locally.</p><p> </p><p>Disadvantaged children and young people who are in receipt of, or whose parents are in receipt of, one or more of the eligible benefits are entitled to free school meals and, to ensure that as many of these children as possible are able to claim this benefit, we provide an eligibility checking system that all local authorities can access; this makes the checking process as quick and straightforward as possible.</p><p> </p>
