The protocol has been developed with leaders from across the children’s social care, health and criminal justice sectors and endorsed as a positive step forward for children and young people and the relevant professionals working with them.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Schools are responsible for ensuring that all of their pupils, irrespective of their ethnicity and background, are engaged, challenged and have opportunity to achieve their full academic potential. Such children and young people may be diverse in terms of their country of origin, how long they have been in England and their previous experiences of formal education – so individual schools will be best placed to determine how to integrate pupils with refugee status most effectively into the life of the school.</p><p>Head teachers have flexibility in how they use the funding allocated to their schools in order to support and address the specific needs of their pupils – including those who are refugees (or seeking asylum). Refugee children may have English language development needs. Through the new national funding formula (NFF) for schools, which was introduced in April 2018, schools are allocated funding for pupils with English as an additional language (EAL) who have been in the school system in England for up to three years. The funding equates to an additional £515 per primary school pupil and an additional £1,385 per secondary school pupil by the time the formula is fully implemented. The mobility factor in the NFF also directs funding to schools in which more than 10% of pupils joined the school mid-way through the academic year.</p><p>Where appropriate, schools can also use their pupil premium funding to support refugee pupils who are classed as disadvantaged, or who are currently or have previously been in local authority care.</p><p>Unaccompanied asylum seeking children who arrive in the UK become looked-after children and therefore will be safeguarded and have their welfare promoted in the same way as any other looked-after child. Such children will have a Personal Education Plan, and social workers, Virtual School Heads (VSH) and Independent Reviewing Officers, school admission officers and special educational needs departments will work together to ensure that appropriate education provision for the child is arranged.</p><p> </p><p>The department has contributed £1.3 million through the Controlling Migration Fund over two years to fund eight diverse local authorities in providing better access to initial assessment and education for unaccompanied asylum seeking children. The local authorities will also use their delivery models to develop resources for this vulnerable cohort of looked-after children that can be easily shared with and used by other local authorities facing similar challenges. We are working with the VSH Network to support the development of the tools and resources as well as good practice examples and case studies of effective support, which are being cascaded through the VSH Network to all other local authorities looking after unaccompanied and refugee children.</p>

This is why we set out, through legislation, the minimum standards for food provided by schools.</p><p>It is ultimately for schools to set their own packed lunch policies. Schools must act reasonably in setting such policies and we would expect schools to consider pupils’ medical, dietary and cultural needs accordingly. We also expect that schools will consult with parents, setting out their objectives, gaining their support and giving proper consideration to any difficulties when setting their packed lunch policies.</p><p> </p> more like this
