star this property answer text <p>Maintained nursery schools (MNS) make a valuable contribution to improving the lives of some of our most disadvantaged children. They experience costs that other providers do not and we are providing local authorities with approximately £60 million a year in supplementary funding to enable them to protect the funding of MNS.</p><p>I announced on 28 February that the government would extend the supplementary funding paid to local authorities by approximately £24 million to enable them to fully fund MNS for the whole of the 2019/20 academic year. This provides local authorities with the reassurance to allocate places for this September with confidence. The announcement was made with the agreement of HM Treasury. Next steps after the 2019/20 academic year will be determined by the next Spending Review.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Higher Education providers have legal responsibilities under the Equality Act 2010 to support disabled students, including those with visual impairments, for example, by making reasonable adjustments. The responsibility to support students should include communicating what support and services are available. Alongside this, eligible students can receive support through Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSAs), which can help with the costs of additional learning-related equipment, personal support and travel disabled students may incur. Visually impaired students eligible for DSAs receive specialist professional support, for example in making the best use of specialist equipment and in modifying learning materials into accessible formats.</p><p>I recently met organisations who represent visually impaired students, and agreed that the department will work with them to ensure the support available through DSAs continues to enable visually impaired students to participate fully in higher education.</p><p> </p>

Payments were made at the beginning of February through the same routes as devolved formula capital (DFC). As with DFC, individual allocations vary according to the number and phase of education of pupils in a school. An average primary and secondary school have been allocated at least £10,000 and £50,000 respectively. Individual allocations and an explanation of the methodology used to calculate them, are available at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/capital-allocations" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/capital-allocations</a>.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We want to support all young people to be happy, healthy and safe, in order for them to be equipped for adult life and to make a positive contribution to society. That is why we are making Relationships Education compulsory for all primary school pupils and Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) compulsory for all secondary school pupils. From 2020, Health Education will also be compulsory for all pupils in state-funded schools.</p><p> </p><p>We have recently published the updated draft guidance, which contains information on what schools should cover when teaching these subjects. The guidance, attached, is available here: <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/781150/Draft_guidance_Relationships_Education__Relationships_and_Sex_Education__RSE__and_Health_Education2.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/781150/Draft_guidance_Relationships_Education__Relationships_and_Sex_Education__RSE__and_Health_Education2.pdf</a>.</p><p> </p><p>The guidance includes an equal focus on teaching children and young people appropriate behaviour with other people and on being safe online. For example, pupils should be taught about making sure that they treat others respectfully when they are online as well as recognising potential risks to themselves. In RSE, pupils are taught that there are a range of strategies for identifying and managing sexual pressure, including understanding and resisting peer pressure, and not pressurising others. We have made clear that, at all stages, it will be important to balance teaching children about making sensible decisions to stay safe whilst being clear that abuse is never the fault of a child who is abused and that victim blaming is always wrong.</p><p><strong><br> </strong></p>
