star this property answer text <p>The UK Chief Medical Officers’ published guidelines in 2011 which recommended that children and young people aged 5-18 should do a minimum of 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity per day.</p><p> </p><p>It is up to schools to decide what opportunities to offer to pupils to be active, including through a diverse and challenging physical exercise (PE) curriculum that suits the needs of all their pupils. Under the Childhood Obesity Plan the government set an expectation that at least 30 minutes should be delivered in school every day through active break times, PE, extra-curricular clubs, active lessons, or other sport and physical activity events.</p><p> </p><p>The government restated this expectation in the School Sport and Activity Action Plan published earlier this month. A link to the Plan is attached here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/school-sport-and-activity-action-plan" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/school-sport-and-activity-action-plan</a>.</p><p>Through the action set out in the plan, the government will support schools to offer high quality PE and activity opportunities and take steps to increase the opportunities outside of school. As part of the plan, the government has committed to raising awareness of the appropriate levels of physical activity for children and young people, to align with updated Chief Medical Officers’ guidance on physical activity which is due in September 2019.</p><p> </p><p>The department will shortly be issuing procurement guidelines on the purchase and installation of multi-use games areas (MUGAs) for schools. MUGAs provide an excellent opportunity to enhance sports facilities for all schools, particularly those with limited outside space. They can be used all year round, increasing the ability of schools to help ensure as much sporting provision as possible.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The department has not conducted an assessment of the relationship between the proportion of disadvantaged pupils attending a school and its likelihood of being rated by Ofsted as good or outstanding.</p><p>Schools are allocated additional funding, in the form of the pupil premium, for pupils on roll who are classed as disadvantaged. Pupils are classed as disadvantaged through having been registered for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years, being looked after or having left care through adoption or other specified routes. Schools have flexibility over the ways in which they use this funding to improve the attainment and other outcomes of their disadvantaged pupils and these can include measures to improve the quality of teaching received by those pupils. Ofsted will also consider how leaders and governors spend the pupil premium, their rationale and the intended impact, as part of school inspection.</p><p> </p> more like this

This money will kick-start and improve breakfast clubs in over 1,700 schools. The focus of these clubs has been to target the most disadvantaged areas of the country – including the Department for Education’s Opportunity Areas – to help ensure every child gets the best start in life.</p><p>A contract was awarded to Family Action in March 2018 and will run until March 2020. Family Action, in partnership with Magic Breakfast, have both been named as the leading charities responsible for running the Breakfast Club programme. Family Action are distributing the appropriate funding to participating schools who meet the eligibility criteria. Family Action has confirmed that they have reached their recruitment target of 1,775 schools.</p><p>We monitor management information from the programme on an ongoing basis and will fully review the effectiveness of the programme once the programme concludes, including the number of children attending. Decisions about any funding beyond March 2020 will be taken as part of the upcoming Spending Review.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The apprenticeship levy is collected by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) from employers with a pay bill in excess of £3 million per year. HMRC publishes monthly data on apprenticeship levy receipts which can be found at the following link: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/hmrc-tax-and-nics-receipts-for-the-uk" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/hmrc-tax-and-nics-receipts-for-the-uk</a>.

As we develop the apprenticeship service, we will continue to review the data we collect to improve user experience and outcomes.</p><p> </p><p>We already publish detailed data on apprenticeship starts, including levy-supported starts, and our engagement with employers and sector bodies to develop our understanding of how apprenticeships work for different sectors.

star this property answer text <p>The department can confirm that none of the 16 successful applications to the Selective Schools Expansion Fund (SSEF), announced 3 December 2018, applied for a satellite expansion. As we have done for the bids that were successful in round one, we will publish the Fair Access and Partnership Plans for schools that were successful in round two. The department does not intend to publish full SSEF bids as they contain commercially sensitive information.</p><p> </p><p>Admission authorities for grammar schools are responsible for setting their selection tests, including determining the pass threshold. The department wants more pupils to be able to attend Good and Outstanding schools, and 98% of grammar schools are Good or Outstanding schools. Where the pass mark is determined by the admission authority to be a disproportionate barrier for entry for disadvantaged pupils in comparison to their non-disadvantaged peers, it could be considered appropriate to set a lower test pass mark for children eligible for pupil premium funding. Equally, grammar school admission authorities may raise their pass mark if they consider this appropriate. The admission authority would have to consider the impact of the changes on the allocation of places and their stated pupil admissions number.</p><p> </p><p>The School Admissions Code requires all admission arrangements to be fair. A selection test is part of a school’s admission arrangements. The majority of schools who select on academic ability or aptitude age weight the results of their selection test. Where a selective school who admits on academic ability or aptitude does not age weight test results and a parent considers this unfair, they may raise an objection to the schools adjudicator, who has previously issued determinations on this particular issue.</p><p> </p><p>The progress 8 scores for all individual secondary schools, including non-selective schools, are available online at the department’s Find and Compare schools website.
