star this property answer text <p>86% of schools in England are good or outstanding.</p><p>The Department has committed £7 billion to create new school places between 2015 and 2021, the vast majority of which are being created in the best existing schools or through good new schools. The Department is on track to create 1 million places this decade, the largest increase in school capacity in at least two generations.</p><p>Of the mainstream free schools approved between 2014 and 2017, 86% have been in areas where there was a need for more school places. 84% of free schools with inspection reports published by the end of May are rated good or outstanding.</p><p> </p><p>98% of grammar schools are also good or outstanding and the Department wants more disadvantaged pupils to be able to access a place at them. That is why it has made £100 million available through the Selective Schools Expansion Fund to create additional places, where needed, in selective schools that commit to a plan to improve access for disadvantaged children. In 2018 the Department announced 16 selective schools to be funded to expand, and it launched a second bidding round in 2019.</p><p>Education is a devolved matter and it is for the Welsh national assembly to decide on education in Wales.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Teaching about sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including HIV and Aids is included in the current statutory sex and relationships education guidance, which was published in 2000. Schools already teach these topics, often as part of their science curriculum and personal, social, health, and economic education.</p><p> </p><p>In teaching about STIs under the new guidance on relationships education, relationships and sex education and health education, schools are free to decide which resources to use and the Department trusts headteachers to make those decisions. The guidance is clear that schools should draw on medically accurate information and set this in the broader context of the subjects as a whole.</p><p> </p><p>The Department is committed to supporting schools to teach the new subjects to a high standard. The Department is working with subject experts to ensure schools are supported to improve their practice, including providing easy access to high-quality teaching materials across the requirements for the new subjects.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department enables and strongly encourages primary schools, when teaching about different types of family within relationships education, to include families with same sex parents. The statutory guidance states that all pupils should receive teaching on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) relationships during their school years. Secondary schools will be expected to include LGBT relationships in their teaching.</p><p> </p><p>The Department is working closely with schools on a package of support for effective implementation of these subjects. The Department will ensure that all of the materials supporting implementation of the new subjects are inclusive, and fully recognise the need to disseminate the good practice in teaching about LGBT relationships that is seen in large numbers of our schools.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department is committed to ensuring that teaching remains an attractive profession and that graduates can access high quality teacher training across all subjects. That’s why in January the Department launched the Teacher Recruitment and Retention Strategy. Designed collaboratively with the sector, the centrepiece of the strategy is the Early Career Framework (ECF) which will underpin a fully-funded, two-year support package for new teachers, providing them with the early career support enjoyed by other top professionals.</p><p> </p><p>The Government offers student finance for all tuition fee funded citizenship teacher training courses, including a tuition fee loan which means that trainee teachers do not need to pay fees upfront. Citizenship trainee teachers can also apply for a maintenance loan to support their living costs. Those considering citizenship Initial Teacher Training (ITT) are eligible for one to one support from Teacher Training Advisers, to guide them through their journey into teaching. They can access this support by registering with Get into Teaching.</p><p> </p><p>For some subjects, the Department provide bursaries to incentivise applications. The Department has had to take difficult decisions about where to focus this bursaries budget. As schools enter more pupils for English Baccalaureate (EBacc) subjects, it is expected that there will be more demand for specialist teachers in these subjects. The Department has therefore focused the bursaries budget on EBacc subjects to secure as many applicants as possible in the subjects where schools are likely to devote the most teaching time.</p><p> </p>
