star this property answer text <p>All children must be safe wherever they are educated, and the Department is committed to ensuring that children are safe from extremism and radicalisation.</p><p>The Department is actively working with the education sector, national and local partners to safeguard children and young people from these risks. This includes supporting schools to effectively implement their obligations under the Prevent duty; to protect young people from radicalising influences; ensuring that schools are equipped to build children’s resilience against extremist ideologies; and taking firm action where extremism concerns arise.</p><p>The Department has carried out its own regulatory action and supported the Teaching Regulation Agency to prohibit individuals from being involved in education, including where there are substantiated concerns about their extremist views or activities. The Department has also developed a new online form to allow for concerns regarding extremism within the education sector to be reported directly to the Department, to complement our existing counter-extremism helpline.</p><p>The Department also continues to update the Educate Against Hate website, which brings together the best advice, support and resources available for parents, teachers and school leaders, to help them protect young people from extremism and radicalisation.</p><p>The Department continues to fund, with the Home Office, a network of Prevent Education Officers, who provide expertise and support directly to schools and teachers on Prevent implementation.</p><p>The Department has also worked with Ofsted to further strengthen their inspection framework to ensure that all schools are helping to prepare children for life in modern Britain, including through their requirement to promote our shared values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and respect and tolerance of those with other faiths and beliefs.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Headteachers use their professional judgement to decide the structure of the school’s workforce, including recruiting and deploying staff in a way that best meets the needs of their school and pupils. Schools, academies, and local authorities are responsible for the recruitment of their supply teachers, which includes deciding whether to use private supply agencies to fill temporary posts and teacher absences, and the level of training required to teach those subjects.</p><p>The Education (Specified Work) (England) Regulations 2012 set out the qualifications for teachers employed by schools, including supply teachers. In maintained schools, teachers must hold Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), except those who satisfy the requirements for non-qualified teachers to carry out specified work set out in the Education (Specified Work) (England) Regulations 2012, for example, instructors with special qualifications or experience.</p><p>Academies and Free Schools can employ teaching staff without the automatic requirement for them to hold QTS. This applies equally to supply teachers and teachers employed by schools. The Education (Specified Work) (England) Regulations 2012 are available here: <a href="http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2012/762/introduction/made" target="_blank">http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2012/762/introduction/made</a>.</p><p>To be awarded QTS, a teacher must demonstrate that they meet all of the Teachers’ Standards at the appropriate level, including those relating to subject knowledge. The Teachers’ Standards are available here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/teachers-standards" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/teachers-standards</a>.</p><p>The Department has launched a new deal in conjunction with the Crown Commercial Service to improve agency practices and support schools with getting value for money when hiring agency workers. Agencies on the deal must be open with schools and staff about the rates they charge, conduct consistent, rigorous background screening checks, and adhere to strict controls around the charging of temp-to-perm fees. Information on the guidance included in the deal is available here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/guidance/deal-for-schools-hiring-supply-teachers-and-agency-workers" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/guidance/deal-for-schools-hiring-supply-teachers-and-agency-workers</a>.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Schools in St. Helens will attract 4.8% more per pupil next year, a total of £5.9 million of additional funding compared to 2019-20 (subject to changes in pupil numbers). Local authorities’ allocations are provisional at this stage.</p><p> </p><p>The pupil premium was introduced in 2011 as additional funding to help schools improve the progress and attainment of disadvantaged pupils. In 2019-20, schools in St Helens local authority are being allocated £9,670,780 in pupil premium funding, compared to £2,645,000 in 2011-12. The increase in funding is due to changes in the number of pupils eligible for free school meals, the extension of pupil premium eligibility criteria to cover a wider range of pupils, and increases in pupil premium funding rates per pupil.</p><p> </p><p>The factors correlated with trends in pupil attainment are wide ranging and complex. They include school and pupil characteristics such as gender, ethnicity and disadvantage amongst others. The Department has not undertaken a specific assessment of the trends between school spending per pupil and pupil educational achievement in the Metropolitan Borough of St Helens between 2010 and 2019.</p><p> </p><p>Data on the achievement of pupils at Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 4 in each local authority can be found here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/statistics-key-stage-2" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/statistics-key-stage-2</a>.</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/statistics-gcses-key-stage-4" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/statistics-gcses-key-stage-4</a>.</p><p> </p><p>Nationally, the Government is investing a cash increase of £2.6 billion to core schools funding next year, with increases of £4.8 billion and £7.1 billion in 2021-22 and 2022-23 respectively. This is in addition to the £1.5 billion per year the Department will continue to provide to fund additional pension costs for teachers over the next three years, meaning the total core schools budget will rise to £52.2 billion by 2022-23.</p>

If the content meets these criteria, at least one independent awarding organisation will need to develop a specification and have it accredited by Ofqual before a GCSE in BSL can be offered in schools. At this stage, the Department is not able to predict if or when this will happen, but we have indicated that our clear aim is to have a BSL GCSE available as soon as possible.</p><p> </p> more like this
