unstar this property answer text <p>The government supports the efforts of the Japan Foundation to help schools teaching Japanese. Since September 2014, maintained primary schools in England must teach a modern or ancient foreign language to pupils at key stage 2 (ages 7 to 11). Schools can choose which language or languages to teach and should enable pupils to make substantial progress in one language by the end of primary school.</p><p>The government took action in 2010 to halt the decline in the number of school children taking language GCSEs by including it within the English Baccalaureate. This has had a positive effect on the take up of languages in schools. The proportion of the cohort in state funded schools entered for a modern foreign language has risen from 40 per cent in 2010 to 49 per cent in 2015. The government’s goal is that, in time, at least 90 per cent of pupils enter GCSEs in the EBacc subjects of English, maths, science, humanities and languages.</p> more like this

We plan to consult on a draft of the regulations and guidance next year.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The government takes seriously its role in promoting inclusion and equality in education settings and the Equality Act 2010 (together with Part 3 of the Children and Families Act 2014) is a foundation stone on which our special educational needs (SEN) and disability system sits. The Equality Act requires all schools (whether maintained or academy) to produce an accessibility plan. These plans are about ensuring that all aspects of school life are accessible to disabled pupils. The Act also requires local authorities to produce accessibility strategies with the same aims as the school-level plan, but with different coverage.</p><p>We have funded the Schools Development Support Agency, working with pdnet to deliver a contract to improve knowledge, skills and capability of the school workforce. Pdnet standards have been developed for the early years, schools and post 16 settings, along with level 1 training for schools raising awareness of physical disabilities. Further information about pdnet is available on <a href="http://pdnet.org.uk/" target="_blank">http://pdnet.org.uk/</a>.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The Children and Families Act 2014, which came into force in September 2014, introduced significant reforms to the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) system. The new statutory framework ensures that support is focused on needs and aspirations, enabling all pupils, including those with autism, to achieve better outcomes in education and adult life.</p><br /><p>Changes to the SEND system since September 2014 include the publication of ‘local offers’ of SEND services by local authorities; the introduction of streamlined education, health and care needs assessments and plans; and new statutory protections for young people aged 16-25 in further education.</p><br /><p>The Act also makes provision to ensure that parents, children and young people are able to access impartial information, advice and support about the SEND system through a local, dedicated and easily identifiable service. Among other things, this service offers help in preparing for meetings with schools, health professionals, or other agencies.</p><br /><p>The Department’s Free Schools programme has seen nineteen special free schools open across the country. This includes several free schools that are specifically for children with Autism, such as the Rise free school in Hounslow, the Lighthouse free school in Leeds, and the National Autistic Society’s Church Lawton free school in Cheshire. There are a further eleven special free schools due to open in the future, five of which will specialise in provision for children with autism, including the Heartlands Autism free school in Haringey and a second National Autistic Society free school, the Vanguard free school in Lambeth. The other six will also offer some places for children with autism.</p><br /><p>The Department has contracted with the Autism Education Trust (2015-16) to deliver autism training to education professionals. The Trust has now trained almost 80,000 education staff since 2012. The Department is also providing grant funding for two additional projects (2015-16): a project by the National Autistic Society to provide information and advice to parents and professionals on exclusions; and a project by Ambitious about Autism on strategies for supporting the transition from school to college.</p>
