star this property answer text <p>The Department welcomes the National Literacy Trust’s research on reading in both print and digital forms.</p><p>The Department wants children to develop the habit of reading widely and often, for both pleasure and information, whatever the format. Research suggests that reading for pleasure is more important for children’s educational development than their parents’ level of education.</p><p>There is sound evidence that systematic synthetic phonics is a highly effective method of teaching reading to children. Phonics performance is improving: in 2018, there were 163,000 more 6-year-olds on track to become fluent readers compared to 2012. This represented 82% of pupils meeting the expected standard in the phonics screening check, compared to just 58% when the check was introduced in 2012.</p><p>Building on the success of our phonics partnerships and phonics roadshows programmes, in 2018, the Department launched a £26.3 million English Hubs Programme. Hub schools are taking a leading role in improving the teaching of early reading through systematic synthetic phonics, early language development, and reading for pleasure. The Department has appointed 34 primary schools across England as English Hubs.</p>

The focus of the specialist NPQs is yet to be finalised, but they will be linked to the core areas in which teachers receive training at the start of their career, such as assessment, behaviour management, subject and curriculum expertise and pedagogy. The Department will continue to work with the sector, including special education needs and disability stakeholders and literacy specialists, as we design these qualifications. The Department will release further details in due course.</p><p> </p> more like this

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Education attended NAHT’s annual conference in May 2018, ASCL’s national conference in March 2018 and again last week. Department officials meet all the head teacher unions every month. School funding is frequently discussed as part of these meetings. Additionally, all education ministers regularly visit schools and spend time with head teachers and staff.</p><p>The Department recognises the pressures that parts of the school system are facing. The Government continues to invest in the school system, with school funding at a record high. The Department is also providing the sector with more than half a billion pounds to fund teacher pay increases. Alongside this, the Department will be putting a strong case to Her Majesty's Treasury for the next spending review.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Where a school identifies that a pupil faces an issue which is affecting their ability to take part in lessons, they should work with parents or carers to identify what action to take appropriate to their individual circumstances, following the statutory guidance set out in the ‘Special educational needs and disability code of practice: 0-25 years’ document. This can be accessed on GOV.UK at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/send-code-of-practice-0-to-25" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/send-code-of-practice-0-to-25</a>.</p><p> </p><p>Where a school feels that a child might have a social anxiety disorder or ‘school phobia’, they might need to seek support from a mental health specialist. The Government has taken a number of steps to improve provision of specialist children and young people’s mental health services. An additional £1.4 billion is being made available to the NHS between 2015 and 2020 to fund increased access. In addition to this, the proposals set out in the transforming children and young people’s mental health provision green paper will establish new mental health support teams linked to schools and colleges This includes supporting all schools and colleges to identify and train a designated senior lead for mental health to oversee the approach to mental health and wellbeing. The first areas that will test the new teams were announced on 20 December 2018 and the longer term aim is to provide teams to support all schools and colleges in England.</p>
