star this property answer text <p>There are currently two open maths schools: Kings College London Mathematics School and Exeter Mathematics School. In 2018, both schools had A level progress scores that were ‘well above average’. Pupils achieved progress scores of 1.46 and 1.10 in A level mathematics in Kings College London and Exeter Mathematics Schools respectively. This means that pupils in these schools achieved, on average, a grade higher than similar pupils nationally. These outcomes place both schools in the top 1% of schools in England for progress in A level mathematics.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department will give careful consideration to the findings within the Chief Adjudicator’s annual report as it endeavours to ensure that the admissions system continues to work effectively for parents, pupils and schools.</p><p>Pupils leave school rolls for many reasons including: permanent exclusion, moving to another school, or changes of circumstances (as when a pupil moves to a new area). All schools must notify the local authority when a pupil’s name is to be deleted from the admission register.</p><p>Statutory guidance on exclusions is also clear that ‘informal’ or ‘unofficial’ exclusions are unlawful, regardless of whether they occur with the agreement of parents or carers. Any exclusion of a pupil, even for short periods of time, must be formally recorded.</p><p>A consultation and call for evidence on elective home education was held by the Department between April and July 2018. This included the issue of registration of children by local authorities. The responses received are still being considered, and a government response document outlining next steps will be published in due course.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department has taken action to tackle unnecessary teacher workload, and address burdensome tasks such as marking and lesson planning.</p><p>The most recently published snapshot survey shows that 73% of teachers and head teachers report that their schools have reviewed or updated school policies to reduce workload, 67% had reduced or changed their approach to marking, and 49% had reduced or changed their approach to planning. Of those that had taken action on workload, 47% said unnecessary workload had been effectively reduced. The survey can be found here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/school-snapshot-survey-winter-2017" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/school-snapshot-survey-winter-2017</a>.</p><p>Developed by head teachers, teachers and other sector experts, the workload reduction toolkit published in July 2018 provides accessible materials for teachers. These include practical advice, tools and case studies that head teachers, teachers and other staff can use to address workload issues in their school. To date materials have been collectively downloaded around 84,000 times. The toolkit can be viewed here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/workload-reduction-toolkit" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/workload-reduction-toolkit</a>.</p><p>The Workload Advisory Group, chaired by Professor Becky Allen, has looked at what unnecessary data and evidence schools are collecting, and what (and who) drives that behaviour. On 5 November 2018, the Government published the report from the Workload Advisory Group and their response accepting all the recommendations in full. This report can be viewed here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/teacher-workload-advisory-group-report-and-government-response" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/teacher-workload-advisory-group-report-and-government-response</a>.</p><p>The Department is continuing to collect and analyse evidence on what drives excessive workload and what works to reduce it, and has committed to a large scale workload survey which will run every 2 years, to improve the evidence base and inform policies.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Selective schools are some of the highest performing schools in the country and an important part of a diverse education system. Almost all of them are rated Good or Outstanding, and they are popular with parents. That is why the Government continues to support their expansion, through the Selective School Expansion Fund, where they meet the high bar that has been set for working to increase the admission of pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds.</p><p>The Department is committed to opening more university-sponsered maths schools, building on the success of King’s College London Mathematics School and the Exeter Mathematics School, to help prepare more of the most mathematically able students to succeed in maths disciplines at top universities and pursue mathematically intensive careers.</p><p>The Department currently has no plans to formally respond to this paper.</p> more like this

The analysis draws on data collected through the second Longitudinal Study of Young People in England, which has followed the development of a cohort of young people from Year 9 to the end of Key Stage 4 and beyond.

Friend, the Secretary of State, announced an additional £1.3 billion for schools and high needs across 2018-19 and 2019-20, in addition to the schools budget set at Spending Review 2015, on 17 July. As a result, core funding for schools will rise from almost £41 billion in 2017-18 to £42.4 billion in 2018-19 and £43.5 billion in 2019-20, representing an increase in the total schools budget of over 6% between this year and 2019-20. This means funding per pupil will now be maintained in real terms for the remaining two years of this Spending Review.</p><p> </p><p>We have now announced details of the new national funding formulae, meaning that from April 2018 funding will finally be allocated on a fair and transparent basis. We have announced the funding that will be allocated for all schools in England, including schools in Hampshire, under the formula. Full details are available at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-funding-formula-tables-for-schools-and-high-needs" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-funding-formula-tables-for-schools-and-high-needs</a>.</p><p>Together these reforms will give schools a firm foundation that will enable them to continue to raise standards, promote social mobility, and give every child the best possible education.</p>
