star this property answer text <p>Schools are responsible for the continuing professional development of staff who support children and young people with special educational needs or a disability, including those who are on the autism spectrum and/or exhibit a pathological demand avoidance behaviour profile.</p><p> </p><p>The department has funded the Autism Education Trust (AET) since 2011 to deliver autism awareness training to education staff in early years, schools and further education settings. So far it has reached more than 207,000 people – not just teachers and teaching assistants, but also support staff such as receptionists, dining hall staff and caretakers, encouraging a ‘whole school’ approach to supporting pupils with autism. The AET also provides resources for teachers, including a competency framework, a progression framework for assessing children and young people with autism, and a set of standards to help them evaluate their practice in addressing the needs of children and young people with autism.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, the framework for Initial Teacher Training content (published in July 2016), includes specific content on special educational need and autism and the National Association for Special Educational Needs ‘SEND Gateway’ provides access to a range of free, quality assured resources and training materials for schools, including on autism. The SEND Gateway is available here: <a href="https://www.sendgateway.org.uk/" target="_blank">https://www.sendgateway.org.uk/</a>.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We are currently consulting on proposals for free school meals eligibility under Universal Credit. We will consider the responses to the consultation carefully and will continue to refine our analysis as our policy on this matter develops.</p><p>Currently around 1.1 million of the most disadvantaged children are eligible for and claim a free nutritious meal. This government provides significant funding to ensure the most disadvantaged children receive free school meals. <br> <br> Under our proposals, no existing recipients of free school meals should lose their entitlement following the introduction of new eligibility criteria. We have proposed protection arrangements to ensure that every pupil who is eligible and receiving free school meals at the point at which the criteria are changed (or any claimants who gain free school meals during the rollout of Universal Credit) should be protected against losing their meals whilst Universal Credit is fully rolled out nationally. In addition, any protected pupils who are still receiving free school meals once the Universal Credit transition is complete would continue to receive protection until the end of their current phase of education.</p><p>In our proposed net earnings threshold, we estimate that around 50,000 more children will become entitled to free school meals than at present, enabling us to target support towards a greater number of families on low incomes. It is right that we make sure that free school meals reach children from the most disadvantaged families, and we are consulting on this issue to make sure this is the case.</p>

star this property answer text <p>By 2019 to 2020, we will be spending around £6 billion on childcare support, which is a record amount. This includes spending approximately £1 billion extra a year on 30 hours of free childcare and to fund the increase in hourly rates that we introduced in April 2017.</p><p>Our average funding rates are based on the department’s ‘Review of Childcare Costs’. This was described as “thorough and wide ranging” by the National Audit Office. The review looked at both current and future cost pressures. We recently commissioned new research to provide us with further robust and detailed data for the costs of providing childcare for children under five.</p><p>The latest Ofsted data from March 2018 showed that the number of non-domestic providers has remained stable.</p><p> </p> more like this
