star this property answer text <p>The number of guided learning hours for AS and A levels have not changed as a result of our reforms. However, with the move to linear qualifications, there will no longer be the routine and automatic external assessment of students at the end of year 12 which places unnecessary burdens on students’ and teachers’ time.</p><p>Study programmes are funded per student rather than per qualification. Funding rates are based on an average of 600 hours per year of planned activities per student.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We expect schools to ensure that teaching is relevant to all children and young people, including those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT). LGBT issues can be covered by schools within the curriculum and the current Sex and Relationship Education statutory guidance (2000) states that we expect all schools to ensure that young people, whatever their developing sexuality or gender identity, feel that the subject is relevant to them, and sensitive to their needs. All schools must comply with the Equality Act (2010).</p><p> </p><p>The Government Equalities Office launched a £3 million programme from 2016-2019 to prevent and address homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying in schools. The programme will support thousands of teachers to better identify homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying, and to support LGBT pupils.</p><p> </p><p>Following the passage of the Children and Social Work Act 2017, the teaching of Relationships Education in primary schools and Relationships and Sex Education in secondary schools will be mandatory. As part of the current call for evidence, we are working with teachers, parents, experts and others to develop age-appropriate subject content, including on mental health, keeping safe online and LGBT issues.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Schools have an important role to play in supporting the mental health of pupils. On 4 December 2017, the Government published the green paper, Transforming Children and Young People’s Mental Health Provision. We are consulting on proposals which will be supported by over £300 million of funding.</p><p> </p><p>Up to £95 million of this money will be used to fund training for Designated Senior Mental Health Leads in schools, which will cover effective ways to establishing a whole school approach to promoting and supporting good mental health.</p><p> </p><p>Schools also need access to trained and clinically supervised support for pupils with mental health issues. The Government will provide £215 million over three years to fund new clinically supervised Mental Health Support Teams to work closely with designated senior mental health leads in schools to provide evidence based help for pupils with mild to moderate mental health needs. It will also support mental health awareness training for all schools. This preventative approach will provide earlier intervention, to help prevent mental health problems from developing. It will also provide a better link to specialist NHS mental health services.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Music and the arts are compulsory in maintained schools until the end of Key Stage 3 (age 14). The English Baccalaureate (EBacc) has been designed to be limited in its size in order to provide a rigorous academic core whilst leaving space in the Key Stage 4 curriculum for the study of other subjects. In July 2017, the department published an analysis of the trends in arts uptake in state-funded mainstream schools where EBacc entry has seen an increase since 2010/11. This analysis shows that there is little correlation between the change in EBacc entry and the change in arts uptake, though what correlation exists suggests that schools where EBacc entry has increased tend to have also seen an increase in their arts uptake. The proportion of pupils in state funded schools taking at least one arts subject has remained broadly stable since 2010. The analysis is available to view here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/trends-in-arts-subjects-in-schools-with-increased-ebacc-entry" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/trends-in-arts-subjects-in-schools-with-increased-ebacc-entry</a>.</p>
