star this property answer text <p>The government has not made a specific assessment of the impact of the length of school break times on obesity, academic performance or children’s social lives. Schools have the autonomy to make decisions about the structure and duration of their school day to suit their own circumstances. However, the department is clear that pupils should be given an appropriate break and expects school leaders to make sure this happens.</p><p> </p><p>The government recognises the importance of physical activity in schools to improve physical and mental wellbeing and support attainment. That is why our Childhood Obesity strategy reflects the Chief Medical Officer’s guidelines that primary age children should get at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity a day and the aim that 30 minutes of that should be during the school day.</p><p> </p> more like this

A time series can be found in Table 1 at the following link: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/special-educational-needs-in-england-january-2018" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/special-educational-needs-in-england-january-2018</a>.</p><p>Information on all young people (up to age 25) with an EHC plan is published in the annual ‘Statements of SEN and EHC Plans’ statistical release. A time series can be found in Table 1 at the following link: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/statements-of-sen-and-ehc-plans-england-2018" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/statements-of-sen-and-ehc-plans-england-2018</a>.</p><p>The first full year that statutory EHC plans were in place was 2015. Figures prior to this, therefore, relate to statements only. Table 2 in the following link includes the number of new EHC plans during 2014: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/statements-of-sen-and-ehc-plans-england-2018" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/statements-of-sen-and-ehc-plans-england-2018</a>.</p><p>It is important to note that the number of EHC plans and statements of SEN does not include learning difficulty assessments (LDAs). These were previously used in a similar way as an EHC plan, for young people with SEN at a post-16 level, but were replaced by EHC plans from 2015. The last record of LDAs were removed from the system in 2016.</p>
