star this property answer text <p>No places originally allocated to lead schools for School Direct have been offered to higher education providers. Earlier this year, we made a number of places available for those schools that have proven popular with applicants and recruited well. We extended this offer to higher education providers in June.</p><p> </p><p>Since they were initially agreed, we have agreed increases to higher education institution (HEI) allocations for a number of reasons. For example, we allocated more places in physics and mathematics throughout the year and we also allowed transfers between particular subjects. The additional places allocated as a result of our offer in June are just part of changes agreed to HEI allocations. We will publish data showing allocations by university and subject in the autumn.</p><p> </p> more like this

The Department for Education believes that smaller infant classes have a positive effect on the progress of younger pupils.</p><p>However, there are already a small number of prescribed exceptions where the limit of 30 pupils per teacher can lawfully be exceeded. These exceptions exist to protect the most vulnerable children such as children in care, children with a statement of special educational needs or children who move into an area where there is no other suitable school place available for them.</p> more like this
