star this property answer text <p>There are currently 346 free schools open. Since 2010, six free schools have closed and two closures are planned for summer 2017. The primary objective of the Department when making a decision to close a school is to ensure the best possible educational outcomes for pupils and to secure value for money for the taxpayer. The Department would expect the responsible body to meet any outstanding costs or debts. Where this is not possible, the Department would consider providing financial support if reasonable to do so.</p> more like this

An earlier application made by the college in June was rejected by Cabinet Office. A second, revised, application was approved by Cabinet Office on 12 July 2017 and a formal application to the department was received on 13 July 2017.</p><p>The name still requires approval from Companies House, but there is sufficient time for this to be approved before the proposed merger date of 1 August 2017.</p><p> </p> more like this

Statistics published in June 2017 show that in January 2017, 95% of three and four year olds and 71% of eligible two year olds were benefitting from a free place, a 3% increase from the previous year.</p><p> </p><p>We have recruited a national delivery contractor, Childcare Works, to support local authorities with their implementation and delivery of 30 hours free childcare. We are monitoring take up of the two-year-old programme and the universal entitlement for 3 and 4 year olds.</p><p> </p><p>A key part of Childcare Works’ contract is working with local authorities to ensure that take up of the early learning for two year olds programme does not decrease due to the introduction of 30 hours free childcare for working parents.</p><p> </p><p>In our 8 early implementer areas, we have not seen a negative impact on the existing entitlements.</p>
