star this property answer text <p>The department makes a range of information publicly available for schools and other interested parties. Information on the finances of the multi-academy trust (MAT) they intend to join is available through the schools financial benchmarking tool, found here:</p><p><a href="https://schools-financial-benchmarking.service.gov.uk/" target="_blank">https://schools-financial-benchmarking.service.gov.uk/</a>.</p><p>Information on the people involved in the governance of the trust is available, from either the trust’s own website, or the Get Information about Schools website here:</p><p><a href="https://get-information-schools.service.gov.uk/" target="_blank">https://get-information-schools.service.gov.uk/</a>.</p><p>The department encourages Governing Bodies to consider this information before applying to become an academy.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, where a school is applying for an academy order to become an academy and join a trust, the Regional Schools Commissioner (RSC) will consider the financial health of the school and the MAT the school is joining as part of a robust assessment of the ability of the MAT to run the school. The Governing Body of a maintained school can decide not to proceed with conversion before an academy funding agreement is entered into.</p><p> </p><p>There are different arrangements when a school is directed to become an academy. In this situation, the RSC, with advice from their Headteacher Board, identifies an approved sponsor to run the school. The finances of the school, MAT and the MATs ability to run and improve the school are key elements that inform the decision. The sponsor is however under a duty to communicate their plans to improve the school to parents.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>An advance to an academy trust is an early payment on its General Annual Grant, which is allocated to the trust for that year. It is not additional funding for the trust. With each advance, there will be a mutually agreed schedule of monthly reductions to offset the advance.</p><p> </p><p>The department continues to work with the sector to build capacity and expertise in financial management and support effective school resource management with specialist advisers, three year financial forecasting and developing buying hubs and national deals for all schools. Where an academy trust requires additional support, the Education and Skills Funding Agency will work with the trust to build its capacity and help it reach a stronger position.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Defence Statistics publishes annual reports on mental health in the UK Armed Forces. The most recent of these shows that, in the financial year 2017-18, 299 UK Armed Forces personnel had an initial assessment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder at a Ministry of Defence (MOD) Department of Community Mental Health (DCMH). This represents 0.2% of the total Armed Forces population, or 2 in 1,000 personnel.</p><p>Neither the Ministry of Defence nor the Department of Health hold equivalent verified data on the number of former Service personnel who were diagnosed with a mental disorder (including PTSD) after leaving service. However, the Government is committed to ensuring that ex-Service personnel receive effective care and treatment through the NHS, and in his Budget on 29 October the Chancellor announced an additional £10 million to support veterans' mental health projects. The £10 million will be distributed to projects throughout the UK by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust under an open application programme to be called the Veterans Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund.</p>
