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>The United Kingdom’s priorities for both the Conference of States Parties and Review Conference are to continue working with states around the world to support progress towards universal and full national implementation of the Convention and to uphold the ban on chemical weapons development, production, stockpiling and use. The UK will focus on strengthening implementation of the Convention including through effective implementation of the Decision taken at the June 2018 special Conference of States Parties on which the former Foreign Secretary updated the House on 9 July (<em>Official Report</em>, House of Commons, volume 644, column 29WS), and securing a budget for 2019 to allow the critical work of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to continue unimpeded.</p><p>The fact that I plan to represent the UK at the Review Conference, and my noble friend the Deputy Leader of the House of Lords and Minister of State for Defence also plans to attend the Conference of States Parties, indicates the importance the United Kingdom attaches to the Convention and the significant role it plays in the rules-based international system.</p><p>​</p>
