star this property answer text <p>There is no legal requirement for schools to purchase an automated external defibrillator (AED), but the government encourages them to do so as part of their first aid equipment.</p><p>AEDs are currently available for schools and other education providers in the UK to purchase through the National Health Service Supply Chain at a reduced cost. These arrangements are available to all UK schools including academies, independent schools, sixth-form colleges, further education institutions and early years settings (including holiday and out-of-school providers).</p><p>The government has produced guidance for schools on buying, installing and using an AED, which can be viewed at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/automated-external-defibrillators-aeds-in-schools" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/automated-external-defibrillators-aeds-in-schools</a>.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Prior to 2018-19, local authorities were free to determine the balance of funding between their schools, high needs and early years budgets, all funded from the Dedicated Schools Grant (DSG). It is not possible to give figures for transfers from the schools block to high needs, as the precise amounts spent by local authorities will also be affected by transfers to and from DSG reserves, and any funding from other sources (for instance, local authorities’ general funds) spent on educational purposes.</p><p>In 2018-19, with the introduction of the national funding formulae for schools and high needs, we have limited this flexibility in order to ensure that the majority of schools funding that local authorities receive is going directly to schools.</p><p>Local authorities are able to move up to 0.5% of their funding from the schools block to the high needs block, with agreement of their schools forum. This is explained in the high needs operational guide, available at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/high-needs-funding-arrangements-2019-to-2020" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/high-needs-funding-arrangements-2019-to-2020</a>. Where a local authority wishes to move more funding, or the forum does not agree to the transfer, the local authority will be required to seek recourse to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Education. Last year, after thorough consideration, 13 local authorities were granted the ability to move funding under these circumstances.</p><p>We will publish data shortly showing the amount of schools block funding the local authorities has allocated this year, compared to the amount they received, thereby providing an indication of funding directed to other areas, such as high needs.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Education announced this week £6.5 million funding for voluntary and community sector organisations who work with families of young children to support early language development, helping to address and support concerns when they can have the most impact; and to improve the early years education of children with special educational needs and disabilities.</p><p>The government set out, prior to Budget 2018, plans to spend £3.5 billion this year on our free early education entitlements. We provide 15 hours of free early education for disadvantaged two year-olds, with almost 750,000 benefitting since 2013, and we provide the Early Years Pupil Premium, which delivers up to £300 per eligible child per year to support better outcomes for disadvantaged three and four year olds. This is on top of the near universal take up of the free 15 hours entitlement for all three and four year-olds.</p><p>Funding for the entitlements is also supported by a £100 million investment through our social mobility action plan ‘Unlocking Talent, Fulfilling Potential’, published in December 2017.</p><p> </p>
