star this property answer text <p>The Government announced the Teachers’ Student Loan Reimbursement scheme in October 2017, fulfilling our manifesto commitment to help new teachers stay in the profession by forgiving their student loan repayments. The scheme is a pilot that is testing the impact of offering this incentive on teacher retention. It is aimed at early career teachers of languages and science who qualified since 2013/14, and is available in specific local authorities. Information on the scheme is available here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/guidance/teachers-student-loan-reimbursement-guidance-for-teachers-and-schools" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/guidance/teachers-student-loan-reimbursement-guidance-for-teachers-and-schools</a>.</p><p>The scheme has been designed in this way because retention is most challenging early in teachers' careers, and because science and languages are in high demand by schools.</p><p>The local authorities where teachers’ student loan reimbursement applies have high need for teachers. This is determined by the 'Defining Achieving Excellence Areas' methodology, available here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/defining-achieving-excellence-areas-methodology" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/defining-achieving-excellence-areas-methodology</a>.</p><p>High need areas not included in the scheme are in the control group, which will enable the Department to conduct a robust evaluation.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Maintained nursery schools (MNSs) make a valuable contribution to improving the lives of some of our most disadvantaged children. There is a presumption against their closure. This does not mean that they can never close, but if they do, any replacement provision must be of equal quality, preserve expertise and be more accessible and convenient for parents.</p><p>Whether or not a MNS closes is a matter for local authorities, but the presumption against their closure includes a duty on local authorities to assess whether the alternative provision available is of equal or greater quality. Closure arrangements, such as the transfer of children and staff, are for local authorities to manage and the Department for Education is not involved in them.</p> more like this
