The data may differ slightly from that of the published statistics as these data were run on a different date. Clearance times are dependent on several factors, such as hearing capacity at the venue closest to the appellant, or the local availability of tribunal panel members. Other factors might include the availability of the appellant or their representative, or the provision of further evidence. Additionally, a decision on the appeal may be reached after a hearing has been adjourned (which may be directed by the judge for a variety of reasons, such as to seek further evidence), or after a hearing has been postponed (again, for a variety of reasons, often at the request of the appellant). An appeal may also have been referred back to the First-tier Tribunal by the Upper Tribunal for disposal. Cases may also have been stayed at the First-tier Tribunal, pending a decision by the Upper Tribunal on a lead case. HMCTS has been working with the tribunal’s judiciary both to appoint additional judges and panel members and take forward initiatives with potential to increase the capacity and performance of the tribunal. These include reviewing current listing practices to increase the number of cases being listed on a tribunal session, and introducing case management “triage” sessions, with the aim of reducing the time taken for appeals to reach final determination. All these measures will increase the capacity of the tribunal with the aim of reducing waiting times for appellants.</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p>

The guidance is clear on the importance of making referrals to children’s social care and/or the police when a child has been harmed or is at risk of harm.</p><p>Ofsted has published guidance that sets out what inspectors must consider when inspecting safeguarding (<a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/inspecting-safeguarding-in-early-years-education-and-skills-from-september-2015" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/inspecting-safeguarding-in-early-years-education-and-skills-from-september-2015</a>). Inspectors will always report on whether or not arrangements for safeguarding children are effective.</p><p>The Education and Skills Funding Agency has responsibility for considering safeguarding and child protection policies of academies and free schools through compliance with the schools’ funding agreements. When the department is made aware of any safeguarding issues in academies or free schools, we work quickly to involve the right organisations, consider safeguarding and child protection policies and compliance with the funding agreement. If the case requires specific child protection actions or inspection, we will make the appropriate referrals.</p>

star this property answer text <p>​We continue to call on all sides to the conflict to respect International Humanitarian Law (IHL). We are aware of reports of alleged violations of IHL by actors in the conflict and take these very seriously. It is important that credible allegations of violations of IHL are investigated.</p><p>Addressing the continuing humanitarian crisis is a top priority for this Government. In 2017/18 the Government committed £205 million in aid to Yemen, making the UK the third largest humanitarian donor to Yemen, and the second largest to the UN appeal. We prioritised life-saving interventions including food and nutrition support to 1.7 million people and clean water and sanitation for an expected 1.2 million people. On 3 April, we announced an additional £170 million in response to the humanitarian crisis in Yemen for 2018/2019. This funding will meet the immediate food needs of 2.5 million Yemenis, and comes on top of over £400 million in bilateral support since the conflict began in 2015.</p><p>We do not maintain records of casualty figures for the conflict in Yemen. Gathering data is extremely challenging considering the complexities of the situation and the challenges faced by humanitarian monitors across the country. Estimates by the UN and NGOs vary considerably.</p>
