All of these independent schools were approved as sponsors prior to 2017.</p><p>Of the free schools we have opened since 2017, the London Academy of Excellence (LAE) in Tottenham was set up by an independent school, Highgate School. LAE Tottenham is supported by Highgate School, as well as eight other leading independent partner schools.</p><p>The school’s sister school, LAE Stratford, was set up by Brighton College in 2012. The school reported that in the 2018/19 academic year, 26 students received offers from Oxford or Cambridge. This is an outstanding achievement, especially in a geographic area with relatively low Oxbridge destinations.</p><p>The Department has a joint understanding with the Independent Schools Council to encourage more independent schools to work in partnership with state-funded schools across four key areas: governance, teaching, curriculum and targeted school improvement. The Department announced funding for cross-sector partnerships in June and will invite bids in the autumn.</p><p>The joint understanding also encourages independent schools to offer a greater number of full bursary places, targeted at children from disadvantaged backgrounds.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department trusts schools to record, authorise and monitor attendance effectively and to work constructively with individual parents and pupils to improve school attendance where it is a problem.</p><p> </p><p>The law places a duty on parents to ensure that their child attends school regularly where the child is of compulsory school age and registered at a school. The Education Act 1996 also sets out the situations in which an absent pupil will not be taken to have failed to attend school regularly, such as where the child was prevented from attending due to illness.</p><p> </p><p>The Department recognises that mental health problems can have an impact on a pupil’s attendance and the guidance to schools is clear that they should authorise pupil absence due to illness (both physical and mental health related) unless they have genuine cause for concern about the veracity of an illness. If the authenticity of illness is in doubt, schools can request parents to provide medical evidence to support absence, but this is not mandatory.</p><p> </p><p>The statutory Special Educational Need and Disability Code of Practice sets out the approach that schools should take when staff notice an emerging issue, including mental health issues. Where more serious problems occur, schools should expect pupils and families to be able to access support from specialist services.</p><p> </p><p>Local authorities must arrange suitable full-time education for children of compulsory school age who, because of illness, would not receive suitable education without such provision. The Department’s statutory guidance states that local authorities should provide such education as soon as it is clear that a child will be away from school for 15 days or more, whether consecutive or cumulative.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department welcomes the focus this report brings and will consider its recommendations carefully, given the Department’s commitment to closing the attainment gap between disadvantaged children and their peers.</p><p> </p><p>Since 2011, the attainment gap has narrowed by more than 9% at age 16 and more than 13% at age 11. The Department’s reforms and the extra support funded by the pupil premium have contributed to this improvement.</p><p>The Department established the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) with £137 million to research in hundreds of English schools the most effective ways of using pupil premium, and promote these so that all schools can make a difference to their disadvantaged pupils’ futures. In June 2019, the EEF published a ‘Pupil Premium Guide’ that gives schools clear advice about how best to use the pupil premium grant. The Department encourages all schools to use this guide, which can be accessed here: <a href="https://educationendowmentfoundation.org.uk/evidence-summaries/pupil-premium-guide/" target="_blank">https://educationendowmentfoundation.org.uk/evidence-summaries/pupil-premium-guide/</a>.</p><p> </p><p>The Department seeks to ensure no pupils are left behind – hence the targeted support in some of the most socially immobile areas of the country through the £72 million opportunity areas programme and the Department’s commitment to halve the proportion of children who finish reception year without the communication and reading skills they need to thrive.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

These standards were established in November 2017 when the Department’s most recent construction framework was procured.</p><p>The Department is increasing the number of schools built through modern methods of construction. This method provides the opportunity to reduce site times by up to 50% which would also reduce both disruption to pupils and staff, and the noise and dust associated with onsite construction.</p><p>The Department has built 57 schools using modern methods of construction and this financial year, we plan to open another 21 schools. The department has announced a new procurement framework with a value of up to £3 billion for modern methods of construction solutions in schools.
