star this property answer text <p>My right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State welcomed the Northern Powerhouse Partnership’s report, ‘Educating the North’. In response to it, my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State wrote to my right hon. Friend, the Member for Harlow and Chair of the Education Committee, on 13 June 2018, detailing the government’s clear plan for improving education and skills in the North. A copy of that letter is available here: <a href="https://www.parliament.uk/business/committees/committees-a-z/commons-select/education-committee/inquiries/parliament-2017/education-in-the-north-inquiry-17-19/publications/" target="_blank">https://www.parliament.uk/business/committees/committees-a-z/commons-select/education-committee/inquiries/parliament-2017/education-in-the-north-inquiry-17-19/publications/</a>.</p><p>I refer the hon. Member for Barnsley Central to the answer I gave on 11 June 2018 to Questions <a href="https://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-question/Commons/2018-05-02/140737/" target="_blank">140737, 140738, 140739</a> and to the answer I gave on 18 July 2018 to Questions <a href="https://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-question/Commons/2018-07-10/162577/" target="_blank">162577, 162578</a>. These responses set out further details of the initiatives referred to in that letter.</p><p>We have launched a school improvement support offer which means schools eligible for support have access to up to 3 days free advice from a national leader of education (NLE). A subset of these schools, judged as 'requires improvement' in their last 2 Ofsted inspections, will have access of up to £16,000 of funded support to address the needs identified by the NLE. In the Sheffield City Region and across the North, a first cohort of schools is currently being offered school improvement support with further eligible schools to be identified later in 2019. In addition, there are 10 projects funded through the Strategic School Improvement Fund (SSIF) where the lead applicant is based in the Sheffield City Region. In total these projects have been awarded over £3 million. These are among the 57 SSIF projects where the lead applicant is based in the Northern Powerhouse area. In total, these projects have been awarded just over £20 million. The complete list of successful applicants is available here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/strategic-school-improvement-fund-successful-applicants/strategic-school-improvement-fund-ssif-successful-applicants" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/strategic-school-improvement-fund-successful-applicants/strategic-school-improvement-fund-ssif-successful-applicants</a>.</p><p>A further cohort of schools in the Sheffield City Region and across the North, identified as facing significant challenges with teacher recruitment and retention, is receiving funded support to address those issues.</p><p>The department is working closely with the social mobility partnership South Yorkshire Futures, on our shared aims of improving educational outcomes across the Sheffield City Region and has seconded 3 members of staff to support their programme. A link to the programme can be found here: <a href="https://southyorkshirefutures.co.uk/syf/?doing_wp_cron=1550062482.9984350204467773437500" target="_blank">https://southyorkshirefutures.co.uk/syf/?doing_wp_cron=1550062482.9984350204467773437500</a>.</p><p>5 of the 12 Department for Education-funded Opportunity Areas are in areas of low social mobility across the North, with the aim of improving educational outcomes and life chances for children and young people. Doncaster Opportunity Area is one of those areas and is working closely with South Yorkshire Futures on a number of their interventions. This includes work to improve teacher recruitment and retention in the county through funding newly qualified teacher mentoring and collaborating with the Sheffield City Region on our newly-launched Careers Hub, which aims to improve the quality of careers information, advice and guidance given to young people in the borough.</p><p>‘Educating the North’ recommended that the Opportunity Areas programme be extended to the North East. My right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State announced Opportunity North East in October 2018. The programme brings together North East leaders from education, local government and business to work together to improve outcomes for young people in the region. Through Opportunity North East the department will make a substantial investment in the region, including £12 million for the early roll-out of national reforms to improve support for new teachers, and a further £12 million to tackle the 5 key educational challenges identified for the area. Details of this announcement can be found here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/news/education-secretary-launches-24-million-programme-for-north-east" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/news/education-secretary-launches-24-million-programme-for-north-east</a>.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Local authorities are required to provide mainstream schools with sufficient funds to enable them to meet the additional cost of pupils with special educational needs and disabilities, up to the value of £6,000. This funding comes from the schools block of the dedicated schools grant. While authorities will identify a notional special educational needs (SEN) budget for each school within the school’s overall budget, that notional budget is not ring-fenced, and schools are expected to manage their overall budget to best meet the needs of all their pupils, including pupils with SEN.</p><p>When the costs of additional support required for a pupil with SEN exceed £6,000, the local authority should also allocate additional top-up funding to cover the excess costs. This top-up funding, and all funding for special schools comes from the local authority’s high needs budget. In December 2018, we announced an additional £250 million in high needs funding across the current financial year and the next, bringing Barnsley’s total high needs funding to £22.2 million in 2018-19.</p><p>The schools and high needs allocations for Barnsley since 2014-15 are as follows:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Year</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Schools</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>High needs</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014-15</p></td><td><p>£126.9 million</p></td><td><p>£18.4 million</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015-16</p></td><td><p>£132.1 million</p></td><td><p>£18.4 million</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016-17</p></td><td><p>£133.7 million</p></td><td><p>£18.9 million</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017-18</p></td><td><p>£137.4 million</p></td><td><p>£21.5 million</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2018-19</p></td><td><p>£142.9 million</p></td><td><p>£22.2 million</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p> </p><p>As funding for special needs in mainstream schools’ budgets is not ring-fenced, the information on how much top-up funding Barnsley Council has allocated to the schools in Barnsley is not held centrally. It is not possible to provide a meaningful comparison of the average allocation for special needs provision in schools in Barnsley and England.</p><p>However, it is possible for Barnsley Council to compare their high needs spending with that of other local authorities using our high needs benchmarking tool which can be found here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/high-needs-strategic-planning-fund" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/high-needs-strategic-planning-fund</a>.</p><p> </p>

Pupil Premium funding is only available to children attending state-funded schools or where a local authority is providing significant support for a child’s education. Where parents have decided to educate their children at home, they are only eligible for Pupil Premium if the local authority is providing such support. Similarly, pupil premium is available for pupils attending an independent school only where the local authority is paying all or part of the tuition fees. There are no plans to change this.</p><p>We have already extended support from Virtual School Heads and designated teachers to children adopted from outside England and Wales and are carefully considering other educational entitlements, including Pupil Premium Plus.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Our new criteria for free school meals eligibility are forecast to increase the number of children benefiting from this vital benefit by 2022, compared to under the previous benefits system. In addition, our transitional protections will mean that all children currently receiving a free meal will continue to do so.</p><p>In February, the government published an updated equality analysis on the criteria following a public consultation. Our overall assessment was that we expect children with a special educational need or disability, pupils attending schools with no religious character, and children from certain ethnic groups to benefit more than others from the estimated increase in the size of the free school meal cohort. These children were identified as more likely to benefit from the new criteria because they are considered more likely to come from households with earnings below the new eligibility threshold. We did not have evidence to suggest there will be any negative impact on children with other protected characteristics.</p>

The specific criteria are set by local authorities’ who have the overarching responsibility for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children in their area, and are best placed to set thresholds suited to the needs of local children and families. To support local areas and professionals in discharging their responsibility, the government issues statutory guidance on ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’, which was updated earlier this month.</p><p>The ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’ (2018) guidance is available here: <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/722305/Working_Together_to_Safeguard_Children_-_Guide.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/722305/Working_Together_to_Safeguard_Children_-_Guide.pdf</a>.</p>

This outlines our reform programme which seeks to: improve the quality of social work practice; create systems and environments where great social work can flourish; promote learning and multi-agency working where all involved in supporting children and families can work together; and support children who both enter and leave the care system. The reforms are designed to ensure that all vulnerable children and families receive the highest-quality care and support and that only those children who need to be are removed from their families and only then as a last resort. We have invested over £200 million through the Innovation Programme to test and develop better practice, including testing approaches to help vulnerable children to remain safely at home.</p><p> </p>

The Department for Education will also test how the teams can support vulnerable 16-18s and others not in school or college such as those in apprenticeships and other work-based learning.
