star this property answer text <p>The department does not have the facility to allow staff to join a credit union through payroll deductions. This is because our employees have access to many other means of support including: arrangements to contribute to a credit union via direct debit; the opportunity to request salary advances; season ticket loans; and a tenancy rental deposit scheme. The department also encourages staff to make use of the Employee Assistance Programme to access support and advice on financial management where required.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>This government has taken significant steps to raise the living standards of low-income families, including introducing the National Living Wage, raising the personal tax allowance so no-one pays tax on the first £12,500 earned and improving financial incentives to work. The government is committed to delivering a country that works for everyone and I want to ensure that all children have access to healthy food and enriching activities during the school holidays. Last year I announced £2 million for projects to deliver this sort of provision, free to disadvantaged pupils during the 2018 summer holidays. We are more than quadrupling that amount for the 2019 summer holidays where we will be exploring how the local coordination of this sort of provision can help more disadvantaged pupils to access free high quality holiday club provision during the school holidays.</p><p> </p><p>The information requested on data on the number of free school meals served in each local authority is not held centrally. However, data on the number of pupils eligible for and claiming free school meals in state-funded schools for each local authority is available here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/schools-pupils-and-their-characteristics-january-2018" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/schools-pupils-and-their-characteristics-january-2018</a>.</p><p>Accompanying this answer is a table showing the number of holiday clubs the Department for Education funded within each local authority, through its summer 2018 Holiday Activities and Food Research Fund. Please note that the total number of clubs included in this table is greater than the 283 clubs referred to in the ‘management information release’ related to this fund due to some clubs not returning usable management information. The management release is available here: <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/755139/Holiday_Activities_and_Food_2018_Programme_revised.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/755139/Holiday_Activities_and_Food_2018_Programme_revised.pdf</a>.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The department’s statutory guidance for schools, ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ (KCSIE), already makes clear that schools should record all of their concerns, discussions and decisions regarding safeguarding, and the reasons for those decisions, in writing.</p><p> </p><p>The department recently strengthened KCSIE and introduced a new Part 5. This provides guidance on managing reports of child on child sexual violence and sexual harassment. The guidance is clear that the starting point for schools is to pass reports of rape, assault by penetration or sexual assault to the police.</p><p> </p><p>Ofsted inspectors must always evaluate the effectiveness of how schools keep their pupils safe. If inspectors are made aware of safeguarding issues during the inspection process, they will check that these have been acted on . If inspectors find evidence they have not been dealt with this would be reflected in the judgement awarded to the school. If serious safeguarding concerns are reported to Ofsted outside of the inspection cycle, it can of course bring forward the inspection of a school.</p><p> </p>
