star this property answer text <p>DCMS works with the Libraries Taskforce and local and central government to promote good practice and innovation to sustain and improve library services provided by local authorities in England, including in Barnet. Library services in England can help transform lives, communities and society as a whole, including in relation to children by supporting them to develop and enjoy their reading; to learn and study; and to take part in events and activities. For instance, the annual Summer Reading Challenge, run by The Reading Agency, promotes reading for children at their local libraries and has resulted in many thousands of children aged 4 – 11 joining a library and accessing library services.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, DCMS provided £3.9 million to the Libraries: Opportunities for Everyone innovation fund to enable library services to trial innovative projects that would benefit disadvantaged people and places in England. These included a number of projects which promoted children’s access to library services.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The School Admissions Code 2012 requires all state-funded schools to give admission priority to looked-after and previously looked-after children. [1]</p><p>In May this year the Department issued additional guidance to clarify its position for school admission authorities in relation to children adopted from local authority care. This was to ensure that all children adopted from local authority care in England and Wales should have the highest priority rather than restricting priority to those children adopted from care under the Adoption and Children Act 2002.</p><p>The most recent report of the Office of the Schools Adjudicator indicates that this requirement has been met in most of the arrangements seen by adjudicators (<a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/307182/osa_annual_report_12-13.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/307182/osa_annual_report_12-13.pdf</a>) but acknowledges there is more to be done to ensure that all schools comply fully with this requirement.</p><p>The Children and Families Act 2014 included a new provision to place the role of Virtual School Head (VSH) on a statutory footing. VSHs have a role in promoting the education of the children their authority looks after and that includes ensuring everyone understands the requirements in the Code.</p><p> </p><p>[1] Previously looked-after children are those who have been adopted from care and those who left care under a Special Guardianship Order or Residence (now Child Arrangements) Order.</p><p> </p>

These students are required to pay full-fees covering education and boarding.</p><p>State-funded boarding schools cannot charge for education but charge full cost for boarding provision.</p><p>Admission to state-funded boarding schools and academies is limited to children who are nationals of the UK and are eligible to hold a full UK passport, or those who are nationals of other European Economic Area countries or those who have the right of residence in the UK. Pupils that board will include British children and children from other European Economic Area countries who live anywhere overseas.</p><p>In addition to the 40 state-funded schools and academies, providing boarding for mainstream pupils, where parents/carers pay fees, there are also special schools and academies that provide residential provision. There are 91 maintained special schools with residential provision and 15 academy special schools with residential provision. These schools are state funded and pupils do not pay fees.</p><p>Data on the pupils enrolled at all maintained schools, academies (including free schools, studio schools and university technical colleges) and non‑maintained special schools, is collected via the school census. The school census captures a wide range of information including pupil headcount, special educational needs, eligibility for free school meals, first language, ethnicity and whether a pupil is a boarder. However, the school census does not collect data on pupil nationality.</p>
