star this property answer text <p>Support for Mortgage Interest is designed to provide protection against the threat of repossession. The new loans system provides exactly the same level of support and provides exactly the same level of protection from repossession as the previous system. We continue to work closely with the lending industry to ensure the scheme delivers its intended aim. The conversion of SMI from a benefit to a loan is estimated to save around £140m in welfare spending.</p><p> </p><p>The Department is using evidence from a number of sources to assess the impact of the conversion to a loan on an on-going basis, including management information on claimant take up and feedback from stakeholder groups, including via our regular liaison with UK Finance, to assess whether there are unintended consequences for particular groups.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Serious Violence Strategy sets out the importance of a multi-agency approach to tackling serious violence which involves a range of partners and agencies. The strategy places a strong emphasis on early intervention and tackling the root causes of the problem to prevent young people from being drawn into violence in the first place.</p><p>Voluntary sector organisations are essential in helping the Government to deliver on our commitments in the strategy. We have provided support to a number of voluntary sector partners to help tackle serious violence, including through the £1.5m we made available for grassroots projects through our anti-knife crime Community Fund in 2018/19 and making available £22m through our Early Intervention Youth Fund through which we have already invested £17.7m in 29 projects across England and Wales. We will be evaluating the projects and sharing information and learning across all areas to assist voluntary and community sector organisations to continue to provide the best support to young people to tackle serious violence.</p><p>In addition, the £200m Youth Endowment Fund, announced by the Home Secretary last October, will deliver a ten-year programme of grants that will enable interventions targeted at children and young people who are at most risk. It will act as a centre of expertise; finding out which approaches are most effective; generating, disseminating and promoting new knowledge and practice to transform local and national responses.</p>

star this property answer text <p>HM Courts and Tribunals Service (HCMTS) is taking positive steps to reduce the waiting time for appeals to be heard in the Social Security and Child Support (SSCS) jurisdiction. In 2018, 232 medical members and 118 disability-qualified members were additionally appointed to the SSCS jurisdiction and an extra 129 fee-paid judges have recently been appointed. The SSCS jurisdiction will also benefit from 100 salaried judges and 170 fee-paid judges being recruited across tribunals more widely. In addition, HMCTS is developing a new digital system with a view to enabling speedier processing of appeals and a better service for all parties to the proceedings. Case-management “triage” sessions are also being conducted, with the aim of reducing the number of cases that need to progress to an oral hearing.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>It is for the governing body of a school (or an academy trust, in the case of academies) to decide whether there should be a school uniform policy, and if so, what it should be. It is also for the governing body to decide how the uniform should be sourced.</p><p>In 2015, the Department commissioned the ‘Cost of School Uniform Survey’ which provides the most recent information the Department holds on the cost of school uniform. The findings of the survey are available here: <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/436576/RR474_Cost_of_school_uniform.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/436576/RR474_Cost_of_school_uniform.pdf</a>.</p><p>The cost of uniform should not act as a barrier to obtaining a good school place. No school uniform should be so expensive as to leave pupils or their families feeling unable to apply to, or attend, a school of their choice. The current guidance on uniform sets out that a school should ensure that its school uniform policy is fair and reasonable for all its students.</p><p>The Department’s guidance is available at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/school-uniform" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/school-uniform</a>.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Academy trusts are free to set their own salaries for all teaching, support and senior management roles. However, we expect these to be justifiable and to reflect accurately the role. Trusts are not obliged to follow the statutory system set out in the independent School Teachers’ Review Body; although trusts can choose to follow the terms of the school teachers' pay and conditions document in relation to teachers and school leaders and local government employee designation for non-teaching staff.</p><p>The government is clear about expectations on pay for all schools, and not just academy trusts. Where trusts are paying high salaries, the government will publicly challenge trusts and boards to justify themselves. We have been doing so for more than a year; and will continue to do so throughout 2019. The latest published data confirms that only 4% of trusts pay one or more salary over £150,000 and the mean average salary for an academy secondary headteacher is £92,400 and £88,800 for a maintained secondary headteacher. In addition, a recent survey of 1000 academies[1] found that the salary for executive leaders declined in 5 of the 6 categories based on pupil numbers in the trust.</p><p> </p><p>[1] <a href="https://www.jamescowperkreston.co.uk/benchmark-report/" target="_blank">https://www.jamescowperkreston.co.uk/benchmark-report/</a>.</p>
