Core funding for schools and high needs has risen from almost £41 billion in 2017-18 to £42.4 billion this year and will rise further to £43.5 billion in 2019-20. The Department allows head teachers to use their funding in a way they feel achieves the best outcomes for pupils.</p><p> </p><p>From 2013 to March 2019, the Department is providing £5.3 million for pupils and teachers from state-funded secondary schools in England to participate in battlefield tours of the Western Front. The Department is also funding a series of roadshows from 2016 to December 2018, to enable pupils to debate the causes, conduct and consequences of World War I with a panel of experts.</p><p> </p><p>Moreover, in the recent Budget the Government committed a further £1million for 2019-20 for further World War I battlefield visits for school students to mark the centenary of World War I Armistice and the sacrifices made.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department considers the health and safety of staff and pupils in school as paramount. Since 2015, the Department has allocated £5.6 billion to those responsible for school buildings and for essential maintenance, including removing or encapsulating asbestos when it is the safest course of action to do so. In addition, through the £4.4 billion Priority School Building Programme, the Department is rebuilding or refurbishing buildings in the worst condition in over 500 schools across the country. Asbestos is a factor in choosing which schools to re-build.</p><p>Advice from the Health and Safety Executive is that if asbestos is unlikely to be damaged or disturbed, then it is best managed in situ. The blanket and accelerated removal of asbestos in schools is potentially a more dangerous and greater risk to pupils and staff. Any decision to remove asbestos is taken on a case by case basis, based on the risk of exposure and the work to be undertaken. While asbestos will be removed over time from the school estate as part of any rebuilding or refurbishment programme, the Department has not committed to the phased removal of all asbestos by a specific date.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government’s top priority is to make sure teaching continues to be an attractive and fulfilling profession, which is why my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for Education announced in March 2018 that the Department will be developing a new teacher recruitment and retention strategy.</p><p> </p><p>The strategy provides an opportunity to take a long-term look at the teacher workforce to determine how best to provide sufficient high-quality teachers. It will build on the work already being done to support the profession, including clarifying the accountability system, extending the induction period, increasing the support available to newly qualified teachers and providing tailored recruitment support for schools. The Department is working closely with the sector, teaching unions and professional bodies to develop this.</p><p> </p><p>Reducing workload is an important part of improving teacher morale. The Department has accepted the Workload Advisory Group recommendations in full and has confirmed its support to help reduce workload in schools. The workload reduction toolkit, published in July 2018, provides accessible materials, including practical advice, tools and case studies that school leaders, teachers and other staff can use to address workload issues in their school. This toolkit can be found here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/workload-reduction-toolkit" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/workload-reduction-toolkit</a>.</p><p>More widely, schools and academy trusts as employers are responsible for the wellbeing of the staff they employ, including non-teaching staff.</p>
