unstar this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the challenges of helping those with the most complex health conditions move closer to work. The new Personal Support Package announced in <em>Improving Lives: The Work, Health and Disability </em>Green Paper introduces a range of new measures and interventions designed as part of a package of support which can be tailored to people’s individual needs. The offer, which applies to all Employment and Support Allowance claimants (and Universal Credit equivalents), includes personal support from disability trained, accredited work coaches, with a focus on mental health. Work coaches will be supported by an additional 300 Disability Employment Advisers and around 200 new community partners with disability expertise and local knowledge. This will lead to better signposting to other local voluntary and public sector services that may be available. A copy of the Green Paper is attached.</p><p> </p><p>The Government recognises that more needs to be done to help people stay well at work, including those with complex health conditions. The consultation on the Green Paper will help us to consider appropriate new models of support to help more people with disabilities or long term conditions to enter and remain in work.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>We have already announced over £1bn funding for the early years entitlements within the ring-fenced Dedicated Schools Grant by 2019-20, which includes £300m to uplift the funding rate to providers. We are also providing protection for high needs funding that will ensure that the level of funding rises in proportion to the number of children, including those under 5. This will mean that local authorities continue to have the flexibility to target funding where it is most needed to help children with special educational needs and disabilities and their families, including the youngest children. Further consideration will be given to funding for children with special educational needs in early years education as part of our consultation later this year.</p><p> </p><p>Local authorities are required by law to secure free entitlement places for parents that want their child to take them up. The Government is committed to ensuring that all families have access to high quality, flexible and affordable childcare and parents with children with special educational needs should have the same opportunities as other parents through access to high quality childcare. The Children and Families Act requires local authorities to have a ‘local offer’ which includes a statement on how they intend to tailor the childcare on offer for children with special educational needs and disabilities. Early implementation of 30 hours from September 2016 provides a real opportunity to develop innovative approaches to providing flexible childcare for working parents whose children are disabled or have special educational needs.</p><p> </p><p>Through Early Implementation, York, Northumberland, Newham and Wigan are among 8 Local Authorities delivering the 30 hours entitlement from September 2016, a year earlier than planned. This will include delivering targeted places focusing on children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.</p><p> </p><p>They will also be supported by Early Implementer Innovator areas including Brighton and Hove, Hampshire and Trafford, who will test the offer and how it works under specific circumstances, including developing approaches to support children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>I refer my Noble Lady to the answer given on 8 March to PQ 29737, which I have also set out below:</p><p>The Department for Education recognises that play has an important role in supporting all young children to develop and prepare for later learning.</p><p> </p><p>Play is covered in the statutory Early Years Foundation Stage framework which states: “Each area of learning and development must be implemented through planned, purposeful play and through a mix of adult-led and child-initiated activity.”</p><p> </p><p>The staff working in early years settings as Early Years Educators (level 3) and Early Years Teachers (graduates) are required to have an understanding different pedagogical approaches, including the role of play in supporting early learning and development. The criteria for the Early Years Educator and standards for Early Years Teacher Status qualifications are set by the department.</p><p> </p><p>Ofsted registers childcare provision on the Early Years Register and the General Childcare Register and conducts a regular cycle of inspection to ensure that provision meets the required quality and safety standards.</p><p> </p><p>In judging the quality and standards of early years provision, Ofsted inspectors must assess the extent to which the learning and care provided by the setting meets the needs of the range of children who attend, including the needs of any children who have special educational needs or disabilities. At August 2015, 85 per cent of providers on the Early Years Register were rated good or outstanding for overall effectiveness. This is an increase of 11 percentage points since 2012.</p><p> </p><p>Local Authorities provide and offer Continuous Professional Development and training to early years settings; some of which may include training on play. However, it is not a requirement for local authorities to deliver regional play training as it is already a requirement in the Early Years Foundation Stage to cover play in a setting.</p>
