The indicator was not used in the day-to-day management of prisons and NOMS had concerns over the burden on the frontline of collecting the information. Indicators introduced into prison SLAs in respect of rehabilitation, resettlement and work in prisons provide a better demonstration of the efforts to equip prisoners to be less likely to offend on release.</p><p> </p><p>Work in prisons is a key priority to ensure prisoners are engaged purposefully whilst they are in custody. It also gives them the opportunity to learn skills and a work ethic which can increase their chances of finding employment on release, a key element to reducing reoffending.</p><p> </p><p>The number of prisoners working in industrial activity in public sector prisons increased from around 8,600 in 2010-11 to around 9,700 in 2012-13. This delivered an increase in the total hours worked in industrial activities from 10.6 million hours to 13.1 million hours. The average hours per week spent in education has increased since 2010.</p><p> </p><p>In addition there are substantial numbers of prisoners who work to keep prisons running on tasks such as cooking, serving meals, maintenance and cleaning.</p><p> </p><p>Our reforms to the Incentives and Earned Privileges national policy framework came into effect in adult prisons on 1 November 2013. Prisoners will be expected to engage in purposeful activity, as well as demonstrate a commitment towards their rehabilitation, reduce their risk of reoffending, behave well and help others if they are to earn privileges.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Figures are published in the NOMS Annual Report Management Information Addendum: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/225225/mi-addendum.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/225225/mi-addendum.pdf</a></p>

From 2 February 2015, The Manchester College has held the OLASS contract for London.</p><p>The Skills Funding Agency introduced funding changes that base payment to providers on learner achievement when new prison education contracts (OLASS4) commenced in August 2012. Prior to this, providers were paid on the basis of the teaching hours they were programmed to deliver. Direct comparisons between OLASS funding prior to the 2012/13 academic year and now cannot be made.</p><p>The table below sets out OLASS initial contract values for HMP Wormwood Scrubs from the 2012/13 academic year.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Academic Year</p></td><td><p>OLASS initial contract values for HMP Wormwood Scrubs</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012/13</p></td><td><p>£1,112,600</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013/14</p></td><td><p>£1,581,000</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014/15</p></td><td><p>£1,360,600</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p><strong>Notes:</strong></p><p> </p><p>1) Figures rounded to nearest 000s</p><p> </p><p>2) In 2012/13 the Agency did not include details of prison level allocations within its contract documentation. The figure given is representative of the proportion of funding available for use at the prison for adult OLASS programme.</p><p> </p><p>3) In 2013/14 the Agency included details of prison level allocations within its contract documentation. This sets out the value expected to be used for delivery of adult OLASS programme at the prison.</p><p> </p><p>4) In 2014/15 the Agency has held 2 contracts for delivery of adult OLASS. The first contract was for the period 1 August 2014 to 31 January 2015. The second is for the period 1 February 2015 to 31 July 2015. The figure given is for the adult OLASS programme elements of these contracts for use at the prison.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The overall value of the OLASS contract for HMP Wormwood Scrubs changed, during the 2013/14 academic year and after January 2014, as set out in the table below.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Initial contract for 2013/14 for HMP Wormwood Scrubs</p></td><td><p>£1,581,000</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Variation 1</p></td><td><p>£1,852,000</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Variation 2</p></td><td><p>£979,000</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p><strong>Notes:</strong></p><p> </p><p>1) Figures rounded to nearest 000s</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Art, Design and Media Studies were taught at HMP Wormwood Scrubs as part of the OLASS learning offer during the first part of the 1014/15 academic year: there was no art, design and media department at the prison. Following an Ofsted inspection and a curriculum review, a local decision was taken to withdraw provision for art, design and media studies and to focus delivery more on maths and English. We do not hold prison-level learner enrolment information centrally.</p><p> </p>

Attainment is supported if students have good health and mental wellbeing and when they have access to specialist mental health services where they need it.</p><p>The Government is investing an additional £1.4bn in children’s mental health this Parliament. Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) across the country have worked with partners, including schools and colleges, to produce local transformation plans for children and young people’s mental health services. These should set out what will be done locally to make the best use of the resources available – changing how child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) are delivered in response to the challenges set out in the Future in Mind report and increasing the focus on preventative activity. NHS England has put the plans through an assurance process before releasing funds and is carrying out an analysis of plans to identify practice that can be shared to inform future planning.</p><p>In addition we have contributed to a £3m joint pilot with NHS England which is testing how single points of contact in CAMHS and schools can secure effective mental health support to pupils. The pilots are involving over 250 schools in 27 CCG areas through joint training, which supports schools and CAMHS leads to identify specific activity to improve support in their area.</p><p>The Department of Health has commissioned a new survey into the prevalence of mental health conditions in children and young people in England, the first since 2004. They expect this to be published in 2018.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>We have had one piece of correspondence on milk from a school in recent months. The Department does not collect data on the consumption of milk. The revised School Food Standards are effective from 1 January 2015 and designed to be easier to read and implement. A full public consultation on the School Food Standards regulations was held between 6 March and 16 April 2014. All schools were subsequently notified of the guidance through our termly communications with schools.

unstar this property answer text <p>Global food security is dependent on a number of factors including increasing production sustainably, reducing waste and ensuring open markets around the world to facilitate trade. The UK’s current production to supply ratio is 76% for indigenous-type foods and 60% for all foods. This has remained steady over the last decade and is not low in the context of the last 150 years. Self-sufficiency is not in itself an indicator of food security. The UK sources food from a diverse range of countries, in addition to a strong domestic production base.</p><p> </p><p>As our manifesto set out, the Government wants to see an efficient, productive and competitive domestic farming industry able to grow more, sell more and export more of our fantastic British food. As we leave the EU, we have the chance to design a new approach to agricultural policy which supports increased farming productivity through innovation, technology and skills</p> more like this
