unstar this property answer text <p>The government supports the provision of nutritious food in schools, which ensures pupils are well nourished, develop healthy eating habits and can concentrate and learn. Under the benefits based criteria, around 1.1 million of the most disadvantaged children are eligible for and claiming free school meals – saving families around £400 per year. Benefits based free meals were extended to disadvantaged further education students in September 2014. A further 1.5 million infants receive a free nutritious meal under the Universal Infant Free School Meals scheme. We are also investing up to £26 million to the National Schools Breakfast Programme. This money will kick start or improve breakfast clubs in over 1,700 schools and target the most disadvantaged areas of the country, including Opportunity Areas.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Swimming is a vital life skill. That is why we have made sure that swimming and water safety is compulsory in the national curriculum for PE at primary levels (key stages 1 and 2). The curriculum sets out the expectation that all pupils should be taught to:</p><ul><li>swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres;</li><li>use a range of strokes effectively; and</li><li>perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.</li></ul><p>The department does not collect data on the number of swimming lessons provided by individual schools. Schools have the freedom to choose the swimming programme to meet the needs of their pupils.</p><p>All primary schools must report annually on the percentage of pupils who can meet the national curriculum requirements for swimming by the end of KS2 as a condition of the primary PE and sport premium funding. Since September 2017, schools can use this premium to provide top-up swimming for those pupils who are not able to meet the national curriculum requirements after completing their primary school swimming lessons.</p><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text <p>All schools must promote integration, and social cohesion whatever their character and ethos. The Department’s consultation document, ‘Schools that work for everyone’<em>,</em> set out proposals to replace the 50% cap on faith admissions in faith free schools with new safeguards to support inclusivity and integration. These are aimed at building on existing inclusivity requirements and those to promote fundamental British values to help ensure children and young people are prepared for life in modern Britain. The Department plans to respond to the proposals in ‘Schools that work for everyone’ in due course.</p> more like this
