The local authority and the academy will usually come to an agreement, but if the academy refuses to admit the child, the local authority can ask the Secretary of State to direct them to do so.

star this property answer text <p>The Home Office has put in place a comprehensive vulnerability strategy to ensure that the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) is accessible for all, including children in care.</p><p><br>The Home office has been engaging with relevant stakeholders such as the Department for Education, Local Government Association and Association of Directors of Children’s Services to assess the needs of this group and ensure they are supported.</p><p><br>For England, Scotland and Wales local authorities (LAs) and for Northern Ireland Health and Social Care Trusts (HSCTs) will have responsibility in ensuring that applications are made on behalf of all looked after children for whom they have full parental responsibility and who are EEA citizens or family members and to assist with accessing services with status once granted.</p><p>If the child is cared for under shared care provisions, then it is LAs and HSCTs responsibility to ensure that the child, and their carers, are aware of the need to make an application to the EUSS, signposting and pointing them to practical support where needed.</p><p>LAs and HSCTs also have continuing duties to support care leavers and therefore have the responsibility to identify those eligible to apply to EUSS and to ensure that they make an application. Making an application to EUSS for those who are eligible and to keep an adequate record of applications and status granted should form part of the necessary pathway planning for care leavers ordinarily carried out by LAs and HSCTs in the discharge of their duties.</p><p>A child does not require consent from an adult in order to apply and can make their own application. However, children who have failed to make an application by the deadline as a result of a parent or guardian having failed to submit an application on their behalf would meet the criteria for being permissible to submit a late application.</p><p>It is not possible to apply for British citizenship under the EUSS. There is no requirement for any local authority to make an application for British citizenship on behalf of a looked after child: EEA and Swiss children, and the non-EEA children of EEA and Swiss citizens, can obtain the status they need to remain in the UK by making a free application to the EUSS. As there is no need for LAs or HSCTs to make applications for citizenship there is no reason why any of the costs of doing so should be incurred, unless the LA or HSCT voluntarily chooses to do so.</p><p>Obtaining identity documents should be a familiar process for LAs and HSCT due to these documents being required in other circumstances.</p><p><br>The Home Office has introduced a range of support including up to £9 mil-lion grant funding for voluntary and community organisations, assisted digital support and support via the EU Settlement Scheme Resolution Centre.</p><p><br>A New Burdens Assessment has also been produced in collaboration with key stakeholders representing local authorities and children’s social services to ensure they are funded to identify and support eligible EEA children and family members in care.</p><p><br>The EUSS has been designed to be streamlined and user-friendly, and the majority of applicants will be able to apply without the need for general advice from a lawyer on rights to enter or remain required as a result of the Bill.</p><p>As the scheme is free to apply and simple to navigate, it is not anticipated that applicants will need legal aid but it will be available to some particularly vulnerable individuals. Legislation will also be introduced to bring immigration matters for separated migrant children into the scope of legal aid, meaning this group will get support in securing their immigration rights. Legal aid may also be available through the Exceptional Case Funding scheme where a failure to provide legal aid would breach, or risk breaching, ECHR or enforceable EU law rights.</p><p>The Home Office has created and issued guidance about the EUSS to help LAs and HSCTs understand their responsibilities for supporting looked after children and care leavers and how to apply. The EUSS has been designed to be as simple as possible, but we have committed to working with applicants, and those supporting them, to ensure they obtain the status they need where required. The guidance is clear that where necessary, because of case complexity, or if there is any doubt about how to proceed, that the LA or HSCT may consider obtaining independent legal advice, in line with their own organisation’s processes and policies.</p><p><br>Some of the voluntary and community organisations who receive support from the grant funding will also be able to provide legal advice.</p><p>Swiss citizens continue to enjoy the same rights and status as EEA citizens while the UK remains a member of the EU. Like EEA citizens, they can protect those rights and obtain a permanent UK immigration status by applying to the EUSS by 31 December 2020.</p><p>In the event that the UK leaves the EU without a deal eligible EEA and Swiss citizens, and their family members, resident in the UK by the date that the UK leaves the EU, will have until 31 December 2020 to make an application to the EUSS. However, the Government has confirmed that it will take a proportionate approach to those that miss the deadline and make provision for those with a good reason for missing it to apply later. A child whose parent or guardian fail to make an application on their behalf would meet this criteria.</p>

star this property answer text <p>During my evidence to the Education Committee, I inadvertently said that around 30% of care leavers end up as adults in prison. The point that I was seeking to make was that care leavers are over-represented in the criminal justice system. This is based on the findings from a number of research studies which have reported on the backgrounds of prisoners. These include a Ministry of Justice report published in 2014, which indicated that 24% of the prisoners surveyed had been in care at some point during their childhood. It also includes a report published in 2011 by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Prisons, which stated that 27% of the young men and 55% of the young women surveyed had spent time in care.</p><p>In relation to the proportion of care leavers overall who end up in prison, the latest data published by the department for the period ending March 2017 shows that 4% of care leavers aged 19 to 21 were in custody at the point when the data was collected.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is taking steps to support greater integration of care to make the best use of existing resources, including the significant additional funding for children and young people’s mental health that NHS England will make available under its Long Term Plan.</p><p>The Government has already introduced requirements under special educational needs and disability (SEND) legislation for joint commissioning across education, health and social care. The Department and NHS England ran a training pilot designed to build links between schools and colleges and NHS services, which will be rolled out across England starting later this year. The Department is coordinating work with the higher education sector to improve support for students as they move to university.</p><p>The priority given to 0-25 mental health services under the Long Term Plan has the potential to support this work. In particular, it can allow greater continuity of support for vulnerable children for whom other support already extends beyond 18, and for university students.</p><p>Local decision making is important to ensure this change supports the effective use of resources. The additional £1.4 billion made available to develop capacity and capability across the system from 2015-20 has already started to result in increased provision. The funding is linked to local transformation plans, drawn up by clinical commissioning groups with other local partners, which are intended to cover the all provision from prevention to specialist services.</p><p>The introduction of new mental health support teams linked to schools and colleges will be an important part of developing collaboration between education and health services. These teams will be based in and near schools and colleges and make links to other services, including social care and the voluntary sector. The first 25 trailblazer areas will be fully operational by the end of 2019.</p>
