star this property answer text <p>We are making a significant investment in free school meals for children. Nutritious food in schools helps ensure pupils are well nourished, develop healthy eating habits and can concentrate and learn. We ensure that the most disadvantaged children receive a free healthy lunch at school and in 2019, around 1.3 million disadvantaged children benefitted from this important provision, saving families roughly £400 a year.</p><p> </p><p>Free meals were also extended to disadvantaged further education students in September 2014. In addition, universal infant free school meals were introduced in 2014, and the department spends around £600 million each year ensuring 1.4 million infants receive a free meal through this programme. We have confirmed the funding arrangements for this provision for the current academic year, and arrangements for 2020/21 will be confirmed in due course.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>No child or young person should be held back from reaching their potential, including those with complex special needs and disabilities such as an Acquired Brain Injury. This is why we have announced £780 million of additional high needs funding for next year (2020-21), which is an increase of 12% compared to this year, bringing the total amount for supporting those with the most complex needs to £7.2 billion. This will be the largest year-on-year increase since the high needs funding block was created in 2013.</p><p>Every local authority will see an increase in high needs funding of at least 8% per head of population aged 2 to 18. Sunderland will receive £28.4 million in high needs funding. This will provide valuable extra resources so that support is in place to make sure that no pupil or student is left behind.</p><p>When deciding on the provision to be made for a particular child or young person with a special educational need or disability (SEND), schools and local authorities must have regard to the SEND Code of Practice. The SEND Code of Practice is clear that professionals working with children and young people with SEND should involve the parents or the young person at every stage of planning and reviewing support and take account of their wishes, feelings and perspectives.</p><p>If a child or young person has an Education, Health and Care plan, the plan should set out exactly what support they should be receiving.</p><p>Every school is also required to have a policy in place to support pupils with medical conditions and this should be easily accessible for school staff and parents or carers. Governing bodies have a duty to ensure that arrangements are put in place.</p><p>The SEND system focuses on what works to meet a child’s need rather than the starting point of what condition does this child have.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination for boys aged 12-13 was rolled out nationally in September 2019. There are no plans for a catch-up HPV vaccination programme for older males as evidence suggests that they are already benefitting greatly from the indirect protection, known as herd protection, that has built up from 10 years of the girls’ HPV vaccination programme. The priority is to make sure that as many eligible 12-13-year-old boys and girls as possible are offered protection from HPV infection from the 2019-20 school year.</p><p>In April 2018, the HPV vaccination programme was extended to include men who have sex with men offering protection for males at particularly high risk up to the age of 45.</p><p>The current United Kingdom approach is supported by the best available evidence and by recommendations from our independent experts, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
