star this property answer text <p>Local authorities are under a statutory obligation to provide accommodation for unaccompanied children who arrive in their area. This means that they become looked after children and should be safeguarded and have their welfare promoted in the same way as any other looked after child. To help support this, the government has revised the ‘Statutory guidance on the care of unaccompanied migrant children and child victims of modern slavery’, which was published 1 November 2017: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/care-of-unaccompanied-and-trafficked-children" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/care-of-unaccompanied-and-trafficked-children</a>.</p><p>The government recognises that unaccompanied asylum seeking and refugee children can be some of the most vulnerable in our society. The government’s vision and additional commitment to caring for these children is set out in the strategy for ‘Safeguarding unaccompanied asylum seeking and refugee children’, published 1 November 2017: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/safeguarding-unaccompanied-asylum-seeking-and-refugee-children" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/safeguarding-unaccompanied-asylum-seeking-and-refugee-children</a>.</p><p> </p>

For example, GSCE exam results (including attainment 8 and Progress 8 measures), the early years foundation stage profile; phonics screening check, key stage 1, key stage 2, numbers of tribunal cases (including the number decided in the appellant’s favour), and destinations data (the numbers going into further and higher education, and employment), absence and exclusions data.</p><p> </p><p>We have also started looking at longer-term outcomes for special educational needs (SEN) pupils. This has been possible through analysis of the longitudinal educational outcomes (LEO) dataset. This dataset, for the first time, brings together information about learners including: personal characteristics such as gender and ethnicity; education, including schools, colleges and higher education institution attended, courses taken and qualifications achieved; PAYE and self-assessed employment and income data from Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs; and data on benefits claims from the Department of Work and Pensions.</p><p> </p><p>Initial analysis relating to longer term employment and benefit outcomes of SEN pupils was published in July 2018. This analysis was based on those who completed key stage 4 in academic years 2002/03 and 2003/04. The data can be accessed via: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/school-and-labour-market-outcomes-by-pupil-characteristics" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/school-and-labour-market-outcomes-by-pupil-characteristics</a>.</p><p> </p><p>The corporate parenting principles, which local authorities must have regard to, require them to secure the best possible outcomes for looked after children and young people. The principles include promoting high aspirations, their health, stability in their homes lives and preparing them for adulthood and independence.

star this property answer text <p>We have not assessed the team around the child approach, however some models of help and protection have been evaluated by the Children’s Social Care Innovation Programme (CSCIP), which found that the use of multi-disciplinary skill sets in supporting children and families was a key feature of successful projects. The evaluation of Project Crewe demonstrated early promise through their use of family practitioners to lead multi-agency support under the supervision of a social worker. This model is being tested further by Coventry City Council under the CSCIP round three.</p><p>Statutory guidance, ‘Working together to safeguard children 2018’: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/working-together-to-safeguard-children--2" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/working-together-to-safeguard-children--2</a>, makes clear that when it comes to early help, children and families may benefit from co-ordinated support from local agencies, and it is right that organisations work together to assess the need for support, and provide targeted services that improve the outcomes for children.</p>

Many of them also provide specialist SEND support to other providers.</p><p>In recognition of the costs that MNS experience over and above other providers, we are providing supplementary funding – additional to funding received under the Early Years National Funding Formula (EYNFF) – of around £60 million a year. This will enable local authorities to protect MNS pre-EYNFF funding levels until at least 2019-20.</p><p>In deciding what should happen after 2019-20, we want to ensure that decisions about the future of MNS are based on evidence.

star this property answer text <p>The department does not collect specific information on the numbers of parents/guardians who access respite care. However, The Children and Families Act (2014) provides a framework to ensure that children with autism are identified early and receive the support they need. A disabled child would fall under the category of a child in need and parents, guardians or professionals could make a referral to the local authority children’s services who are best placed to assess the needs and priorities of disabled children in their area.</p><p>Information regarding how much local authorities have planned to spend on their short breaks/respite provision through the authorities’ annual section 251 returns can be found here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/statistics-local-authority-school-finance-data" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/statistics-local-authority-school-finance-data</a>.</p><p>Giving children and young people with autism the right start in life is hugely important in ensuring that they can have successful and rewarding lives. We want all children, no matter what their special educational need or disability, to be able to reach their full potential and receive the right support to succeed in their education and as they move into adult life. That is why we have put in place significant reforms, aimed at making the system less confrontational and promoting better involvement of parents and a real focus on outcomes and transition to adult life.</p>
