The following table provides the total funding by the LSC for Reading Young Offender Institution, housing 18 to 20-year-olds, for the academic years for which figures are available. Education for those aged 18 and over in young adult custody is not compulsory and therefore allocations are not calculated on a 'per head' basis. These figures do not include spend on learning outside the scope of LSC funded provision. Those figures are not collected centrally.
|Academic year||Total allocation|
|(1) Includes £49,250 for the purchase of learning equipment.|
Ms Diana R. Johnson [holding answer 5 November 2009]: There are more than 900 independent faith schools registered with the Department for Children, Schools and Families. A school can seek faith designation at any time, so an answer to this question could be provided only by examining the date at which individual schools sought designation, and the payments made after that time. Therefore this question could be answered only at disproportionate cost.
Andrew Stunell: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many pupils (a) eligible and (b) ineligible for free school meals did not sit GCSE examinations in five or more subjects in (i) 2008, (ii) 2007, (iii) 2006 and (iv) 2005. 
|Pupils at the end of key stage 4 who did not sit GCSE or equivalent examinations in five or more subjects|

These figures have been derived from the National Pupil Database and cover pupils at the end of key stage 4 in maintained schools only.
Michael Gove: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many pupils in receipt of free school meals achieved five GCSEs, including a science, mathematics, English and history in (a) 1997, (b) 2003, (c) 2008 and (d) 2009. 
Michael Gove: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many (a) comprehensive, (b) maintained and (c) independent schools had an operational combined cadet force in (i) 2005, (ii) 2007, (iii) 2008 and (iv) 2009.

Michael Gove: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many (a) comprehensive school and (b) maintained school pupils were members of their school's Combined Cadet Force in (i) 2005, (ii) 2007, (iii) 2008 and (iv) 2009. 
Information is only available for state schools as a category. The number of state school pupils who were members of their school Combined Cadet Force, as at 1 April in the years requested, is as follows:
In addition, there are 25 known partnerships where independent schools with Combined Cadet Forces provide cadet places to neighbouring state schools; for these partnerships it is not possible to identify the numbers of state school cadets.
Ms Diana R. Johnson: Personal, social, health and emotional (PSHE) education already includes the provision of information about how to lead healthy lifestyles, as well as body image and health issues and offers an opportunity for children and young people to develop confidence on these issues.
At key stage 2, the current non-statutory content includes learning about healthy lifestyles and how the body changes with the approach of puberty; key stage 3 covers learning about physical and emotional changes that take place at this time and the factors that contribute to an individual's personal wellbeing.
The programmes of study are written at a high level and set out only the broad topics that should be covered in PSHE. This therefore allows flexibility for schools on how they present learning in areas such as body confidence.
Guidance is to be produced in early 2010 to support schools teaching PSHE education, and individuals and organisations with a particular interest in body confidence will be consulted on how best this can be covered in the guidance.
Tim Loughton: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families which (a) primary maintained, (b) secondary maintained and (c) special schools were classified by Ofsted as having (i) outstanding and (ii) inadequate leadership at their most recent inspection. 
Mr. Coaker [holding answer 9 November 2009]: This is a matter for Ofsted. HM Chief Inspector, Christine Gilbert, has written to the hon. Member and a copy of her reply has been placed in the House Libraries.
Tim Loughton: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families pursuant to the answer of 9 February 2009, Official Report, columns 1730-1W, on special educational needs, how many pupils in each category were classified as gifted and talented. 
|Academies: Number of pupils in national curriculum year groups 10 and 11 who had a statement of special educational needs, had unstatemented special educational needs and are gifted and talented( 1,2) -position in January each year 2007 to 2009, England|
|Number of pupils who had a statement of special educational needs and who were gifted and talented||Number of pupils who had unstatemented special educational needs and who were gifted and talented|
|Number of schools||Year group 10||Year group 11||Year group 10||Year group 11|
|(1) Excludes dually registered pupils.|
(2 )Information on gifted and talented status is available from 2007.

Tim Loughton: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many letters his Department has written to head teachers on special educational needs in the last 12 months; and if he will place a copy of each such letter in the Library. 
Ms Diana R. Johnson: The Department has sent two letters to schools specifically about special educational needs (SEN) over the past year: The Exchequer Secretary wrote to schools on 22 January 2009 about improving outcomes for children with SEN and tackling bullying; and the Department wrote to schools in a letter dated 27 January 2009 about children with SEN from service families. These letters have been placed in the House Libraries.
In addition, SEN and disability featured in the Secretary of State's annual 'back to school' letter to head teachers in September 2008. This letter emphasised the priority he attaches to narrowing the attainment gap in outcomes for disadvantaged children, including those with SEN.
Tim Loughton: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families pursuant to the answer of 11 February 2009, Official Report, column 2117W, on special educational needs: pupil exclusions, how much of each category of expenditure detailed in the answer was incurred (a) in each local authority area and (b) in respect of each type of special educational need. 
Mr. Coaker: It is assumed that the question asked relates to categories of exclusion and not categories of expenditure. On this basis the breakdown by local authority area for the earliest and latest years available-2003/04 and 2007/08-has been placed in the Libraries. Data for other years could be provided only at disproportionate cost. The breakdown by type of special educational need can be found in the reply given on 24 March, Official Report, column 366W.
Tim Loughton: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families when he plans to answer question (a) 256860, (b) 258648 and (c) 260486 on special educational needs, tabled on 26 February, 20 February and 10 February 2009 respectively.

each Government office region from 2005 to 2007 inclusive are set out in the following table. DECC does not hold ONS accredited data on regional per capita emissions before 2005, and 2008 data is not yet available.
