The Government Education Village will provide visitors with an area to meet with representatives from the Department for Education and the Education & Skills Funding Agency. This is a unique platform to learn more about upcoming policy and developments within the sector, whilst having your questions answered.

Also, the Government Education Village will be hosting mini-demonstrations of projects currently being worked on in Central Government. This is an opportunity not to be missed, join the rest of the education community at the Schools & Academies Show by registering for your free place!

WHO YOU CAN MEET IN THE GOVERNMENT EDUCATION VILLAGE

GOOD ESTATE MANAGEMENT FOR SCHOOLS & CONDITION DATA COLLECTION

Come and find out more about the Condition Data Collection programme, one of the biggest data collection exercises in the UK public sector, where we are collecting building condition information across all government funded schools in England.

EDUCATE AGAINST HATE

Educate Against Hate is the Government programme providing teachers, school leaders and parents with practical advice, support and resources to help them build young people’s resilience to extremism and keep them safe from radicalisation. Come and talk to us about how your school implements the Prevent duty and embeds Fundamental British Values. Pick up free Educate Against Hate materials for your schools.

SCHOOL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT DATA & TRANSPARENCY TOOLS

Access to good quality, accurate and timely data helps schools to make informed decisions on managing resources efficiently. Come and speak to us about the Schools Financial Benchmarking Service and Integrated Curriculum and Financial Planning tools. We can provide hints and tips on how to use the tools and we are also interested in your feedback to continue to improve the services we offer.

SCHOOLS COMMERCIAL TEAM

The Schools Commercial Team within the Department for Education is leading on the Buying for Schools programme; delivering services to support schools to buy non-staff goods and services more efficiently and to make effective use of the resources available to them. We aim to reach the right people in schools to raise awareness of the cost saving, time saving and collaboration initiatives available and getting the best value from all their resources whilst ensuring compliant buying practices.

SCHOOL AND ACADEMY FUNDING

The ESFA funding directorate is responsible for calculating and allocating all school and academies funding. This includes delivering the move to the National Funding Formula, the post-16 funding agenda, apprenticeships and adult skills funding. The funding directorate is one of the largest funding operations in government, responsible for allocating around £58 billion of public money. We provide assurance those monies are properly spent, achieving value for money, and delivering the policies and priorities of the government. Come and speak to us to find out the latest information on funding for schools and academies.

T LEVELS

Come and learn about T Levels – the new technical education offer for young people after GCSEs. You can find out what these qualifications involve, how the rollout is progressing, how schools can get involved in delivering them and the support available.

ESFA DIGITAL CHANNELS

Do you use digital channels to get information from the Education and Skills Funding Agency? This is an opportunity for you to feedback on the digital channels you use and what you'd like to see more, or less of. Whether you use digital channels or not, come and speak to us as we are interested in your views.

STAFF WELLBEING

We are responsible for delivering DfE’s commitment to protect and promote the wellbeing of education staff. Working in partnership with stakeholders we aim to support schools to develop a whole school approach to wellbeing. We have published the first Education Staff Wellbeing Charter, a declaration of support for, and set of commitments to, the wellbeing and mental health of everyone working in education.

NATIONAL TUTORING PROGRAMME

The National Tutoring Programme (NTP) is an easy to access, cost-effective programme aiming to reach thousands more pupils this academic year, in one-to-one and small-group, 15-hour tuition courses. The objective of the NTP is to both address the impact of Covid–19 on educational outcomes for disadvantaged pupils and embed a culture of tutoring within schools as part of the longer-term solution to address the attainment gap. Phase two of the £1 billion National Tutoring Programme has launched to continue to provide subsidised, high-quality tuition to pupils across England who have lost learning due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

PREVENTING SERIOUS YOUTH VIOLENCE

Talk to the team to find out more about the role education plays in preventing serious youth violence. By working with different partners to invest in intervention in school, we can reduce truancy, challenging behaviour and boost the protection school offers. The Youth Endowment Fund’s toolkit is a great place for schools to learn more about what works best to reduce the threat of serious violence. DfE is delivering two programmes in serious violence hotspots: Alternative Provision Specialist Taskforces bring together specialist workforces full-time in AP and SAFE Taskforces, led by schools, will target intervention to keep young people engaged in their learning and prevent them from being drawn into serious violence.

The National Tutoring Programme

Building on the success of the National Tutoring Programme 2020 to 2021, we have listened to feedback and increased the breadth of the programme for 2021 to 2022. We recognise that each school has pupils with varying needs, so we have developed a tutoring proposition that provides a high degree of flexibility and choice.
We have developed options that make it easier for schools to access tutoring whilst ensuring that you can still exercise a high degree of discretion to support the pupils you believe are most in need. There are three options available that will help you as you start planning for the year ahead.
