The extent of off-rolling in our schools.

A quarter of teachers have seen off-rolling in their schools, and most of these believe the practice is on the rise, new research commissioned by Ofsted has shown.

The YouGov survey also found that teachers who have experienced off-rolling, where a child is removed from the roll to benefit the school rather than the pupil, are more likely to work in academies.

Chief inspector Amanda Spielman warned that teachers were saying that some schools are “clearly pushing vulnerable pupils out through the back door”.

School break times cut - no time to play.

School break times have been getting shorter over the past two decades, as teachers try to pack more lessons into the day, a long-term study suggests.

Infants in England had 45 minutes less break time a week than in 1995, the University College London team found.

Secondary pupils had lost 65 minutes over the same period, they said.

The government said it had given schools the "autonomy" to make decisions about the structure and duration of their school day.

Pupils complained of fun activities being banned, not having enough time to eat their lunch, and missing their breaks due to others' poor behaviour.

Children and young people's social lives seem to have been curtailed as well, with fewer students than in 2006 reporting they had visited a friend's house after school, according to the research.

Schools refuse places for special needs children.

Julia Maunder, head of Thomas Keble secondary school, in the pretty hilltop village of Eastcombe, Gloucestershire, has worked hard to make the school inclusive. In the top 30% nationally for student progress and attainment, it has built up a reputation for its expertise with special educational needs (SEN). Local parents whose children need support to access mainstream education seek it out.

But Maunder has taken a step she could never have imagined: she has announced she will be cutting her intake of children with education, health and care plans (EHCPs, which replaced statements of special needs in 2014) from 35 children to between 25 and 22, over the next four years.

Computing in schools in decline.

An annual study by the University of Roehampton has found that fewer 16-year-olds in England are getting a computing qualification.

It also said schools have cut back on the hours spent teaching the subject.

In 2018, 130,000 students got a GCSE in either computer science or ICT (information and communications technology), down from 140,000 the previous year.

This year, the ICT exam is not an option.

The fall in exam passes follows the phasing out of the ICT GCSE from the national curriculum in England and its replacement by the more challenging computer science.

Early years qualifications essential.

Ensuring adults working in early-years settings have good qualifications and ongoing training is key to raising the quality of provision, a study suggests.

Researchers at Oxford University found well trained staff could make up for larger numbers of children to adults.

But they stress that this is not an argument to reduce the ratio of staff members to children, which should be "maintained at a favourable level".

They also suggest the quality of care in England has risen in recent years.

The Oxford researchers analysed data from 598 early childhood education and care (ECEC) settings across England - a mixture of private and voluntary providers, children's centres and nursery schools.

    

They collected information on the training, qualifications and staff-to-child ratios of early-years workers looking after three- and four-year-olds who were born between September 2010 and August 2013.
