Tim Loughton: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families pursuant to the answer of 15 October 2009, Official Report, column 1094W, on departmental public expenditure, which individual programmes and corresponding allocations for 2010-11 are aggregated under each of the entries listed in the tables. 
Ms Diana R. Johnson
[holding answer 26 October 2009]: The reply given on 15 October 2009, Official Report, column 1095W, was already a breakdown of allocation on programme line basis. This is the lowest
level of meaningful information we can provide and any further breakdown of these figures would be on departmental account code basis.
Mr. Oaten: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many helplines his Department operates; and how much his Department and its predecessor has received from the operation of such helplines in each of the last three years. 
Mr. Laws: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how much his Department plans to spend on one-to-one tuition in (a) 2009-10 and (b) 2010-11; and if he will make a statement. 
Ms Diana R. Johnson: A total of £468 million funding has been set aside for one-to-one tuition over the CSR period. The one-to-one tuition funding is ring-fenced to local authorities (LAs) as part of the standards fund grant.
In the spring and summer terms 2009 £15 million was provided for 36,000 tuition places in years five and six across all LAs. LAs reported that their schools delivered over 38,000 tuition places as part of this early roll out of the programme, with some LAs funding additional places from their own budgets.
For the academic year 2009/10, £138 million will support 3.5 per cent. of the key stage 2, and key stage 3 (and in National Challenge schools key stage 4) cohorts in each of English and mathematics. All LAs are now working with their primary and secondary schools towards delivering their full 2009/10 allocation of tuition places.
For 2010/11 funding rises to £315 million to support 300,000 pupils in English and 300,000 children in mathematics. Allocations and funding for tuition places in 2010/11 will be notified to LAs next month.
Paul Holmes: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what grants have been made by his Department to independent faith schools in each of the last five years; which schools received such grants; what the denomination was of each such school; and against what criteria determinations of such grants were made. 
Natascha Engel: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many family intervention projects there have been in (a) Derbyshire and (b) North East Derbyshire constituency. 
Chris Grayling: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how much funding from the public purse has been allocated to family intervention projects in each of the next three years. 
Dawn Primarolo: The Government allocated £35.5 million for family intervention projects in 2009-10 and are planning to allocate £57.1 million Government funding in 2010-11, an increase of 61 per cent. In addition there is anticipated match funding of £9.5 million from Registered Social Landlords, Housing Associations and Youth Offending Teams. Departmental budgets, and therefore the funding for Family Intervention Projects, have yet to be determined beyond March 2011. Decisions will be made following Spending Review discussions once the Department's settlement is agreed.
Mr. Gibb: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families with reference to the answer of 21 July 2008, Official Report, column 929W, on children: disadvantaged, how many and what proportion of (a) all pupils and (b) pupils eligible to receive free school meals did not attain a GCSE at a grade higher than a D in 2008. 
31,644 pupils eligible to receive free school meals did not attain a GCSE at a grade higher than a D in 2007/08. This represents 42.4 per cent. of eligible pupils at the end of key stage 4 in maintained schools.
Other equivalent qualifications to GCSEs are not included in this answer. Only full GCSEs (including double awards) have been considered.
Mr. Laws: 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|
|FSM pupils||Non-FSM pupils|
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 eligible for free school meals did not obtain a C grade or above in (a) any GCSE, (b) mathematics GCSE and (c) English GCSE in 2009. 
Joan Ryan: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many children at schools in Enfield North constituency obtained five or more GCSEs at grades A* to C or equivalent in each year since 1997. 
Mr. Coaker: The information requested is given in the table. Data for 2009 are not provided because the Department does not publish results below local authority level until it has been checked by schools. This data will be available after the publication of the Achievement and Attainment Tables in mid January.

(2) Figures for 2005/06 onwards are based on pupils at the end of Key Stage 4. Data for previous years are based on pupils aged 15 years old at the start of the academic year.
John Battle: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what percentage of pupils in Leeds West constituency have participated in gifted and talented programmes in the last academic year. 
Ms Diana R. Johnson: The Department does not collect data on which pupils in schools are on gifted and talented programmes. Through the school census, schools are asked to confirm the number of gifted and talented pupils they have identified. According to the January 2009 census, 663 (9.8 per cent.) of pupils in maintained primary schools and 372 (10.1 per cent.) of pupils in maintained secondary schools were identified as gifted and talented in the Leeds West constituency.
Mr. Gibb: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many executive heads and executive directors of secondary schools there are in England; and what the salary range is. 
Mr. Coaker: The term 'executive head' is used to describe a variety of roles, including head teachers who are responsible and accountable for more than one school, either as a temporary or permanent arrangement, instead of there being a head teacher for each individual school; or head teachers who are responsible and accountable for the day-to-day management of their own schools but in addition provide a service to another school.
The term "executive director" is also used to describe a number of different roles such as an individual who is appointed across a number of schools, each of which has its own head teacher and governing body responsible and accountable for the day-to-day management of that school.
Following the School Teacher's Review Body's (STRB) recommendation that the Department should investigate and clarify the role and status of the various models of "executive head", research has been commissioned to define and evaluate these models. The results of the research will feed into a future remit to the STRB which will focus on long term leadership pay arrangements that take full account of the emerging models of school leadership.
Interim changes were introduced into the STPCD from September 2009 to reflect emerging leadership models, including recognition for heads who become responsible for running more than one school either on a permanent or temporary basis. The provisions in the STPCD provide for employers to determine a salary for heads who take on responsibility for running more than one school that is above the top of the leadership pay spine (£109,658 in Inner London and £102,734 elsewhere). It is a matter for individual employers to determine the appropriate salary that takes account of the nature and challenge of the responsibilities associated with running more than one school.
Mr. Gibb: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families at how many and what proportion of maintained mainstream schools which offered modern language GCSEs no pupil received a GCSE in a modern language at grades A* to C in (a) 2005, (b) 2006 and (c) 2007. 
|Mainstream maintained schools in which no pupil at the end of key stage 4 achieved a grade C or above in a modern foreign language GCSE|
|Schools with more than 10 pupils attempting a modern foreign language GCSE||Schools with 1-10 pupils attempting a modern foreign language GCSE||Number||Percentage|
