England's children's commissioner says she will "go out and find" those not on school rolls. Ex-minister Robert Buckland urges the government to end detention in hospitals for long periods. Children born between 1 April and 1 July could start pre-school and school a year later. An app learns how much insulin a child needs so parents do not need to monitor children constantly. Six universities sign a ministerial pledge to stop using non-disclosure orders to silence complaints. Measures to tackle educational underachievement are also at risk if schools do not get more money. It's not just mental health professionals who have to spot self-harm, updated health guidance says. The Exeter University lecturer told a tribunal her "naturally loud" voice led to her dismissal. A leading charity says soaring energy costs could plunge more families into "very deep poverty".
