My hon. Friend will be aware that we asked Sir Keith Ajegbo to carry out a review of citizenship education, and we are implementing the outcome of that review to improve the standard of citizenship teaching and learning.

I visited excellent examples of that in Bradford, at Guru Nanak secondary school in west London, and when I went back to my very first primary school, Brooklands primary school in Greenwich.
