Education Bill [HL] (24 Feb 2005)

Lord Filkin: My Lords, we too want to make sure that all parents receive a copy of the school profile. The guidance accompanying the profile will make this clear to schools. The guidance will provide for all schools to give a hard copy of the profile to parents, except where parents have requested information electronically. I should make clear that the regulation-making power in Clause 101(2) is intended...

Education Bill [HL] (24 Feb 2005)

Lord Filkin: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Sharp, for her clarification of what lay behind the amendment. To some extent, I suspect that what I say initially will deal more with the context rather than the specifics of what she said. But no matter; if she will bear with me, I shall at least ensure that I set that context. Amendments Nos. 125 and 126 impact on the section of the Education Act...

Education Bill [HL] (24 Feb 2005)

Lord Filkin: My Lords, this has been an interesting debate. I shall initially make some points that should be on the record, and then I shall give a reflection. At the formal level the amendment is unnecessary because the powers already exist. There is a statutory basis for collecting information in this way. Some of the information is already published. The PRU census, which is published each year,...

Education Bill [HL] (24 Feb 2005)

Lord Filkin: My Lords, we seem to be having a sequence of rather thoughtful debates at this stage of the Bill, which is not quite what you expect. I do not mean that in any way other than seriously. I shall first of all describe where we are, and then respond more fully to the spirit of the debate, rather than just the literal aspects of the amendment. First, we think there is progress going on in the...

Education Bill [HL] (24 Feb 2005)

Lord Filkin: The purpose of this amendment is to recast one of the key provisions of Part 8 of the Education Act 2002. Broadly speaking, this provides powers to the Secretary of State and the National Assembly for Wales to set out in regulations what types of staff may carry out work in what types of schools and under what conditions. This is a basis, among other things, for the national agreement to...

Education Bill [HL] (24 Feb 2005)

Lord Filkin: My Lords, the prompt was well received, is the short answer. This could have been part of our more general discussion earlier, so I will not go on at excessive length. I agree with a lot of what the noble Baroness, Lady Sharp, has said and must make sure that I read it in Hansard as well. It is certain that the issues she talks about are in the work programme that we have got under way. In...

Education Bill [HL] (24 Feb 2005)

Lord Filkin: My Lords, I understand and agree with the interest in the detail of the regulations and the importance of getting them right. However, the noble Lord, Lord Hanningfield, will not be surprised to hear that I do not believe that the amendment is necessary or appropriate, although the fulfilment of his concerns is. I am told that on the Buckinghamshire/Bromley issue, the money was capital and I...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Advisory Council for the Education of Romany and other Travellers (22 Feb 2005)

Lord Filkin: Mr Cannon's letter dated 23 July was unfortunately mislaid within the department. A letter of apology and full response was sent on 29 January. There was a further delay in responding to Lord Avebury's letter of reminder of 29 December due to a backlog of invitations following the appointment of the new Secretary of State. A letter of apology was also sent to Lord Avebury on 29 January,...

Education Bill [HL] (21 Feb 2005)

Lord Filkin: My Lords, I beg to move that consideration on Report be now adjourned.

Education Bill [HL] (21 Feb 2005)

Lord Filkin: My Lords, I find it extremely unfair to have my flexibility on one part of the Bill prayed against me on another. But let us put that to one side. We made clear in the earlier debate our understanding of these concerns. We agree that turning a school round is very much a team effort and not only a matter for the local authority on its own. As a matter of practice the governing body and the...

Education Bill [HL] (21 Feb 2005)

Lord Filkin: My Lords, I was glad that the noble Baroness accepted that it was not right to have just one category. I thought that she had been ingenious in coming up with two categories of additional support. But that is probably as far as we shall meet on this. I shall not speak at length as it is one of those issues when our position is pretty clear and strong. We believe that we are right. As we said...

Education Bill [HL] (21 Feb 2005)

Lord Filkin: moved Amendments Nos. 36 and 37: Page 7, line 10, leave out "(2) and (3)" and insert "(1A) and (1B)" Page 7, line 11, leave out subsections (2) and (3) and insert— "(1A) The Chief Inspector must— (a) send a draft of the report of the inspection— (i) in the case of a maintained school, to the governing body, and (ii) in the case of any other school, to the proprietor of the school, and...

Education Bill [HL] (21 Feb 2005)

Lord Filkin: My Lords, the noble Baroness, Lady Sharp, did a better job than I could to signal the considerable number of different points at which the Government have moved to try to ensure that processes exist to enable schools which have been inspected to be a participant in the process of trying to ensure that they believe that the judgments and conclusions are fair, without allowing them to go as far...

Education Bill [HL] (21 Feb 2005)

Lord Filkin: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Hanningfield, and my noble friend Lady Massey of Darwen. I also thank the noble Baroness, Lady Walmsley, for inviting me to show how we have moved in this respect. We have listened. Amendment No. 32 is significant; it will ensure that when parents are notified of an inspection, they will also be informed about the arrangements Ofsted has made for them to...
