Business of the House (27 Jan 2022)

Caroline Ansell: In recent years, clinical services have been reconfigured across my hospital trust, from Eastbourne and Bexhill to Hastings, but one in four households in Eastbourne do not have a car and public transport options are poor. There is no direct bus service; the journey can mean two buses and take two hours, and funding—financial support for some—is very narrowly defined. I have secured a...

The hon. Member for South West Bedfordshire, representing the Church Commissioners, was asked: Christians: Middle East (27 Jan 2022)

Caroline Ansell: What recent assessment the Church of England has made of the level of threats to Christians in the Middle East.

The hon. Member for South West Bedfordshire, representing the Church Commissioners, was asked: Christians: Middle East (27 Jan 2022)

Caroline Ansell: I thank my hon. Friend for his answer. As the newly elected chair of the all-party parliamentary group on Christianity in the Holy Land, I am grateful for the attention of Members of this House, the media and faith leaders across the world on the challenges that Christians face in the Holy Land and in the middle east more widely, as he expressed. I welcome the public assurances from President...

Cop26: Topical Questions (19 Jan 2022)

Caroline Ansell: Will COP26’s Clydebank declaration for green shipping corridors set the course for more zero emission shipping routes? That is particularly significant for air quality for my constituents in Eastbourne and Willingdon, who live alongside the busiest shipping lane in the world.

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (18 Jan 2022)

Caroline Ansell: My hospital trust is looking to redesign ophthalmology and cardiology services across its two hospitals, Eastbourne District General Hospital and Conquest Hospital in Hastings. The trust puts forward an important clinical case for the change, but given the realities—the road, the distance and the public transport options, which mean that it can be a journey of two hours via two buses for...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Joint Replacements: Coronavirus (23 Dec 2021)

Caroline Ansell: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what estimate he has made of the backlog on joint replacement surgery resulting from the covid-19 outbreak; and if he will make a statement.

Natural History GCSE (1 Dec 2021)

Caroline Ansell: I thank my hon. Friend the Minister for doing justice to all the very good work that is already being done in schools. He highlighted that there is further work to do to enhance the curriculum as it stands, and that the Department and he are still considering the opportunity to enhance the curriculum by offering this new choice at key stage 4. During the debate, natural history has variously...

Natural History GCSE (1 Dec 2021)

Caroline Ansell: The Minister does full justice to all the important content that is already within the curriculum that touches on natural history. Speaking of geography, is it an issue that this does not sit within that key stage 4 core? Does that mean that students are necessarily missing out on some important insight and understanding?

Natural History GCSE (1 Dec 2021)

Caroline Ansell: I thought I was being bold in proposing the introduction of one GCSE, but my hon. Friend has taken that proposal and raised me a revolution. I am sure that teachers everywhere will admire the breadth of her ambition. I think that where she and I agree is that this would include a component or a topic dealing with natural history. Does she therefore agree that this needs to be given a greater...

Natural History GCSE (1 Dec 2021)

Caroline Ansell: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Natural History GCSE (1 Dec 2021)

Caroline Ansell: I thank my hon. Friend, who raises some valid concerns that need to be addressed and, indeed, have been addressed in other places. One thing that I seek to understand more is the important idea of environmental literacy that she describes. Throughout the curriculum, there is much emphasis on language and communication as well as mathematics and numeracy. She describes early experiences...

Natural History GCSE (1 Dec 2021)

Caroline Ansell: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Natural History GCSE (1 Dec 2021)

Caroline Ansell: Indeed—a French teacher. One of the most exciting and potentially dynamic elements of the new GCSE is that it goes beyond a purely scientific approach where it might rest on biology or even geography and extends to our understanding of the natural world as manifested in art, music and literature. There is a rich inheritance therein inspired by our natural world. The new GCSE does everything...

Natural History GCSE (1 Dec 2021)

Caroline Ansell: I have one final point. Learning is powerful and threaded, as my hon. Friend describes, through the curriculum. Indeed, that is how students first acquired the skills necessary to understand information technology: it was delivered via other subjects. However, we came to recognise that IT has its own standing and should have its own status and qualification. A student can go further, deeper...

Natural History GCSE (1 Dec 2021)

Caroline Ansell: I beg to move, That this House has considered the matter of introducing a Natural History GCSE. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies. Young people today are caught up in an unhappy paradox. While their concern for the natural world is greater than ever before, their access to nature, to discover its magic and to marvel at its wonder, is much reduced. Earlier this year,...

Natural History GCSE (1 Dec 2021)

Caroline Ansell: I thank my hon. Friend for that most timely intervention. The forest school movement is to be greatly encouraged. It has inspired a raft of initiatives across the country, including in my constituency. It brings children into that natural environment, where learning is almost by osmosis; it is so natural and incidental. In that environment, children develop a great love of nature, which is...

Natural History GCSE (1 Dec 2021)

Caroline Ansell: I concur with all that the hon. Gentleman said. That love of nature that we want to inspire in the youngest children needs to find progression and continuity in every age and all the key stages of the curriculum. Ultimately, that will provide them with skills and insight for a future where, as we look to build the green economy, we need to build a green workforce, too. I welcome the hon....

Natural History GCSE (1 Dec 2021)

Caroline Ansell: I thank the hon. Lady for her intervention; she is my near neighbour along the coast. I had the great pleasure and privilege to speak to Mary this week ahead of today’s debate. I am a huge admirer of her work and her passion to see the next generation equipped and empowered for the future that faces them, in terms of both protecting our natural environment and having a great love for that...

Natural History GCSE (1 Dec 2021)

Caroline Ansell: I thank the hon. Gentleman, whose point was well made. This is not an “instead of” qualification; it is potentially an “alongside” or an “as well as”. It complements study across several different disciplines, not least opening up employment prospects, as he described. I go back to that inherent truth that one cannot protect what one does not love. We need to connect with that...

Natural History GCSE (1 Dec 2021)

Caroline Ansell: My hon. Friend is right to highlight one of the challenges around curriculum choices. Of course, with every choice there is an opportunity cost. However, this additional, optional GCSE would complement any choices, be they arts or science choices. The curriculum is designed to provide a broad and balanced education in the core, so there would be no learning loss—the science component is...
