Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Childcare (15 Jun 2015)

Carol Monaghan: I welcome the Minister to his place, and I welcome the UK Government’s decision to follow the Scottish Government’s lead in expanding free childcare to 30 hours for three and four-year-olds. How much additional funding will be made available for the planned childcare expansion?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Childcare (15 Jun 2015)

Carol Monaghan: I thank the Minister for that answer. Will he give the figure for how much additional funding will come to Scotland as a result of the Barnett consequentials from the planned expansion of childcare in England?

Education and Adoption Bill (22 Jun 2015)

Carol Monaghan: I am delighted to have the support of so many of my colleagues here today as I make this, my first speech to the House. I am honoured to be here representing Glasgow North West, the area where I grew up and where I have chosen to raise my own children. Glasgow North West does not have the lochs and islands of Argyll and Bute, or the mountains of Skye and Lochaber, but what it does have is...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — English as an additional language (Pupil Support) (23 Jun 2015)

Carol Monaghan: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I will talk a bit about my experience of pupils with EAL needs in my previous job as a teacher. Scotland has a long and rich history of multilingualism. Throughout the ages, we have had various languages running through our culture—Scots, Gaelic, Irish and English.

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — English as an additional language (Pupil Support) (23 Jun 2015)

Carol Monaghan: I thank the hon. Gentleman; I will add Welsh to that list. Over the past 20 years, we have seen an influx of people with different languages and cultures. EAL pupils have had a huge, positive impact on our schools in Glasgow. I taught in an inner-city comprehensive in Glasgow where asylum seekers and refugees were housed in the late ’90s. We had a huge number of EAL pupils, and attainment...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — English as an additional language (Pupil Support) (23 Jun 2015)

Carol Monaghan: In areas such as the Western Isles, Gaelic is still the native tongue for many people—the figure is far more than 5%, so my hon. Friend the Member for Na h-Eileanan an Iar (Mr MacNeil) would probably disagree with the hon. Gentleman. On the number of pupils coming in with English as an additional language, I am not sure that any area in Scotland has a figure of 70%, but we do have figures...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — English as an additional language (Pupil Support) (23 Jun 2015)

Carol Monaghan: Taking languages at GCSE is a matter for pupils at that point in their school careers. The baccalaureate system is really robust, with pupils looking at different areas and having specialisms in different subjects, and that is really positive. However, the issue is more about language learning in the early years. There will be huge benefits if we can deal with that, whatever the additional...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — English as an additional language (Pupil Support) (23 Jun 2015)

Carol Monaghan: Actually, I was there. It was my hon. Friend the Member for Kilmarnock and Loudoun (Alan Brown) who was not. I enjoyed the hon. Gentleman’s winding-up speech.

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — English as an additional language (Pupil Support) (23 Jun 2015)

Carol Monaghan: The hon. Gentleman says that the presence of a high proportion of EAL pupils does not have a negative impact on other pupils, but my experience is that it has an extremely positive impact on other pupils. In fact, the presence of such pupils in their class gives other students something to aim for because they can see a different way of working, which is a huge advantage.

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — English as an additional language (Pupil Support) (23 Jun 2015)

Carol Monaghan: In Scotland, we do not have academies, although some schools might have the word “academy” in their title; we have comprehensive schools and private schools. Does the Minister agree that a school’s success is not down to its name but is the result of leadership within the school and the systems put in place to ensure that staff and pupils are supported fully?

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — English as an additional language (Pupil Support) (23 Jun 2015)

Carol Monaghan: The Minister mentioned some staff members: a head teacher and some inspiring teachers. Is the Minister suggesting that if the school had not been an academy, it would not have had the same success, given the staff that it has in position?
