Oral Answers to Questions — Education: School Budgets (25 Jun 2018)

Angela Rayner: The Chancellor gave a guarantee that not a single school would lose a single penny—no ifs, no buts, no small print, but an ironclad, copper-bottomed guarantee. Now he is trying to wriggle out of it like a second-hand car salesman. If Private Pike is prepared to go to war to get funding for defence, why is the Education Secretary waving the white flag rather than meeting his guarantee...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (25 Jun 2018)

Angela Rayner: Just weeks ago, Ministers stood at the Dispatch Box, rejected our call to save the NHS bursary and promised that 5,000 apprentice nursing associates would be recruited this year to tackle the nursing shortage. Half were due to be recruited by April. Can the Minister confirm that Ministers have now missed that target by 60% and tell us how many people will start apprenticeships this year?

Tributes: Baroness Jowell: Schools That Work For Everyone (14 May 2018)

Angela Rayner: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for Education if he will make a statement on the Government’s response to the Schools That Work For Everyone consultation.

Tributes: Baroness Jowell: Schools That Work For Everyone (14 May 2018)

Angela Rayner: I thank you, Mr Speaker, for granting this urgent question. May I start by asking the Secretary of State whether he agrees with himself? In the last Parliament, he thought grammar schools—I notice he uses the term “selective schools” now—were “not the answer” to social mobility, and he said he would not want one in his own town, as it would be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Apprenticeship Starts (14 May 2018)

Angela Rayner: May I echo the Secretary of State’s words regarding our friend, the late Dame Tessa Jowell? I think in particular of her role in the founding of Sure Start centres, not just as the shadow Secretary of State for Education but because when I was a young mum it was the local Sure Start centre that really helped me and my son. For all that is said and done in this Chamber, that is the best...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Sixth-Form Colleges: Funding (14 May 2018)

Angela Rayner: My local side Ashton United, who do a lot with local schools, were promoted recently. Funding for 16 to 19-year-olds has been frozen or cut every year since the formula was set in 2013. Will the Minister confirm that the real-terms cut to the base rate for 18-year-olds will be more than £1,000 per pupil by 2020? The Secretary of State can find £50 million a year for grammar...

Deferred Divisions: Education (Student Support) (9 May 2018)

Angela Rayner: I beg to move, That an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty, praying that the Education (Student Support) (Amendment) (No. 2) Regulations 2018 (S.I., 2018, No. 443), dated 28 March 2018, a copy of which was laid before this House on 28 March, be annulled. I thank the Leader of the House for scheduling this debate, which marks an important moment. In this Parliament, Members have had...

Deferred Divisions: Education (Student Support) (9 May 2018)

Angela Rayner: I agree with the hon. Lady that we need to ensure that we have not only more applicants, but more people in training. However, 700 fewer students have been training to be nurses since 2017.

Deferred Divisions: Education (Student Support) (9 May 2018)

Angela Rayner: Forced debt for students and nurses of whatever gender is a really important issue, which I will come on to. My hon. Friend is absolutely right to highlight that we need to encourage both genders to see nursing as a legitimate career. I mentioned that there are 700 fewer students training to be nurses. That is the first fall in close to a decade.

Deferred Divisions: Education (Student Support) (9 May 2018)

Angela Rayner: My hon. Friend is absolutely right and I congratulate her on her outstanding dedication to nursing. The Government said that they can fill the gap with nursing apprentices. They promised 1,000 of them, yet it has now been revealed that just 30 apprentice nurses have started the course. To miss a target may be unfortunate, but to miss it by 97% and carry on regardless just seems reckless. The...

Deferred Divisions: Education (Student Support) (9 May 2018)

Angela Rayner: I respect the hon. Lady and I pay tribute to her for her work in the NHS as a nurse, but the figures show that not only is this change making it difficult for trainee nurses, who do an excellent job on our wards, it is contrary to what we need. Applications fell by 33%, with a 42% drop in mature students. In contrast, an undergraduate nursing course can take three years and postgraduate...

Deferred Divisions: Education (Student Support) (9 May 2018)

Angela Rayner: I absolutely agree with the hon. Lady. She is absolutely right to point out that all our focus has to be on making sure that the jewel in Britain’s crown—the national health service—has the qualified staff to do the job and keep our patients and loved ones safe. I have talked about the failure to fill the vacancies in the NHS at the moment, and that is even before we...

Deferred Divisions: Education (Student Support) (9 May 2018)

Angela Rayner: I absolutely agree that we have to make sure that we target interventions and make sure that they work, but part of the reason I have brought the motion before the House today is that the interventions are simply not working. Since 2017, we have 700 fewer students training to be nurses, so the impact is absolutely clear, and I hope that Government Members will support our motion. Some...

Deferred Divisions: Education (Student Support) (9 May 2018)

Angela Rayner: I am not sure it is my words that are putting people off; I would say the thought of having £50,000 of debt hanging over them for a very long time is putting people off going into education.

Deferred Divisions: Education (Student Support) (9 May 2018)

Angela Rayner: The passion from my hon. Friend reflects how people feel up and down the country. It is funny because we all know what happened at the general election—and the verdict was clear on the Government’s position on education and student debt and tuition. [Hon. Members: “You lost!”] And of course the Government lost their majority at the same time, and the weak and wobbly...

Deferred Divisions: Education (Student Support) (9 May 2018)

Angela Rayner: I should have thought that Conservative Members would have read what was a great manifesto. They have hidden theirs now—I cannot see it, because it is hard to find—but ours was absolutely clear, and we continue to be clear about the fact that we would abolish tuition fees. The debt that our students face at the moment is the result of a tripling of student debt on the...

School Funding (25 Apr 2018)

Angela Rayner: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. I wonder if you can help me with something. Earlier today, the Prime Minister said that the Leader of the Opposition had said that he would ameliorate student debt and suggested that he was no longer looking at that. That is not something that the Leader of the Opposition is not doing. Is there anything you can do, Madam Deputy Speaker, to help me...

School Funding (25 Apr 2018)

Angela Rayner: Will the hon. Lady take the opportunity to correct the record? We said in our manifesto that we would abolish tuition fees, and we continue to say that we would abolish tuition fees.

School Funding (25 Apr 2018)

Angela Rayner: I beg to move, That this House notes the Conservative Party manifesto pledge to make sure that no school has its budget cut as a result of the new national funding formula, the statement by the Secretary of State for Education that each school will see at least a small cash terms increase and the Chancellor of the Exchequer’s guarantee that every school would receive a cash terms...

School Funding (25 Apr 2018)

Angela Rayner: I absolutely agree. That is one of the travesties of this issue. Many parents up and down the country are angry and upset, particularly parents of children with high needs and special educational needs. They feel let down by this Government and their broken promises. When the Institute for Fiscal Studies heard what the Secretary of State said about a cash-terms increase, it responded:...
