Children’s Care Homes: Reform - Question (20 Nov 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, in understanding that certain of these firms that are running children’s homes are making an excessive profit, would it not be a good idea if we addressed one of the accepted problems with the childcare system: the transition to adult life? If services were required to give active support to these individuals, we might have fewer problems carrying on, and we would make sure that...

Schools: Special Educational Needs - Question (15 Nov 2023)

Lord Addington: To ask His Majesty’s Government when they expect every school to have the capacity to internally identify commonly occurring special educational needs.

Schools: Special Educational Needs - Question (15 Nov 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper and remind the House of my declared interests.

Schools: Special Educational Needs - Question (15 Nov 2023)

Lord Addington: I thank the Minster for that reply. How does she square that with the fact that, according to an LSE survey, in lower socioeconomic groups more people are identified as having problems, but far fewer are identified correctly with those needs than are identified in more affluent areas? If you have other conditions such as dyslexia, it is not about doing more work, but working smarter. The way...

King’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (14 Nov 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, the first thing that I must do is congratulate the two maiden speakers. The right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Newcastle— I do not know how many times I have invented my own title for Bishops in this House—gave the sort of speech you would expect of somebody who could work a pulpit and a crowd every time. The noble Baroness, Lady Owen, reminded me exactly how old I was by...

Schools: Catering Facilities and RAAC - Question (23 Oct 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, things such as good catering and sports facilities are reckoned to help academic attainment, so will the fact that those facilities in these schools have been badly damaged be reflected in their status in league tables, for example?

Core School Budget Allocations - Commons Urgent Question (17 Oct 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, can the Minister give us some idea of where the lack of spending, shall we say, is affecting the structure of a school? I remind the House once again of my interests in special educational needs. Is it in the capacity to identify those with hidden disabilities? Some 80% of the population who are dyslexic are not identified at school, or throughout their lives. Are we going to find...

Core School Budget Allocations - Commons Urgent Question (17 Oct 2023)

Lord Addington: Given that we still have time, following that answer, could the Minister give me an idea of what will not be cut? When will the planning be honoured? If we know that, we will have an idea of what is vulnerable.

Education: Advanced British Standard - Question (17 Oct 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, I remind the House of my declared interests. Those with special educational needs, particularly dyslexia and dyscalculia, will clearly be put under a lot more pressure by this approach. When will the Government publish a plan to make sure that these people are not excluded from reaching an A-level standard or put under extra pressure? When can we relate it to the rest of the...

Schools: Music, Art, Craft and Dance - Question (16 Oct 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords—

Schools: Music, Art, Craft and Dance - Question (16 Oct 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, can the Minister give us an idea of what the Government are doing to encourage people to take up the subjects here part-time or as hobbies, due to the huge benefit you gain from being involved in things like community activity in dance and drama? Where is this being done, how are those hubs being created, and are we sure we have people who know enough to make these things fun for...

Paediatric Care: Wating Times - Question (16 Oct 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, following on from his last comment, can the Minister give us some idea of what contact there has been on this with the Department for Education? We are supposed to talk to each other, but it becomes increasingly apparent that we do not do so.

Schools: RAAC - Commons Urgent Question (19 Sep 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, can the Minister enlighten us as to whether the Government have looked at whether specialist classrooms have been taken out as a result of this, and what effect that will have on the curriculum? For instance, science labs would be an obvious example. Also, in the creative subjects, if you have lost a theatre or an arts room where you were doing ceramics, you cannot complete the...

T-levels - Question (25 Jul 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, the Minister talked about the problems with these courses. There are virtually no problems that were not predicted. Could the Minister tell us what we are doing about careers advice for the young people taking these qualifications? Where there are courses which have failed—if everybody fails on the second year, as is pointed out in the report, they have failed—will the careers...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Defibrillators (25 Jul 2023)

Lord Addington: To ask His Majesty's Government what plans, if any, they have to standardise the colour of defibrillation units to allow easier identification by the general public, and when they plan to communicate any such plans to the general public.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Defibrillators (25 Jul 2023)

Lord Addington: To ask His Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the public’s knowledge of the availability defibrillation units and where these units can be found.

Schools: Absenteeism - Question (20 Jul 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, can the Minister give us some guidance on what progress has been made in making sure that mainstream schools are identifying reasons why children are failing? Often this is because of neurodiversity and special educational needs. What are we doing to improve the awareness of these? I remind the House of my interest in this area.

Health: Cardiac Arrest - Question (17 Jul 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, would it be a good idea, if we are dealing with things which have to be used by the general public, for us to have a universal signing system to tell you where you can find something? For instance, something red or yellow could flash in public to say where a defibrillator is—because I managed to walk past one in my office without noticing it for a couple of years.

Unregistered Schools - Question ( 5 Jul 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, will the Minister take this opportunity to take back to the Government the fact that we did not object to the part of the Bill that had this capacity in it? We did not like the first bit but we did like the second, and the Government dumped it all. Can she take back that we will probably help as much as we can to get that legislation on the statute book as soon as we can?
