Teacher Training: Dyslexia and Autism - Question (22 Jun 2023)

Lord Addington: To ask His Majesty’s Government what level of support is required for a teacher trained under the existing initial teacher training regime to support and educate any person attending a mainstream school with a diagnosis of dyslexia or autism.

Teacher Training: Dyslexia and Autism - Question (22 Jun 2023)

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

Teacher Training: Dyslexia and Autism - Question (22 Jun 2023)

Lord Addington: I thank the Minister for that reply, but most such children are still identified on the initiative of their parents, not the school. Does that suggest that there is a lack of knowledge of these conditions and of other special educational needs in the teaching profession, particularly as we are losing qualified teachers at an alarming rate? Will the Minister consider making it a mandatory...

School Buildings: Safety - Question (20 Jun 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, will the Minister give us an assurance that any new school is constructed with a material that we expect to have to pull down and will not fall down before we get there?

Lifelong Learning (Higher Education Fee Limits) Bill - Second Reading (19 Jun 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, when you have listened to a whole debate in which various things have been covered again and again, it becomes ridiculous to mention them anything other than briefly. The main point has been that the mechanics of this Bill are largely welcomed. We agree that there is potential for this credit-based system and for lifelong learning. However, I think it was the noble Lord, Lord...

Public Advocate Bill [HL] - Second Reading (16 Jun 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, as the noble Lord just said, this Bill has been a long time coming. It is coming because of a felt public need that the general public did not get justice, having been confronted by what turned out to be at least some elements of cover-up and, to be perfectly honest, behind-covering by the establishment. The cover-up, as the noble Lord just mentioned, involved the use of...

Arts and Creative Industries: Freelancers and Self-employed Workers - Question for Short Debate (15 Jun 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, when you find yourself in a debate with only two minutes to speak, the only thing you can do is dive straight in. The one thing I would say here is, when it comes to training and supporting people in these structures, on-the-job training is not going to work if you have a varied employment structure that moves around the country. Whenever we have devised something of late, we have...

NHS: Performance and Innovation - Motion to Take Note (15 Jun 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, this is one of those debates where we all think we know what is going to be said, but hopefully we are all mildly surprised. My noble friend started this process by hitting the nail straight on the head, saying—I paraphrase, but I formed this impression—that we are dealing with everybody after they have fallen over, not making sure there is not something to slip on. We have a...

Football Matches: Violence - Question (14 Jun 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, will the Minister agree that one of the ways of solving this is to make sure that the culture within the fan groups accepts that there will be consequences to attacking or going over the fence? Will the Government encourage football to make sure that, if fans behave like this, there will be a penalty for their club and the individuals, to encourage those around them to restrain them...

Water Safety (Curriculum) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (19 May 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, this is one of those debates in which you agree with everybody who has spoken. Usually, there are patches and caveats, but I do not think there are any today. The fact is that safety around water is essential. The first building block is probably learning to swim, and you must have somewhere you can learn to swim. The reason we do it in swimming pools is that they are warm, safe and...

Autism: Diagnosis Targets - Question (16 May 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, would the Minister agree that when you delay an assessment, you delay support from the entire structure of government, which we have said should be helping? What help is his department getting from the Department for Education and the Department for Work and Pensions to ensure people are getting to these assessments? If they cannot get the full assessment, can some intermediate...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Special Educational Needs ( 4 May 2023)

Lord Addington: To ask His Majesty's Government, further to their Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and Alternative Provision (AP) Improvement Plan (CP 800) which states that most pupils going into AP have a special educational need, what structure they expect to put in place for identifying what specific special educational needs individuals pupils have; and in what timeframe.
