Relationship Education in Schools (16 Jul 2019)

Nick Gibb: .... So this is a very important piece of legislation—a very important piece of statutory guidance. We should all be doing more to support and welcome it, as the hon. Member for Ashton-under-Lyne (Angela Rayner), who speaks for the Opposition, did in her response to this urgent question.

School Funding (25 Apr 2018)

Nick Gibb: ...that he did not acknowledge the 2.3% increase in funding for schools in his constituency once the national funding formula is fully implemented. Nor did the hon. Member for Ashton-under-Lyne (Angela Rayner) acknowledge the 3.5% increase in funding for schools in her constituency. No local authority is facing cuts in funding under this Government. Since 2010, this Government have been...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Ofsted: Staff (30 Oct 2017)

School Funding (25 Jan 2017)

Nick Gibb: ...of the House, at a time when the Government are consulting on the details and weightings of the factors that will make up the new national funding formula. The hon.

Today, she is reverting to the approach of her...

School Penalty Fines and Authorised Absence — [Mr David Hanson in the Chair] (11 Jul 2016)

Nick Gibb: It is a pleasure to serve once again under your chairmanship, Mr Hanson. I welcome the response to the debate from the hon. Member for Ashton-under-Lyne (Angela Rayner). I predicted that she would make a formidable shadow Secretary of State, despite the odd circumstances of her appointment, and today she has reconfirmed my view. I welcome her support for the Government’s policy,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Academies: Teacher Pay (4 Jul 2016)

Nick Gibb: May I first welcome the hon. Member for Ashton-under-Lyne (Angela Rayner) and congratulate her on her appointment as shadow Secretary of State? She follows in the footsteps of the long-serving hon. Member for North West Durham (Pat Glass), and I suspect she was more surprised than I was by her appointment. Having worked with her in seeking to raise standards in Oldham schools, I know how...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Academies: Parent Involvement (4 Jul 2016)

Nick Gibb: moving at pace—there were 200 academy conversions last month—and sponsored academies are improving faster under this arrangement. I hope that the hon. Member for Ashton-under-Lyne (Angela Rayner) will support a programme that began under the Labour party, although it began under a new Labour Government, not this old Labour Opposition.
