To ask the Secretary of State for Education, with reference to the post on his Department's education in the media blog, entitled Supporting teachers for the upcoming year, dated 30 August 2019, for what reason were representatives of trades unions representing school support staff not invited to attend the meeting with education trade unions on 29 August 2019; and what plans he has to meet those trades unions.

The meeting on 29 August 2019 between my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for Education and unions representing teachers and school leaders was an opportunity to discuss issues particularly relevant to those members of the school workforce, including how we can recruit and retain the best and most experienced teachers. The Department for Education regularly engages with unions representing school support staff and that engagement will continue.
