Covid-19 Pandemic: Educational Attainment - Question (22 Mai 2024)

Baroness Twycross: To ask His Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the attainment of children in schools, and what measures they are taking to address any adverse impacts.

Covid-19 Pandemic: Educational Attainment - Question (22 Mai 2024)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, studies have consistently shown that Covid-related disruption in schools negatively impacted the attainment of all pupils, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds. In August last year, Teach First’s polling showed that young people from the poorest backgrounds are twice as likely to feel pessimistic about their future career opportunities compared to the most affluent 16...

Relationships, Sex and Health Education: Statutory Guidance - Statement (16 Mai 2024)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, I thank the Minister for repeating the Statement made this morning by the Secretary of State for Education. There is much in it that is welcome. Teachers and school leaders have long pushed for clearer guidance on RSHE to be published, particularly in relation to gender identity. A child’s education should and must equip them for the world in which they live. It should stand them...

Faith Schools: Impact of Removing Admissions Cap - Question ( 7 Mai 2024)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, the rationale behind the proposed change to the state-funded faith schools admissions cap by the Government is in large part, as the noble Baroness has said, to increase the number of school places available. Has the department made any estimate of how many more places will be made available and when? What will the Government do to ensure that school places are established where...

Childcare Entitlements - Statement (24 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, I welcome the opportunity for us to discuss the Statement made yesterday in the other place. I thank the Minister for repeating it today in your Lordships’ House. Noble Lords present are probably united in thinking that the Government’s aspiration in expanding free childcare is welcome. However, unfortunately, it appears that currently only the Government believe that their...

Expansion of Free Childcare - Question (23 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Twycross: To ask His Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the implementation of the expansion of free childcare hours.

Expansion of Free Childcare - Question (23 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, the DfE’s own pulse survey from last week found that 45% of childcare and early years providers said that it was unlikely that they would increase the number of places they offer to under-threes as a result of the Government’s childcare expansion. The maths does not add up for providers and there is patchy provision across the country, with the sector still losing staff. Despite...

Children and Young People: Local Authority Care - Motion to Take Note (18 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Laming, for securing such an important debate and for his insight based on a huge amount of experience and expertise in this subject. As the noble Lord, Lord Young, said, there is no person better placed to lead this debate. As my noble friend Lord Wood said, this debate is timely because, regrettably, it is always timely. I recently had the privilege...

Schools and Colleges: Special Educational Needs - Question (15 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, pupils with special educational needs are more than four times more likely to develop a mental health problem than other people. This means that one in seven young people with a mental health difficulty will also have another special educational need. Given the huge and increasing backlog for mental health support in schools, will the Minister tell us whether the Government will...

Building Safety - Statement (27 Maw 2024)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, I declare an interest as deputy mayor for fire in London. With respect to the Minister, using such terms as “at pace” and “as soon as possible” when things are taking so long after the Grenfell Tower fire seems a little tardy to some of us in this House. Building safety in London and across the country is still a fundamental issue. There is still shoddy practice and that is...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Second Reading (27 Maw 2024)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, I declare an interest as deputy mayor for fire and resilience in London, and I thank the noble Lord, Lord Young, for his kind words about the London Fire Brigade. My deputy mayoral role does not cover residential housing directly, but I am acutely aware of the emotional and financial costs faced by leaseholders. In particular, the issues in relation to remediation following the...

Student Loan Interest Rates - Question (27 Maw 2024)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, the Student Money Survey last September found that 18% of students had used a food bank in the 2022-23 academic year, up from 10% in 2021-22. The annual inflation rate peaked at 9.6% in the year to October 2022, yet for the 2022-23 academic year, the value of student maintenance loans for living costs rose by only 2.3%. What are the Government doing to ensure that students can focus...

Artificial Intelligence (Regulation) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (22 Maw 2024)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, like others, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Holmes of Richmond, on his Private Member’s Bill, the Artificial Intelligence (Regulation) Bill. It has been a fascinating debate and one that is pivotal to our future. My noble friend Lord Leong apologises for his absence and I am grateful to the Government Benches for allowing me, in the absence of an AI-generated hologram of my...

School Meals for Children - Question (20 Maw 2024)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, anyone who saw the pictures in the newspaper article to which the Question refers will be fairly appalled at the quality of the food offered to the children. The head teacher concerned asked how hard it was to bake a potato. Is the real problem that children do not learn how to cook any more and therefore do not see jobs in institutional catering as a viable career? What action is...

Free Childcare Scheme - Question (20 Maw 2024)

Baroness Twycross: To ask His Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the availability of additional funded childcare provision, ahead of the expansion of the free childcare scheme in April.

Free Childcare Scheme - Question (20 Maw 2024)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, on these Benches we agree with the ambition of the policy, but delivery of the expansion of the free childcare scheme is falling short. With the charity Coram Family and Childcare finding that parents in some parts of the country are spending over 50% of their income on childcare, and with children needing to be registered for nurseries before they are born, what more are the...

Schools: Special Needs Pupils - Question (19 Maw 2024)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, the noble Baroness has outlined a range of measures, but the truth is that there is insufficient capacity in the system. I spoke to one parent—I do not think she would mind me referring to her as a pushy parent—who has waited for 18 months and has still not had her child assessed. Given the social and the ethnic disparities mentioned by noble Lords, is the noble Baroness 100%...
