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

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, the number of schools known to be affected by the safety crisis is rising, but it is not just the number of schools affected by RAAC that matters: it is the lost learning, lost opportunity and disruption to pupils. Can the Minister confirm how many children’s education has been disrupted and how many of these are in their exam years? How will lost learning be made up for to...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (8th Day): Amendment 259 (18 Med 2023)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, I will speak to this group and to Amendment 276, in the name of my noble friend Lady Hayman of Ullock. I thank the Minister for her time last week in explaining the government position. It was really appreciated, and I hope I can persuade her of the merits of Amendment 276 today. On these Benches, we believe local authorities should have an explicit right to establish and run...

Lifelong Learning (Higher Education Fee Limits) Bill - Third Reading: Motion (12 Med 2023)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her constructive engagement on this Bill and for briefing Members at an early stage, along with the noble Lord, Lord Evans of Rainow, and the right honourable Member for Harlow. I also thank the Bill team. Labour supports the Bill’s aim; we support the idea that people can access funding to undertake the learning they need throughout their career. With...

Life Skills and Citizenship - Question for Short Debate ( 7 Med 2023)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, I welcome the opportunity to speak today and thank the noble Baroness, Lady Garden, for initiating and introducing such an interesting debate. Labour is committed, as part of our breaking down the barriers to opportunity mission, to building a broad school education that enables children to thrive and to develop life skills. Life skills should be taught throughout the curriculum....

Teacher Shortages - Question ( 6 Med 2023)

Baroness Twycross: To ask His Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of teacher shortages in schools in England, and what plans they have to address the issue.

Teacher Shortages - Question ( 6 Med 2023)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, on Monday we discussed the literally crumbling school estate and, today, the shockingly high teacher shortages. It seems that the entire school system is creaking at the seams, with our children paying the price. Almost one in 10 of the total teacher workforce in England resigned last year: 40,000 teachers left the profession and 4,000 retired. There are shortages across the board...

Lifelong Learning (Higher Education Fee Limits) Bill - Report: Amendment 3 ( 5 Med 2023)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her detailed response and thank all those who participated in this short debate. It is regrettable that the Government do not view this as a useful amendment. In Labour’s view, it would improve the likely outcomes of the Bill and the outcomes for the students who the Bill intends to help. Notwithstanding that, I beg leave to withdraw my amendment....

Lifelong Learning (Higher Education Fee Limits) Bill - Report: Amendment 3 ( 5 Med 2023)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, I will speak to Amendment 3, standing in my name and the names of my noble friends Lady Wilcox, Lady Thornton and Lord Blunkett. I thank the noble Lord, Lord Evans, for giving his time yesterday to meet to discuss the Bill, and I thank the Minister for her own engagement in correspondence on the Bill. As my noble friend Lady Wilcox stated in the debate on the previous group of...

Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete in Education Settings - Statement ( 4 Med 2023)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, I welcome the opportunity for us to discuss the issue of reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete, or RAAC, which is one of the most pressing issues this country faces in both education and the wider built environment. I declare an interest as London’s Deputy Mayor for Fire and Resilience. I thank the Minister for her time earlier briefing Members of this House; her approach in this...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Childcare ( 7 Aws 2023)

Baroness Twycross: To ask His Majesty's Government what estimate they have made of the number of families who will take up 30 hours of funded childcare from September 2025; and what is that number as a percentage of all children from nine months to the start of school.

Written Answers — Department for Education: Childcare ( 7 Aws 2023)

Written Answers — Department for Education: Childcare ( 7 Aws 2023)

Baroness Twycross: To ask His Majesty's Government what estimate they have made of the additional number of children aged (1) nine months to one year, and (2) one to two years, who will access funded childcare hours from September 2024; and what is this number as a percentage of all children aged nine months to two years.

Housing Crisis: Rural and Coastal Communities - Question for Short Debate (24 Gor 2023)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, I thank the right reverend Prelate for initiating this important debate. The starting premise for a debate on rural and coastal homes is that everyone deserves a quality home they can afford that meets the needs of themselves and their families. The issue the Question highlights is not about attacking those who choose a staycation in a holiday let; it is about what can be done to...

Higher Education Reform - Statement (20 Gor 2023)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, what is higher education for? If you looked at the approach summarised by the Government’s response to the Augar review, you would assume it was solely aimed to monetise learning so that the higher the income of the graduate, the higher the value of the course. The letter from the Minister to Peers says that the Government believe that higher education should give students the...

MMR Vaccine - Question (20 Gor 2023)

Baroness Twycross: To ask His Majesty’s Government what further steps they will take to work with schools to encourage greater take up of the MMR vaccine among pupils.

MMR Vaccine - Question (20 Gor 2023)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, I declare an interest as chair of the London Resilience Forum and as someone who contracted viral encephalitis as a child, albeit from mumps, not measles. Measles in children can cause death or serious disability. The increase in measles breakouts comes as research finds that the number of nurses in schools has dropped by 35%, with some local authorities scrapping the role...

Schools: Absenteeism - Question (20 Gor 2023)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, three times as many children receiving free school meals are severely absent from school compared to those who are not eligible. This puts the UK’s poorest children at yet another disadvantage compared to their peers. What steps are the Government taking to support these pupils? The Government outlined plans to tackle absence rates two months ago. How long will these take to fully...
