Canlyniadau 21–40 o 318 ar gyfer speaker:Baroness Wilcox of Newport

Coram’s Charter for Children - Question (16 Ion 2024)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: Improving children’s lives should centre on ensuring that we deliver high standards for all children in all schools. According to an IFS report released last month, schools serving more disadvantaged pupils have seen larger spending cuts since 2010. How do the Government justify this gap in pupil spending?

Schools: Safeguarding - Motion to Take Note ( 7 Rha 2023)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Walmsley, and I associate myself with much of what she said, including on the importance of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. I would also like to congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Jenkin, on securing this debate on such an important subject: safeguarding children in schools. Safeguarding has a set of...

Universities: Nuclear Energy Sector Skills - Question ( 7 Rha 2023)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, when I questioned the Minister on skills on 27 November, she replied that the Government had announced £200 million of funding for local skills innovation funds. Are the Government aware of any examples of these local funds being available or currently used in the nuclear energy sector?

Jobs Market: Graduates - Question (27 Tach 2023)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: Can the noble Baroness tell us why the Secretary of State has cut the higher technical education skills injection fund by one-third, down from £32 million to £21 million, at a time when the country is facing major skills shortages? It is just another example of short-termism, selling the country—and graduates—short.

Children’s Care Homes: Reform - Question (20 Tach 2023)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: Local authority budgets are absolutely squeezed; profiteering is eye-watering; there are reports of horrendous abuse; and vulnerable children are being sent half way across the UK. What will the Government do to end the profiteering and ensure that children in care receive the best the system can offer?

Schools: Special Educational Needs - Question (15 Tach 2023)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: Can the Minister tell the House what subsequent measures the DfE will put in place following reports from Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission, and from Hertfordshire County Council this week, identifying widespread and systemic failings in SEN provision?

King’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) ( 9 Tach 2023)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, today’s debate covers some of the important areas so vital to a well-functioning society, but it is regrettable that the measures announced in the gracious Speech do precious little to make a real difference to the ambitions and opportunities available to our country’s most precious resource—our children and young people. I have worked in education for much of my career, and I...

Schools: Catering Facilities and RAAC - Question (23 Hyd 2023)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: I appreciate that the Minister may need to give a written response to this, but how many children are currently being schooled online in temporary or non-classroom settings because of RAAC? Notwithstanding the Minister’s earlier response, how long do the Government estimate it will take to completely investigate all schools?

Cultural Education Plan - Question (17 Hyd 2023)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, the number of creative studies teachers is on the decline in England: between 2011 and 2022, there was a 20% drop in drama teachers, 15% in music and 11% in art. The Government are still missing targets for recruitment to combat this decline. The impact is that fewer students are studying creative subjects, limiting children’s creativity and risking future talent pipelines for our...

Schools: Music, Art, Craft and Dance - Question (16 Hyd 2023)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, as a former drama teacher and current chair of trustees of the Council for Dance, Drama and Musical Theatre, I know how important studying the arts is to children’s lives. When such access is limited in schools, it is the poorer students who are denied the benefits. Surely we all want young people to carry a love of learning that sets them up to achieve and thrive, and the arts...

Children’s Social Care Implementation Strategy (Public Services Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (20 Med 2023)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, I declare that I am a vice-president of the Local Government Association, as noted in the register. I thank my noble friend Lady Morris of Yardley and all members of the Public Services Committee for this excellent, direct and wide-ranging report on such a vital area of our social services provision. It is indeed always worth listening to our young people. The Government’s...

Lifelong Learning (Higher Education Fee Limits) Bill - Report: Amendment 1 ( 5 Med 2023)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, I rise to speak to Amendment 4, which would require the Secretary of State to publish a review of the lifelong loan entitlement before bringing in further regulations on fee limits. I welcome the Minister's comments in Committee, and I fully understand her feedback about what information will accompany further regulations as these changes are rolled out. We have brought this...

Prison: Support for Dependent Children - Question (18 Gor 2023)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, we already heard that around 17,000 children’s mothers are sent to prison every year. How do we know the impact of separating mothers and children when the Government collect no clear data on pregnant women and mothers in the criminal justice system?

Higher Education: Arts and Humanities - Question (28 Meh 2023)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, among UEA’s alumni of novelists and Nobel laureates was a former colleague of mine. We taught together in the English department of a high school in Newport. Her teaching skills were exceptional, honed by her years studying the arts at UEA. Notwithstanding the Minister’s previous responses, what, if anything, are the Government doing to ensure that such motivating arts teachers...

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

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, last March Matt Hancock told the Times Educational Supplement that the lack of neurodiversity training in initial teacher training is “striking” and needs to change. Can the Minister tell us if anything has changed in this policy area since that statement was made over 15 months ago by a former Tory Health Secretary?

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

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, this is an important addition to the education portfolio of legislation presented to this House by the Government, and from the outset I state the Labour Party’s support for the financial funding for students as evidenced in this legislation. I thank the Minister for introducing the Bill with clarity and in such detail. We look forward to hearing the maiden speeches in this debate...

School Uniform Policies - Question (12 Meh 2023)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: To ask His Majesty’s Government, following the recommendation of the Welsh Minister for Education that school governing bodies should review uniform policies, what assessment they have made of the case for doing this in England.

School Uniform Policies - Question (12 Meh 2023)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: I thank the Minister for her Answer and the statutory guidance being put in place. But the Government have never been clear about how they are going to assess the success of the guidance. Has it reduced costs for parents? Are schools complying with it? Are stronger policies such as the ones we have in place in Wales needed? Can the Minister please tell us whether there are any plans to review...

Free Music Education - Question (12 Meh 2023)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, in Wales the National Music Service is carrying out a review of the terms and conditions for local authority-hosted music service teachers, commencing this autumn. It will look at whether the lack of teacher retention and pay is a factor in delivering good music education throughout all key stages. Have the UK Government thought of doing something similar in England?
