GCSE and A-level Results: Attainment Gap - Question for Short Debate ( 8 Med 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for bringing this important debate to the House and the many speakers who have spoken of the need to highlight the failings in the system in order to restore the horrendous inequalities we suffer as a nation because of the gaps we have in educating our children. I taught for almost 35 years, mainly in south Wales, which has a similar demographic to the...

Social Housing (Regulation) Bill [HL] - Committee: Amendment 8 ( 6 Med 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: The government amendments are mainly of a technical nature, and Her Majesty’s Opposition broadly support their introduction. However, some of them introduce slightly more significant changes, and it is right that the Committee should consider these in more detail. Could the Minister explain the purpose of the amendments which repeal Sections 198A and 198B, and further confirm what...

Social Housing (Regulation) Bill [HL] - Committee: Amendment 3 ( 6 Med 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, I am glad to hear that the amendment of the noble Baroness, Lady Pinnock, which seems both eminently sensible and fair, will be taken away by the Minister for further discussion—a very positive outcome—and that the Minister agrees that these are very important issues and that registered providers of social housing should always seek to remediate properties. Again, I thank the...

Social Housing (Regulation) Bill [HL] - Committee: Amendment 3 ( 6 Med 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, I draw the Committee’s attention to my interest in the register as a vice-president of the Local Government Association. This group of amendments relates to monitoring and enforcement of what will become this Act, with three of the four amendments tabled by the Labour Front Bench. Amendment 3, in the name of my noble friend Lady Hayman of Ullock, would allow the regulator to make...

Schools Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 108 (18 Gor 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, Amendment 118D would mean teachers in all schools would be “required to have, or be enrolled on a course such that they are working towards, qualified teacher status” before September 2024. I have spoken extensively previously about teachers without QTS having less pedagogical training and less subject knowledge than their qualified colleagues, although I do note the...

Schools Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 101 (18 Gor 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, I am speaking to the two amendments we have in this group: Amendments 118G and 118H. I thank my noble friend Lady Lawrence for making some extremely salient points which I will refer to subsequently. To the noble Lord, Lord Storey, I would like to explain that Amendment 118G will require every academy to follow the national curriculum. We have the list of things we would like to...

Schools Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 87 (18 Gor 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: The amendments in this group have attendance at their core, and nothing is more important. In addition to being directly related to physical health, the attendance of learners in school is affected by well-being and mental health, and by attitudes towards learning and schooling. My noble friend Lord Hunt and the noble Lord, Lord Storey, made some important points regarding children with...

Heritage Railways and Tramways (Voluntary Work) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (15 Gor 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute to this debate but, before I begin, I beg leave from your Lordships to mention another aspect of heritage that I had the great pleasure of engaging in yesterday evening, back home in Newport—in Caerleon in fact. The organisation BCA’37, run entirely by volunteers, ensures that the history of the Basque child refugees who came to...

Schools Bill [HL] - Report (1st Day) (Continued): Amendment 62 (12 Gor 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, this is my first opportunity at the Dispatch Box after the vote we took last week on changing the hours of the House of Lords. I am so glad to see that all those people who were so clear about staying after the dinner break are here—not. Good mental health is fundamental to be able to thrive in life. I spoke in Committee about the experience of growing up with a dearly loved...

Schools Bill [HL] - Report (1st Day): Amendment 26 (12 Gor 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: I have several things in common with the noble Lord, Lord Storey. One is that I also chaired the SACRE in Newport; the other is our teaching careers. The aim of Amendment 30 is to ensure that cultural education is balanced and non-exclusionary. In a modern society where children are exposed to all kinds of views, particularly online, it could provide an opportunity to discuss a variety of...

Schools Bill [HL] - Report (1st Day): Amendment 10 (12 Gor 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, our Amendment 44 would remove the exemption that teachers in academies have from needing to have qualified status, but it gives a grace period until September 2024 to give schools and teachers time to adjust, which we feel is a sensible way forward. It redresses the opt-out from 2012, when David Cameron removed the need for academies to have QTS. Since that time, there has been a...

Social Housing (Regulation) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (27 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, I welcome the noble Viscount, Lord Camrose, and look forward to hearing his maiden speech shortly. Before that, Labour welcomes the Social Housing (Regulation) Bill, which introduces long-overdue changes to the social housing regulation regime, five years on from the Grenfell Tower tragedy. However, we regret that what is essentially narrow and largely uncontroversial legislation...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 150 (22 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, these amendments give us another opportunity to talk about the important issue of safeguarding. It is an issue that has fallen between the cracks of the ambiguity we have dissected and discovered in our debates on most clauses of this Bill. The fact that there have been so many probing amendments in Committee speaks to the level of uncertainty in the House about dealing with such a...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 145 (22 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: I thank the Minister for her reply. Picking up on the glasses point raised by my noble friend Lady Morris and in the amendment of the noble Baroness, Lady Finlay, I remember that we had a huge influx of Roma children to Newport a couple of years ago. Ensuring that they got their eyes tested was very much part of what we did for them—it opened up a whole new world and we kept a spare pair of...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 145 (22 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: Good mental health is fundamental to thriving in life. I knew it from the other side of the tracks. My dear, late mother suffered greatly with mental health throughout her life, so I grew up and grew old trying to deal with it. It made me much more aware of what it means. I always used to say that if my mother came into school or wherever wearing a plaster cast on her arm, they would know...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 136 (22 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, the general thrust of these amendments is to make school attendance order conditions easier for parents by, for example, increasing the information handover period, compelling consideration of the child’s relevant medical conditions—looking at the child holistically. An important factor that has not had enough mention is that of the impact of poverty on attendance. Poverty...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 120 (22 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, this is a technical question and compassion for parents who are often struggling to deal with vulnerable children must be factored in. These amendments are intended to simplify the immediate duty to one of registration, leaving it to the local authority then to inform the parents of the other requirements and increase the timescale to accommodate additional responsibilities on...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 112A (22 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: Sorry, I was just waiting, because every time I have tried to stand up someone has spoken. I am glad that the noble Lord, Lord Storey, reminded me that I should declare my interest as a vice-president of the Local Government Association—hard won and well deserved, I think. We have heard a fascinating debate with a wide range of views. It is the first time that I have had the pleasure of...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 97A (20 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: As my noble friend Lord Knight expressed, we support the fundamental right for home education. Interesting practice is evident in a variety of settings. However, checks and balances need to be present in the system. I echo what others have said in paying tribute to my noble friend Lord Soley, who told me earlier today that he began this work in 2017. I also echo the point made by the noble...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 91A (20 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, we support the principle of Amendment 171B. There are currently many barriers to further education institutions working effectively with academies and MATs, and it is apposite that this is being raised. Funding further education appropriately continues to be a prime issue, as noted by several noble Lords. Schools are more often part of the solution, not the problem, so we need a...
