Fovant School

Mr. Key: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment when she will publish her decision on the future of Fovant school near Salisbury. [3967]

Mr. Robin Squire: Proposals affecting the school are under consideration. A decision will be made as soon as possible.

Employment Contracts

Mr. Hain: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment how many (a) full-time jobs, (b) part-time jobs, (c) full-time jobs which are on (i) renewable and (ii) unrenewable fixed-term contracts, (d) part-time jobs which are on (i) renewable and (ii) unrenewable fixed-term contracts, (e) temporary jobs and (f) jobs classified as casual there have been in (1) her Department and (2) executive agencies of her Department for each year since 1992. [5424]

Mr. Robin Squire: The information is not available in the format requested. The numbers of permanent and casual staff employed by the Department and the Employment Service Agency from 1992 onwards can be found in annexe F of the Department's annual report, Cm3210, a copy of which is in the Library.

Teachers (Early Retirement)

Mr. Pickthall: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what is her estimate of the effect of the proposals for changes to early retirement provisions for teachers on the age profile of the profession. [5536]

Mrs. Gillan: My right hon. Friend expects that more experienced teachers will stay in teaching and therefore numbers in the age range 50 to 60 will rise if the proposals on early retirement are implemented. The number of teachers leaving the profession in their forties may increase as a result of the improved severance payments available to this age group. In the long term, she expects these changes to produce a smoother age profile for teachers, to that the required number of entrants to the profession remains broadly constant over time.

First Aid Training (Pupils)

Mr. Pearson: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what representations she has received concerning first aid training for pupils in (a) primary and (b) secondary schools; and if she will make a statement. [5582]

Mrs. Gillan: The Department has received five letters this year relating to the teaching of first aid in schools.

There is scope within national curriculum science for the teaching of first aid. Opportunities also exist within the wider curriculum, for example through programmes of personal, social and health education, for schools to provide information about first aid.

Assisted Places Scheme

Mr. Jamieson: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if she will list the independent schools receiving funds from the assisted places scheme that have had a full publicly available report by Ofsted or Her Majesty's inspectors in the past five years. [5597]

Mrs. Gillan: Inspections by Ofsted, to monitor the educational provision at independent schools and to ensure that minimum standards are being met in accordance with the Education Acts, do not normally lead to a published report, but the findings are submitted to the Department so that any necessary action can be taken to remedy any deficiencies. In the last five years, 294 schools participating in the assisted places scheme in England were inspected by Ofsted/HMI on that basis. In addition, Ofsted undertakes a programme of inspections on a sample of independent schools leading to full published reports. The following 14 participating schools were the subject of such published reports in the last five years:


Mr. Jamieson: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if she will list the independent schools benefiting from funds from the assisted places scheme, showing the number and percentage of children gaining five or more A-C passes in GCSE for the past five years. [5594]

Mrs. Gillan: The information requested is contained in a table of several pages which I have placed in the Library.

25 Nov 1996 : Column: 17

School Exclusions

Mr. Hall: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment how many (a) primary and (b) secondary pupils (i) were permanently excluded from school and (ii) had fixed-term exclusions from school in 1995-96; and how many of those in (i) returned to mainstream education. [5585]

Mr. Forth: This information is not available centrally.

The Department will be collecting figures for permanent exclusions in the school year 1995-96 as part of the annual schools census in January. These figures will be available later in 1997.

Selective and Modern Schools

Mr. Jamieson: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if she will list the (a) grammar schools, (b) schools that partially select pupils and (c) secondary modern schools in England and Wales, indicating the county where they are situated and whether they are grant maintained. [5598]

Mr. Robin Squire: The following tables list the maintained schools in England which classify themselves as selective or modern in the 1996 performance tables. For information on other schools which select pupils, I refer the hon. Member to the replies that I gave on 12 November, Official Report, column 134 and on 13 November, Official Report, column 276.

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Wales has responsibility for education matters in Wales.
