Mrs. Curtis-Thomas: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if he will make a statement on trends in numeracy and literacy among children in junior schools in the borough of Sefton since 1996. 
Ms Estelle Morris: In the 2000 Key Stage 2 tests, 80 per cent. of Sefton's 11-year-olds achieved the expected standard for their age in English, an increase of 15 percentage points since 1996. In mathematics, 77 per cent. of pupils achieved the expected standard, a 16 percentage point increase since 1996. These results are clear evidence of the success of the National Literacy and Numeracy Strategies.

executive agencies and associated public bodies; and if he will list those which have existed in the last three years. 
Mr. Wills: There are currently no contracts in existence between SERCo and the Department, its executive agencies and associated public bodies. Contracts which have existed in the last three years are listed as follows:
Mr. Burstow: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if he will instruct Ofsted to inspect all establishments for which it is responsible to ensure that (a) resuscitation policies which respect the rights of all pupils and students for whom they are responsible are in place, (b) such policies are understood by relevant staff and accessible to them and (c) such policies are subject to robust audit and monitoring arrangements. 
Ms Estelle Morris: It is for schools, colleges and others to develop their own first aid policies and procedures based on an assessment of local need. My Department has issued "Guidance on First Aid for Schools: a good practice guide" which provides advice for schools on drawing up first aid policies and ensuring that they are meeting their statutory duties. It specifically advises that first aid training should include resuscitation techniques for children. I have asked HM Chief Inspector, Mike Tomlinson, to write to the hon. Member and to place a copy of his letter in the Library.
