Mr. Gibb: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills pursuant to the answer of 16 November 2005, Official Report, column 1280W, on the Basic Skills Agency, what steps she is taking to promote the Basic Skills Agency Quality Mark in schools. 
The main responsibility for promoting the Quality Mark to schools rests with the Basic Skills Agency's partner local authorities. Most local authorities (LAs) make the link between the Quality Mark and the school improvement agenda and self evaluation requirements. Some LAs use working for the Quality Mark award as part of the exit strategy from a period of additional support provided through the Primary National Strategy Leadership Programme or Intensifying Support Project. Local authorities also advertise the award through their own networks and communications with schools, including head teacher meetings and governor conferences. Many authorities also ensure that all their advisers are aware of the Quality Mark award and can suggest it to schools that they think will benefit when they are on school visits.The Agency publishes termly in The Times Educational Supplement" the names of the schools who have gained the award and also produces print and website information about the Quality Mark.
