§ Viscount Simon
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether OFSTED reports take into account the efforts of schools to promote road safety and to educate children in the attitudes to vehicular use that they will need to adopt in order to become safe drivers; and [HL3082]
Whether OFSTED reports take into account the efforts of schools to seek the implementation of safer routes to schools and to provide appropriate fixtures, such as lockers and cycle parking facilities, to make it practical for pupils to cycle to school; and [HL3083]
Whether OFSTED reports take into account traffic conditions in the vicinity of schools at their starting and finishing times. [HL3084]
§ The Minister of State, Department for Education and Employment (Baroness Blackstone)
The content of school inspection reports is prescribed in OFSTED's Framework for Inspection, which is a matter for Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Schools in England. I have asked the Chief Inspector, Chris Woodhead, to write to the noble Lord and to place a copy of his letter in the Library.
