Church Commissioner written answer: out-of-school education

On 30th May 2018, Dame Caroline Spelman, the Second Church Estates Commissioner, answered a written question from Bob Blackman, the Conservative Member for Harrow East, about the Church’s view of the Government’s consultation on out-of-school education settings:

Bob Blackman: To ask the Honourable Member for Meriden, representing the Church Commissioners, could she update the House on the view of the Church of England’s Education Office following the publication of the Government’s response to the Out-of-school education consultation.

Dame Caroline Spelman: Following the publication of the findings from the Department for Education’s consultation on out-of-school education, the Church of England’s Chief Education Officer, the Revd Nigel Genders, said: “We welcome the Government’s response to the consultation and the proposals to focus resources and energy on the areas of most concern rather than creating unhelpful bureaucracy.” The Church of England will go on working with Government on any proposal that would achieve this outcome.
