§ 6. Miss Lestor
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will amend the regulations to ensure that rising fives in primary schools are treated in the same way as children attending nursery schools in relation to staffing and general facilities.
§ Mrs. Thatcher
The requirements about staffing and accommodation imposed by the Schools Regulations and Standards for School Premises Regulations which are applicable to pupils in nursery schools are similar to those for rising fives in other primary schools.
