§ Mrs. Currie
To ask the Secretary of State for Education when the revision of the OFSTED framework for school inspection will be complete; what the policy for inspection of religious education will be; what the proposals are for the inspection of sex education within the framework; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Robin Squire
Inspections of schools under the Education (Schools) Act 1992, are required to report on the quality of education and standards achieved, and that in curricular and other matters, schools meet legal requirements.
The detailed content of the framework for inspection is a matter for Professor Sutherland.
I have asked Professor Sutherland to write to my hon. Friend.
