§ Mr. Tony Banks
To ask the Secretary of State for Education on what criteria Stratford school was judged in its successful bid for a technology grant; what other schools in Newham made a bid; and which were successful.
§ Mr. Robin Squire
Bids for awards under the technology schools initiative, including the one from Stratford school, were judged on behalf of the Department by a team of professional technologists using the same national criteria. In the two years in which TSI awards were made, Newham local education authority put forward three bids on behalf of its schools. The bid from Sarah Bonnell school was successful.
