Mr. Harry Greenway

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what research her Department has undertaken with regard to the best way of implementing home-school agreements; and if she will make a statement. [16932]

Mr. Forth

The Department has not commissioned research in this area beyond that referred to in the reply given to my hon. Friend on 29 January by my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State, the Member for Chesham and Amersham (Mrs. Gillan),Official Report, column 256. A good deal of work has however previously been undertaken on home-school agreements. This includes the two-year project "Home-School Contract of Partnership" carried out jointly by the Royal Society of Arts and the National Association of Head Teachers.
