HC Deb 04 July 2000 vol 353 c123W
Mr. Bercow

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if he will make a statement on his policy towards European schools following UK teaching practices in respect of dyslexic pupils; which body is responsible for the establishment of curricula and teaching practice in European schools; and to which EU institution that body is responsible. [128110]

Jacqui Smith

The European schools have their own policy and procedures for the integration of pupils with special educational needs, including dyslexic pupils. Decisions on policy and curricular matters are for the European Schools Board of Governors, a body established by international treaty, on which the Governments of all 15 EU member states are represented.
