§ 19. Mr. Swayne
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what assessment he has made of the extent to which collective acts of worship are taking place in school. 
§ Jacqui Smith
Ofsted inspections underpin our commitment that all schools are expected to make provision for a daily act of collective worship. Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Schools' annual report for 1998–99, published in February 2000, revealed that 94 per cent. of primary schools provide a daily act of collective worship. The report says that in most schools teachers work hard to make collective worship a meaningful experience which provides pupils with a chance to reflect on important issues and builds a sense of community.
