And maybe the next one will say 'sorry we put you all out of business' :'(

I entirely agree with the noble Baroness. The evidence is clear: although we have had a dramatic increase in the quality of early years provisionit has risen from 69% to 93% rated good or outstanding by Ofsted since 2010those attached to schools are the best. That is why we have been encouraging primary schools to open nurseries, and we will continue to do so through our free school process. She makes a very good point about bilingual nursery staff. Through our recruitment drive for teachers, we are working with the Spanish Government to recruit teachers from Spain. We are looking at whether we can work with France and Germany, and I will certainly take her point back to the teams.

How are primary schools responding to the Governments encouragement to open more nurseries?

Generally, well. It was only a few rounds ago that we allowed primary free school applications to include nurseries, and a considerable proportion of them have now come with nurseries. As I said, that is something that we are keen to encourage: any opening of primary schools should come with nurseries attached.
