EDM | John Clare Trust And Out Of School Learning

Posted on: 12th July 2011

Andrew George MP has seconded EDM2064. Motion reads:

“That this House notes that 13 July is John Clare’s birthday; congratulates the John Clare Trust on the launch of Every Child’s Right to the English Countryside campaign; further notes that a survey by Natural England highlights the fact that the likelihood of a child in the UK visiting any green space has halved in a generation; believes that schooling outside the classroom is a vital aspect of a child’s education and development; and calls for schools, teachers, parents and Government departments to prioritise children’s out of school learning.”
