Norman Baker: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many reports have been made to his Departments nominated officers under paragraph 16 of the revised Civil Service Code since its publication on 6 June 2006. 
Mr. Dismore: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families which schools in Hendon are offering extended hours; what additional services they are providing in the extended hours; what funding has been made available for those extended hours; and if he will make a statement. 
Beverley Hughes: We want all schools to offer access to extended services by 2010, including providing access to child care and a range of activities, with at least half of all primary and a third of secondary schools doing so by September 2008; The core offer of extended services in and around schools comprises: a varied menu of activities in primary and secondary schools; high quality child care 8 am to 6 pm 48 weeks a year in primary schools; parenting support; swift and easy access to a wide range of specialist support services such as health and social care; and wider community access to ICT, sports and arts facilities.
We do not hold reliable information on individual services within schools but the Training and Development Agency for Schools (TDA) does collect reliable data on schools delivering access to the extended schools full core offer. We encourage schools to work in clusters to help maximise delivery and to provide more joined up services for their local communities. Clusters often cross constituency boundaries, which means that information on extended services at constituency level must be treated with care. The following table shows the extended schools data for Hendon.

Month to month variations can occur, resulting in figures going down as well as up in individual parliamentary constituencies, for example as a result of local school reorganisations. There are many other schools which are already providing individual parts of the core offer that are not yet included in these figures.

Bob Russell: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families if he will increase the age limit for recipients of Family Fund grants to enable those between 16 and 18-years-old to qualify; and if he will make a statement.
