Schools: St. George's Day

Volume 508: debated on Tuesday 6 April 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families whether his Department plans to promote St. George’s Day in schools in 2010. (322600)

There are no plans for the Department to promote St. George’s day in schools. The citizenship curriculum already contributes towards building and promoting a British identity and shared British values, and it offers opportunities to explore what it is to be British. However, it is a local decision for schools to choose if they wish to celebrate St. George’s day or not.
