Motion text

That this House is concerned that the quality of education in schools close to Heathrow Airport is being compromised because children are denied full and proper development through outdoor learning due to noise from overhead flights; expresses deep concern that the Government is not adhering to its own manifesto, Learning out of the Classroom; calls on the Government to enshrine in law the right of children to educational outdoor space, a high standard of well-being and health as well as social and personal development; and further calls on the Government to ensure that such standards are enforced for schools in the proximity of Heathrow Airport before any approval for a third runway is granted.
