less scope to teach about local history. This is thanks in large


part to the extra money sectred to the academy programme. Todax members


of the Education Select Comlittee came here. They are on a mission to


find out if their programme for the academies works as well for primary


schools as it does for secondary schools. What we have seen hs that


as long as academies can work together in groups, they can create


the kind of scale that makes sense of being an academy. Academhes are


free from local authority control and have the power to choosd their


own curriculum and the abilhty to set their own pay and conditions for


staff. Hence can also changd the length of terms and school days

will be outstanding. One te`cher told the committee she had concerns


about more primary schools becoming academies. I teach our maritime


history and we talk about Aly Johnson and the local


characteristics of Hull which make us proud. I do not want to be part


of a local academy that is buying a curriculum from America. Thd final


report on academies will be published later in the year. Do you


accept that academies have been a hit by summer there are good schools


and good academies and also less successful schools in both


categories. We are concerned about the cherry picking of evidence.


After 154 schools that were found to have below floor targets, over half

about protecting terms and conditions for your members rather


than what is best for your pupils? The two go hand`in`hand for me. We


must ensure that all our chhldren are given access to the verx best


education which anyone involved in teaching the school system would


want. The academies are not rather than on that either. But thdy have


been effective in improving school standards? If you look at things


like City, challenge, which was far cheaper in terms of good and


sustainable school improvemdnts that has been more successftl than


the academies programme. Here we have schools as islands and you do


not get good school improvelent across an area unless you gdt good


collaboration. The headteachers have more freedom over staff thex each


means they can attract and retain good teachers. Surely if yot're a


good teacher, you will be overjoyed about that? We have not seen


academies using their peak discretion is to do anything except


towards the most senior poshtions in the school so the things th`t have


gone up and academies have not been teacher pay. Is this a stepfather

ideological programme. We are very keen if your people, teacher or

and high`pressure reasserting itself for a short time, so that Wddnesday


and Thursday will be generally fine at a big change in the forecast


compared to yesterday for Friday and the weekend and it looks as though


conditions will turn much more unsettled through Friday and the


weekend with the rest of outbreaks of rain. That is a long way off and


things can change. There is a cold front we successfully forec`st to

showery weekend. The government needs to do lore to


protect the East Yorkshire dconomy from future flooding` the stark call


from a council today followhng a report into Decembers tidal surge.


East Riding of Yorkshire Cotncil says cutbacks at the Environment


Agency are preventing it from doing its job properly and putting the


area at risk. But it has also called for a thorough review of flood


warning procedures to help people prepare for future events. Phillip


Norton reports. It was the most damaging co`stal


flooding since 1953. Homes were lost and businesses closed. Now this


report has said that the tiling of flood warnings and tidal prddictions


by the Environment Agency nded to be reviewed and no cause for the


government to help. The key message is that the Environment Agency is


underfunded by the government further responsibilities it carries


and have an opportunity, working with all the members of Parliament


together, to put our case forward. That is a huge economic risk for the


East Riding and for how. ``for Hull. Across the East Riding 69 btsinesses


were affected and over 300 homes flooded. It was many months before


some businesses could reopen. The water was up to here and evdrything


was completely tipped over. This woman says she was happy with the


warnings but there was nothhng that could be done to protect her


business. What happened happened. It was quick and it happened. Ht was a


freak. You just accepted it really. Others also say they were w`rned. We


go regularly on the website and use that that as much notice as possible

with the council. The government says it is spending more th`n ever


before. If you want to be in touch on this matter, here is how to
