National Admission Policy for Faith Schools

Volume 635: debated on Monday 29 January 2018

I present this petition on behalf of 155 residents of my Telford constituency.

The petition states:

The petition of residents of Telford,

Declares that the national admissions policy for faith schools is discriminatory; further that the Department for Education should abolish its current policy of a 50 per cent cap on faith-based school admissions; and, further, that a petition on this matter has gathered 155 signatures.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Department for Education to remove the 50 per cent cap on faith-based admissions, so that every child of faith can have access to faith school education.

And the petitioners remain, etc.
