Catholic School Told It’s Admission Policy Unfair
A complaint about the admissions policy of a Catholic school in South Croydon has been partially upheld.
They key point of the complaint is that as an oversubscribed school it had a points system for admissions that put an emphasis on early baptism and activity within the church as oppososed to geographical location (i.e. how close they live) of potential applicants.
This ruling will have a knock on effect on the selection policies of other so-called “faith” schools.
Best bet get rid of the “faith” element of all state schools and let’s make all schools truly community schools serving the local populations.
