Education is ‘out of step’ on faith schools

Post by GD on Mon 15 Aug 2011, 5:04 pm

THE Education Department’s admission policy relating to faith schools is out of step with other places, according to a politician and former head teacher.

Jane Stephens’ comments came after a review board panel ruled, by a majority, that a decision of the department was reasonable and complied with the law.

It followed a challenge by Rob Gregson relating to Notre Dame du Rosaire Primary School about which few details have been released because the hearing was held in camera.

‘The response of Education does not reflect the situation elsewhere in that Roman Catholic schools do accept children whose parents want a faith-based education for them providing there is room in the school,’ said Deputy Stephens (from GEP)
