To ask Her Majesty’s Government, in the light of the consultation on renewing the faith schools' selection cap, what plans they have for developing religious and ethnic integration in the event that the existing 50 per cent cap on religious selection is removed from free schools.
The 50 per cent cap on faith admissions to faith free schools has not resulted in mixed intakes in these schools. We are exploring through the Schools that work for everyone consultation alternative ways for ensuring such schools are inclusive in their outlook and attractive to parents of all faiths and none. All schools are already expected to promote fundamental British values, including mutual respect and tolerance of people of other faiths and none and all state-funded schools are also required to promote community cohesion.
