ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF CHILDREN BEING DENIED THEIR EDUCATIONAL ENTITLEMENTS

 

ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF CHILDREN BEING DENIED THEIR EDUCATIONAL ENTITLEMENTS

 

Commenting on primary school admissions, Chris Keates General Secretary of the NASUWT, the largest teachers’ union in the UK said:

 

“Too many parents today will be facing deep anxiety about finding a place in a primary school for their children.

 

“They are the victims of a system of school place planning and admissions that in the last few years has become increasingly chaotic as a result of Government policy which is fragmenting the education system.

 

“A public education system should provide basic educational entitlements for all children and young people. One such entitlement is a place in a good local school.

 

“Instead parents and children face disappointment and frustration as a result of the lack of coherent local place planning.

 

“But even where places may be available, too many parents and children, particularly from disadvantaged backgrounds, face selection by stealth because of the Government’s failure to ensure compliance with the fair admissions code.

 

“This is an unacceptable situation which the Government continues to compound rather than address.”
