Detail of outcome
Our response to the Schools that work for everyone consultation. It details a package of measures which are intended to foster cross-sector collaboration in order to improve outcomes for pupils across the education system, and create new good school places that are accessible for all children of all backgrounds.
We have also published a Memorandum of understanding with the Grammar School Heads Association (GSHA) and a Joint understanding with the Independent Schools Council (ISC), who commit to work in partnership with state schools to support these objectives.
We’re consulting on proposals to create more good school places. The proposals include:
- expecting independent schools to support existing state schools, open new state schools or offer funded places to children whose families can’t afford to pay fees
- asking universities to commit to sponsoring or setting up new schools in exchange for the ability to charge higher fees
- allowing existing selective schools to expand and new selective schools to open, while making sure they support non-selective schools
- allowing new faith free schools to select up to 100% of pupils based on their faith, while making sure they include pupils from different backgrounds
