Catholic Education questions for consideration (Election 2024)

At the moment, the Government currently requires admission authorities for a mainstream free school designated with a religious character to allocate at least 50% of its available places without reference to faith-based admission criteria, when oversubscribed.

There is currently a consultation on whether that cap should remain in place in order to encourage the development of more good-quality schools.

The Education Committee has prepared a document that may be helpful both in this issue and regarding the upcoming General Election.

The consultation is open until Thursday 20th June.
