Education Bill — No requirements of attendance at a place of religious worship — rejected — 6 Feb 2002 at 21:30

The majority No voters rejected a new clause[1] to the Education Bill. This would have required religious state schools to accept a minimum of 25% of non-religious applicants. It also states that pupils admitted to state schools, and their parents and guardians, do not have to attend a place of worship or belong to a particular faith. However, the amendment was defeated.

The main aims of the Education Bill were to[2]:

  • Allow schools to exempt themselves from laws which prevented them from innovating. However, this is dependent on the Secretary of State's approval.
  • Give good schools the option of qualifying for greater flexibility in the National Curriculum and teachers' pay.
  • Allow schools to join together in a federation under a single governing body.
  • Further regulate school admissions, exclusions and attendance policies.
  • Give the Secretary of State further powers to intervene in failing schools.
  • Introduce a new regulatory regime for independent schools.
