Parental Choice And Church Schools

EDM number 82 in 2015-16, proposed by David Amess on 04/06/2015.
Categorised under the topics of Children and families, Religion and faith communities and Schools.

That this House believes that parental choice is an important part of the UK's education system; acknowledges the diverse range of education provision and different types of schools; recognises that Church schools predate state provision; commends the work of Church schools which are often serving the most disadvantaged areas and deprived communities; respects the right of parents to choose a school on the basis of their faith, a right which has existed for centuries; and calls on the Government to safeguard these schools for future generations.

This motion has been signed by a total of 11 MPs.
