The deeply damaging plans announced by the Government to relax admissions rules for faith schools are a terrible blow for social cohesion. At a time when the Government should be doing everything it can to promote an integrated society, it has instead decided to worsen the effects of divisive faith schools.

The Government speaks of the need to foster integration and social cohesion, but by removing the admissions cap that governs faith school admissions they are promoting divisive religious segregation.

We'll be opposing plans to increase religious segregation in schools every step of the way.

What will our society look like in 100 years if we divide generations of children by their parents' religion? The effects of this short-sighted policy will be disastrous. We're trying to stop this from happening, but we need your help.
