The Board of Deputies today warmly welcomed the Government’s decision, announced by Prime Minister Theresa May, to end the 50 per cent cap on faith admissions to faith-based schools.
Vice President Sheila Gewolb said: “We have been advocating for this for some time. The measure has inhibited the creation of Jewish schools and has not demonstrably improved community cohesion. We look forward to working with the Government to enable more Jewish free schools to open and developing more effective means of their contributing to community cohesion.”
