The TES podcast – Faith schools special
Join Richard Vaughan as he tackles one of the most controversial issues in England's school system: the role of the faith school. Richard hears from the Church of England and the National Secular Society on the issue of admissions on the basis of faith. He talks to the head of one of the country's leading Jewish schools, Hasmonean High in north London, to see if faith schools promote segregation. He discusses the future of faith schools with the British Humanist Association and, finally, he discusses the prevalence of religion in Muslim schools with Dr Muhammad Abdul Bari.
