Your article "Church at loggerheads with Anglican sponsor" (TES, October 7) was incorrect when it said no places at academies sponsored by the United Learning Trust (ULT) are reserved for parents of church-goers.
The admissions policy for Salford city academy is different from the policy of ULT because it takes into account the fact that the predecessor school was voluntary-aided.
ULT is sensitive to the admissions issues raised by the diocese. Our admissions policy states that "up to 30 children attending a Christian church supported by the testimony of a ministerpriest confirming attendance" can be offered places. This is the fourth out of six admissions criteria, applied in order. This is just one example of the excellent co-operation that exists between the diocese of Manchester and ULT.
