star this property answer text <p>The School Admissions Code requires that all school places, including those offered to pupils on a school’s waiting list, are allocated strictly in accordance with a school’s published admissions criteria. This ensures fairness and transparency in the process and means that those applying for admission to a school understand from the outset their likelihood of gaining a place. It also means that there is no incentive for those who do not closely match a school’s admissions criteria, to remain on a waiting list while occupying a place at an alternative school.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Academies, including free schools, university technical colleges and studio schools, have the freedom to set their own pay and conditions policies, and so are free to offer their teachers access to car purchase salary sacrifice schemes. Currently 15% of all primary schools and 62% of all secondary schools are academies.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>In local authority maintained schools, changes to the statutory pay and conditions of teachers must first be referred to the independent School Teachers’ Review Body (STRB). Recent STRB referrals have focused on fundamental reforms to the overall pay and conditions framework for teachers. Following the STRB’s recommendations, these reforms have given schools much greater freedom to attract and retain the best teachers and to reward individuals in line with their contribution to improving their pupils’ achievements.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The demands on the STRB’s time and resources in the reform process mean that the Government has had to make hard decisions on the issues it refers to STRB. In light of the focus of the important referrals above, we have not prioritised revisions to the existing salary sacrifice arrangements. However, the Government will consider whether the issue should be included in future referrals to the STRB.</p><p> </p>
