unstar this property answer text <p>The Department for Education has not conducted any assessment of the number of state-funded schools where religious items or clothing form part of the uniform policy for pupils or staff.</p><p>It is for the governing body of each school to decide whether pupils should wear a uniform, and if so, what that should be. We do, however, expect schools to have full regard to their responsibilities under equalities law, and to act sensibly, fairly and flexibly in the interests of all their students in setting their school uniform policy.</p><p>Any dress code for school staff is an issue for the employer, whether that is the governing body or the local authority. As part of the general terms and conditions of employment agreed with employees, employers should consider an appropriate dress code, relevant to the individual setting, taking into account the requirements of the post and having proper regard to equality and diversity considerations.</p><p>School uniform guidance can be found at:</p><p><a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/publications/school-uniform" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/publications/school-uniform</a></p>

It showed that in 2012/13 converter academies previously rated as either ‘good' or 'satisfactory' were more likely to improve their rating than local authority (LA) maintained mainstream schools, and also showed converter academies previously rated as ‘outstanding' were more likely to retain that rating than LA maintained mainstream schools.</p><p> </p><p>[1]<a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/performance-of-converter-academies-in-2012-to-2013" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/performance-of-converter-academies-in-2012-to-2013</a></p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>There is no target for the proportion of children attending a free school who do not belong to the designated faith of such a school. When over-subscribed, faith designated free schools may take account of faith in allocating up to 50% of their places. The remaining places must be allocated on the basis of over-subscription criteria not related to faith, and may be filled by pupils of the faith, other faiths or none.</p> more like this
