Schools to consult before status switch

Schools must consult locally before changing to foundation status
under the Education Act passed last week.

Alison King, chair of the Local Government Association’s children
and young people board, said: “We are intensely relieved that the
government has listened and recognised that this important
safeguard needs to be in place.”

But King said there were still concerns that foundation schools
could set their own admissions policies.
