From the report in today’s Schools Week about a faith school’s sex segregation and the High Court ruling declaring this unlawful:
Ofsted were highly critical of the school in their report last summer, arguing that separating pupils who attend the same school was not in line with the values of British society nor prepared them for modern life.
The appeal had the backing of the Equality and Human Rights Commission.
Agreed. So how does this square with single sex schools? Surely the context of ‘who attend the same school’ is not a defining factor? Not if we extrapolate that boys and girls attend the same society?
