School place planning - The influence of school place planning on school standards and social inclusion

This report considers two questions: can a local authority’s management of school places help to improve standards in schools and promote social inclusion and, if so, how? The report has two main sections:

  • The first considers ways in which local authorities can work more effectively within the whole council and more widely with schools and other admission authorities, particularly in terms of forging partnerships within the education department (or its equivalent);
  • The second section looks more closely at how authorities are tackling particularly difficult issues, for example the polarisation between popular and unpopular schools, polarisation on racial and religious grounds and the mobility of pupils.
