← Church schools shun poorest pupils

What was missing here was some indication of how far out of line these schools are. If their typical mismatch is 5%, that might be reasonable. But if it is 30%, then we have a problem. 'Twill be interesting to see what response they make, at the local school level.

I can't find data on the "typical mismatch" but looking at their downloadable data, I found that the average % of pupils eligible for free school meals is as follows:

Church of England Primary Schools = 13.1%

Roman Catholic Primary Schools = 16.3%

No Religion Primary Schools = 21.5%

Church of England Secondary Schools = 12%

Roman Catholic Secondary Schools = 14%

No Religion Secondary Schools = 15.6%
