Help schools with intakes from one predominant racial, cultural or religious background broaden their teaching
Last updated: 12:33pm 12 July 2018
Conservative Party Manifesto 2017, p.55We will work with schools to make sure that those with intakes from one predominant racial, cultural or religious background teach their students about pluralistic, British values and help them to get to know people with different ways of life.
The government is working on preparing a strategy for this purpose, called the Integrated Communities Strategy, which will be supported with £50 million of government money. They are currently carrying out a consultation on its proposed plans and this is scheduled to finish on the 5th June 2018.
With the consultation ongoing, the plans have yet to come into effect. This policy is therefore considered as ‘in progress’.
