The Sutton Trust: Mobility Manifesto
Sutton Trust
Ahead of the party conference season, the Sutton Trust is urging fairer admissions to comprehensives, grammar schools and independent schools as part of a 10-point Mobility Manifesto setting out ten practical policy steps designed to put social mobility at the heart of the 2015 election campaign. The manifesto urges greater use of ballots (random allocation) or ability banding for fairer admissions, particularly in urban schools that are oversubscribed. It also says that all schools should be encouraged to use the powers in the revised admissions code to give priority to pupils entitled to the pupil premium. The manifesto also calls for a significant increase in good quality apprenticeships for young people, ring-fenced funding to support the most able state school pupils and pupil premium cash incentives for schools to narrow the attainment gap between their richest and poorest students.
