Gove: free schools 'can still be totally Jewish'

By Jessica Elgot, July 22, 2010

Jewish parents hoping to set up new schools under the coalition government's flagship education proposals may have to take pupils of different faiths - at the expense of Jewish pupils.

Empowering parents to set up free schools was a key pledge in the Conservative election campaign, but those schools must take 50 per cent of pupils without reference to religion.

The 50 per cent ceiling on faith admissions for new academies was introduced under Labour, but the Coalition government has decided not to lift it, so it will apply to new free schools as well.


Mill Hill eruv to be constructed 'within six months'

By Robyn Rosen, July 8, 2010

Construction of a Mill Hill eruv will begin "within six months" after the project was given the green light by Barnet Council.

On Tuesday, Barnet's planning committee voted in favour of the application for 24 poles which would link up with the existing Edgware and Golders Green eruvs. Councillors requested a wildlife survey at Sheepwash Pond, part of the eruv area, and that the colour of the poles be green, rather than black.

The council has received 400 letters in support of the project and 24 objections.

A Facebook group, Interested in a new Jewish Primary School in Mill Hill, attracted over 200 members in just three days.
