Controversial faith, independent, and grammar school policies all expected to be absent from Queen's Speech

Controversial plans to allow new faith schools to select all of their pupils on the basis of their faith have been abandoned and will be absent from Wednesday's Queen’s Speech, it has been reported today.

It will join a growing list of high-profile Conservative education policies that have become casualties Theresa May's disappointing general election result and loss of majority so any plans that require new legislation are vulnerable to a rebellion.

The plans to lift the faith cap were set out in the government’s Schools that Work for Everyone Green Paper, published in September 2016.

The document also set out proposals to force independent schools to do more to help underprivileged children, which the Mail on Sunday also reports will be ditched.

Plans to create new grammar schools, also set out in the Green Paper, and ending free school lunches for all infants, are expected to be the most high profile victims of the new parliamentary arithmetic.

The Queen’s Speech, which sets out the government’s agenda for the course of the next parliamentary session, was originally due to take place tomorrow, but was moved to Wednesday as the Conservatives continued negotiations with the DUP.
