Academies were introduced by Labour in 2000 and first opened their doors in 2002, but during Labour’s time in power the nature of the Academies changed. At first they were designed to replace existing failing schools but, by 2004, the expectation had widened to provide for entirely new schools where there was a demand for new places. From 2010, under the coalition government, two new types of Academy were introduced. While the original Academies were based on the idea of closing poor schools and replacing them by dramatically redesigned and restructured ones, the 2010 Academies Act allowed existing highly successful state-maintained schools to apply to become Academies as well. Further, while Labour had restricted Academy status to secondary schools, the Coalition extended it to primary and special schools. The result is that there has been a dramatic increase in the number and diversity of Academies. In addition to this, the 2010 Act introduced Free Schools, wherein groups of parents, teachers, or other sponsors can apply to start their own state-maintained, but officially ‘independent’, schools. These schools can either be completely new or the result of existing private schools applying to become state-maintained. The results of these changes remain under-researched. This book puts forward new research that examines the history and nature of Academies and Free Schools, the processes by which they have come into existence, and their effects in terms of social justice. The contributors do not all speak with one voice, but rather present a diversity of views on these important topics. Included in the collection are the results of research on pupil outcomes and socio-economic segregation; issues of identity and ethos in church academies; the problems of establishing free schools; the history of policy on Academies; and a comparison between Swedish independent schools and Academies and Free Schools. This book was originally published as a special issue of Research Papers in Education.
First, to be able to establish and successfully govern such schools an effective diocesan organisation was needed. Secondly for the organisation's work to prosper, the provision of generous state-aid was indispensable.

The history of the Sydney Diocesan Council over the period 1944 to 1991 demonstrates that the Sydney Anglican Church's capacity to maintain schools that charged moderate fees was inseparably linked to two major factors. First, to be able to establish and successfully govern such schools an effective diocesan organisation was needed. Secondly for the organisation's work to prosper, the provision of generous state-aid was indispensable. This thesis traces the history of this endeavour from 1788 to 1991.

This book examines the apparent paradox of a society where the majority do not take part in organized religion but support church schools, religious education and assemblies for their children. The book builds up a picture of contemporary Christianity as both puerilised and feminised and illustrates these trends through a longitudinal study of a group of children growing up in a Cornish town, 'Penvollard' and the changing influences of family, school and churches on their religiosity. Underlying their mothers’ support for religion in education is a child-centred view of Christianity as desirable for young children but naturally outgrown. What appeals to the non-churchgoing majority are the 'nice bits' of Christianity which are part of the magic of childhood. The involvement of the churches in the educational and social life of Penvollard is examined, drawing comparisons with the past and set in the context of changes in the role of the church schools and in religious education.

Anglican schools in the independent sector are proud of their traditions and their Christian foundation. All such schools will now be subject to a common inspection regime. This work aims to provide support and guidance for schools wishing to: prepare for inspection, review how their Christian foundation is reflected in their practice and develop their Christian character. It should also help those involved in the inspection process to deepen their understanding of the essential characteristics of an independent school within the Anglican tradition.

The nature and purpose of a Christian school, recent and current thinking on religious education, the curriculum, school chaplaincy and ethos, and community and parent relations are key concerns of voluntary schools today. The meeting of two very different histories and outlooks in joint Catholic-Anglican or Catholic-Protestant schools makes these concerns an acute and practical challenge, and throws light on them in a way which helps all involved in the debate, whether in joint schools, Catholic schools, Anglican schools or at national and government level.

The academic fields of religion and values have become the focus of renewed interest in contemporary thinking about human activity and its motivations. The Routledge International Handbook of Education, Religion and Values explores and expands upon a range of international research related to this revival. The book provides an authoritative overview of global issues in religion and values, surveying the state of the academic area in contributions covering a wide range of topics. It includes emerging, controversial, and cutting-edge contributions, as well as investigations into more established areas. International authorities Arthur and Lovat have brought together experts from across the world to examine the complexity of the field of study. The handbook is organised around four key topics, which focus on both the importance of religion and values as broad fields of human enquiry, as well as in their application to education, inter-agency work and cross-cultural endeavours: -The Conceptual World of Religion and Values -Religion and Values in Education -Religion and Values in Inter-agency Work -Religion and Values in Cross-cultural Work. This comprehensive reference work combines theoretical and empirical research of international significance, and will be valuable reading for students, researchers and academics in the field of education.
