Grammar school dissident Graham Brady has posed a PQ:
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills, what percentage of pupils attending the 200 highest performing comprehensive schools by unweighted attainment of five or more A*-C grade GCSEs, are in receipt of free school meals.If he has actually read the Willets speech, which upset him so, he would already know the answer. Willetts said:
“…our best performing non-selective comprehensive schools have a much lower percentage of children on free school meals than in their area. In the areas where the best 200 comprehensives are located 12% of children are on free school meals. In those schools themselves it is 6%.”Or is it that he doesn’t believe Willets’ figures?
