Schools win right to turn away middle class children
"As part of a sweeping reform of national admissions rules to be unveiled today, hundreds of academies and free schools will be allowed to select pupils based on family income for the first time.
"They will be allowed to discriminate in favour of children who are eligible for free school meals those whose parents earn £16,000 or less in an attempt to close the gap between rich and poor.
"The move is designed to give the most disadvantaged children access to the most sought-after schools and stop them being edged out by richer families who buy properties near the best secondaries to secure places."
