The National Secular Society has called on Liverpool City Council to consider the impact of discriminatory admissions policies in faith schools as it reviews its policies towards school admissions.

Last week the council set up a panel to consider how rules on admissions disadvantage children from ethnic and religious minority backgrounds.

Now the NSS, which coordinates the No More Faith Schools campaign, has written to the council's cabinet member for education over the issue.

It's welcomed the review and recommended steps which the council could take to improve access to inclusive schools.
