A state-funded faith school in north London will be investigated after the National Secular Society raised concerns about potential racial discrimination in its admissions.

The NSS, which coordinates the No More Faith Schools campaign, contacted the Office of the Schools Adjudicator (OSA) in May regarding a "school application form" on the admissions page of Lubavitch Girls Primary School, an Orthodox Jewish school.

The OSA, which clarifies the legal position on school admissions policies, has now told the NSS it will consider whether the school's admissions arrangements conform with requirements.
