NDM6094 - United Kingdom Independence Party Debate

To propose that the National Assembly for Wales:

1. Acknowledges the important role played by grammar schools in promoting social mobility and giving children from poorer backgrounds access to a first class education.

2. Notes that a reduction in social mobility has gone hand in hand with a cut in grammar school places.

3. Believes in diversity in secondary education, which gives children the right to a grammar school education if parents so desire, and supports enhanced status for technical and vocational education and the re-introduction of grammar schools in Wales to produce an educational system which provides the best opportunities for children of all abilities.
