A nurturing environment, inspiring achievement
All children in England between the ages of 5 and 16 are entitled to a free place at a state school.
State schools receive funding through their local authority or directly from the government. The most common ones are:
community schools, which are sometimes called local authority maintained schools - they are not influenced by business or religious groups and follow the national curriculum
foundation schools and voluntary schools, which are funded by the local authority but have more freedom to change the way they do things - sometimes they are supported by representatives from religious groups
academies and free schools, which are run by not-for-profit academy trusts, are independent from the local authority - they have more freedom to change how they run things and can follow a different curriculum
All state-funded schools, whether they are academies or council-run schools, get their funding from the Government.
