Compulsory collective worship

1 Comment 12th July 2010

End compulsory collective worship in state schools.

Why does this matter?

  • It forces young people to pray or worship in other ways, regardless of their personal beliefs
  • It does not respect children’s and young people’s rights to freedom of religion or belief
  • It does not recognise the plurality of beliefs in the UK
  • The system whereby you can opt your child out of religious worship is deeply flawed in theory and practice
  • Under 16s can’t opt-themselves out without their parents’ permission
  • Inclusive assemblies are a better alternative and contribute more to well being and development.
