Scrap Collective Worship In Schools

That the law that states all schools must hold an act of collective worship each day, and replace it with sessions addressing moral and ethics.

Why does this idea 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.
