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 is this idea important?

•    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.
