remove the requirement for collective worship in state schools

The legal framework for collective worship can be found in the Education Act 1996 Part V, Chapter III, sections 385-388. Community schools must provide a pattern of worship that is 'wholly or mainly of a broadly Christian character' – Education Act 1996 Part V, Chapter 3, section 386 (2).

 

This should be removed.

Scrap law that says schools must hold collective worship

all schools must hold a collective worship daily, such as in assemblies. usually this is chritian, surely assemblies about moral issues would be more appropriate and inclusive.
