Faith Schools: Abolish or More Effectively Regulate

Additional Information

Faith schools are unnecessary, potentially divisive and a risk to the fabric of British society.

At their best, they only perform a function that should be the aim of all schools- to provide a good, well-rounded education for children and young people.

This petition calls on the Govt. to consider implementing the following:

1. The banning of all faith schools, and a return to socially and religiously integrated education.

2. In the meantime, the creation of a new inspectorate to monitor and regulate faith schools to ensure that the curriculum is properly adhered-to and that divisiveness is not promoted.

3. A recognition that education is a secular matter, and that religion should be left out of the classroom - with the exception of religious education lessons that promote acceptance, tolerance and debate.
