"I am angry with what I view as the permitted brainwashing of children within our education system. Myself and my wife joined the NSS to help protect children from adults with religious and faith based agendas."

A Parent, whose school is pushing an increasing religious ethos

"Thank you for all of your help. I had never heard of your organisation before, I bet there are many many families feeling like this with no idea how to broach it with the schools or where they stand legally. You do a great job in empowering people to have the confidence and knowledge to stand up for their beliefs."

Mike, Petersfield

I am opposed to faith based schools on principle. The government promotes tribalism, the single greatest threat to our future. Many other threats can be solved if we work together and not against each other.
