We're working hard to stop the spread of faith schools and oppose the Government's deeply damaging proposal to increase segregation and discrimination in new faith schools.

But we need your help: Write to your MP today to help us oppose this new wave of faith schools.

The Government should be doing absolutely everything it can to promote integration. The dangers of religious divisions were seen just last weekend when up to 100 Sikh men burst into a gurdwara to disrupt an interfaith marriage – one of many similar attacks in recent years.

We need a cohesive society. We know faith schools are a big part of the problem. But the Government is acting in a deeply counter-productive way. If you're concerned about this, and want to help, contact your MP, and join the National Secular Society today.
