From faith schools to compulsory worship, education is where a lack of secularism impinges most on the lives of UK citizens.
We campaign for an education system which equally respects the rights and freedoms of pupils, families and teachers of all backgrounds.
We don't think schools should be organised around religious identities or used to promote religious worldviews. A third of English and Welsh schools are faith schools. Scottish and Northern Irish schools are still divided on sectarian lines, and religion is still deeply ingrained across the UK's education systems. Academies and 'free schools' have only increased the opportunities for religious groups to gain control of schools.
Our secular approach to education would ensure all publicly funded schools are equally welcoming to all children and their families.
