Over the last three years we've resisted government plans to introduce more religiously selective state schools in England.
Last year our lobbying helped to convince ministers not to lift a 50% cap on faith based admissions to new academies. Then they proposed a wave of 14 new faith
schools which could potentially select all their children on the basis of their families' religious orientation.
We've opposed these plans locally and nationally. Now just one has been taken forward: a proposed selective Catholic school in Peterborough in Cambridgeshire. And
our No More Faith Schools campaign is working to convince the local council not to accept this exclusive faith school.
The campaign is exposing the harm which faith schools cause and rallying proponents of inclusive, secular education to push for an end to religious power over our
children's schooling. If this sounds worthwhile, please consider getting involved in the campaign – or joining or donating to
the NSS. Thank you.
