Welcome to your May 2021 update from the No
More Faith Schools campaign. Our main story this month comes from Kingston Upon Thames, where the council is consulting on proposals for a new discriminatory C
of E faith school.
With local elections taking place across the UK today, it's a reminder of the important role local government can play in supporting alternatives to new and
existing faith schools.
If you live in Scotland or Wales, you may soon have new members of the Scottish parliament, or members of the Senedd. You can write to your MSPs and MSs using
letter, and ask them to support an inclusive community ethos education system free from faith schools.
In other news, the National Secular Society, which coordinates our campaign, has launched a new report into religious inspections of faith schools. Also in this mailing is my article from today
exploring why progress towards inclusive integrated education in Northern Ireland is still too slow
I've been continuing my series of
talks across the country, speaking to local groups about how they can challenge faith schools and push for inclusive alternatives. I hope that you
can make it to one of our many online events, and that we'll have some in person events soon.
