Your monthly campaign update



Our national petition against faith schools has been central to the campaign since its launch. Thousands like you have shared your comments, stories and experiences.

The petition will close to new signatures at 17.00 on Thursday 3 December. That means we have just a month to go to ensure we can deliver the strongest possible message to the government. The time has come to move beyond faith schools and build an inclusive community school system instead.

If you haven't signed the petition, please sign it now. If you haven't shared the petition on social media, please share it now.

The end of this petition marks the start of a new stage in our campaign. We'll be increasingly focussed on local issues and giving supporters like you the tools to take the message out there. We'll be building a movement for inclusive secular education, and we want you to be a part of it.

Best wishes,

Alastair Lichten
NMFS campaign coordinator
