Campaign Locally

We want every faith school proposal to face robust opposition at every level and make every effort to support secular inclusive alternatives. We always seek to work with local supporters and build a broad positive coalition.

Here are some of the campaigns we and our supporters are currently working on. Please keep scrolling down for more information on how you can take action locally.


Other local campaigning

Scroll down for more information on how you can Help us show support for No More Faith Schools across the country.

  • Subscribing to our newsletter and sharing your postcode really helps us organise local campaigns.
  • In addition to your local MP, please ask your local representatives what they are doing to support inclusive education and oppose the expansion of faith schools in your area.
  • Look out for plans to open new faith schools in your area, or for religious groups taking over non-faith schools.

Education is a devolved issue, so we have template letters for MSs, MLAs and MSPs. It can still be worth writing to your MP, even on devolved issues, as the discrimination and segregation wrought by faith schools is still something they can take an interest in.

While the main reasons for opposing faith schools have to be associated with their effects on the lives of young people and on their divisive effects on social cohesion, there is another reason: the damage done to teachers. As a former teacher of mathematics, on two occasions I was foolish enough to apply for positions in faith schools. On both occasions the interview process seemed to be progressing well- until the interview with the Chair of Governors, on both occasions an ordained minister. I was naive enough to b, believing that my (non) religious beliefs were irrelevant to maths teaching. The subsequent frostiness.

I was brought up in Catholic schools in Glasgow in the 60’s and 70’s, and just down the road were the ‘Protestant’ schools, as we were taught. All throughout my schooling there were fights between us and we all thought that was just the way it was everywhere! Well, it was in Scotland. And still is, from what I can see. This bigotry was ingrained in us. It wasn't until I left school that I saw how poisonous faith schools were. The state should have nothing to do with promoting such divisions in our society. Faith schools must go!
