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.

Education is a right in this country. Every child has a right to be educated without fear or favour, learning knowledge and skills, discovering the world about them, and learning how to evaluate what they discover. Education needs to be facilitated without trying to inculcate any belief agenda which distorts the dispassionate objectivity of education. Children need to be able to question and challenge. Faith schools are fundamentally wrong because they work against these objectives. Because faith schools are part of the national, publicly funded education system, many parents have no option but to send their children to a faith school with which they fundamentally disagree. They should be abolished.

Sarah, from STOKE-ON-TRENT

At some stage within their school years, a child will be peer-pressured or cajoled to be discriminatory or unkind against a different race or faith. A child able to draw upon their own memories of shared friendships has the strongest defence possible. This defence is best-natured in a school whose pupils are selected to ensure no one faith is dominant and attendance at religious instruction is minimized and voluntary thereafter.
