News and opinion

**Unfortunately the advertised talk ‘Global Leicester: the Dryad Craftwork collection at Leicester Museum and Art Gallery’ by Maria Chiara Scuderi has been cancelled as the speaker has Covid. We hope to rearrange at a later date.
It has not been possible to arrange an alternative speaker at such short notice but instead we will be holding a ‘Headstrong meeting’ for anyone interested. Come along and bring any topic of your choosing for discussion in an informal setting.

5 October 2021 - Catholic Diocese denying parents meaningful choice of secondary schools in Leicester.
The Catholic Diocese objects to Saint Thomas More School (a Catholic primary school) being listed as a feeder school for any non-Catholic Secondary School. This restricts choice and means that children attending Saint Thomas More are being discriminated against in relation to other children in the area. Parental choice has been removed and the Diocese is making it, in practice, impossible for children attending this Catholic primary school - where a significant proportion of families is not Catholic - to have the same choices of secular community schools as other children in the area. For more information see https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/stop-religious-discrimination/ .

6 August 2021 - Children in care excluded from 76% of Catholic and all Jewish secondaries through admissions policies -Religious state schools routinely de-prioritise children who are or were in care in their admissions policies, by making use of their powers to select pupils on faith grounds. That’s the finding of a new report from Humanists UK.
