News and opinion

SUNDAY 2nd DECEMBER 6.30pm
Dr Sara Thompson (who will be giving a talk at Secular Hall on Sunday 5th December 6-30pm) has initiated a legal challenge against the Catholic Diocese which 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/ and www.secularism.org.uk/opinion/2021/10/why-is-the-catholic-church-allowed-to-hinder-secondary-school-choice

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.
