Charles Clarke and Linda Woodhead, A New Settlement Revised: Religion and Belief in Schools

This policy pamphlet, which updates an earlier one published by the same authors in 2015, examines religious education in the school curriculum, the act of collective worship and faith schools. It argues that the current legal relationship between religion, belief and schools is outdated in such a way that the law itself has become a barrier to schools’ ability to help their children understand their own situation and the world in which they are growing up. It calls for a reform of the law that undergirds the way religion is handled in schools and makes 16 detailed recommendations about the curriculum, collective worship and faith schools.
