Welsh Government avoids decision on religious worship in schools

Recently the Welsh Government announced that it was not going to amend the law on compulsory collective worship in schools during this session.

The current law requires all schools to carry out a daily act of collective worship that is “broadly Christian” in character. Of course, many don’t. This law sends mixed message about which beliefs matter, forces Christianity of children through assemblies and challenges freedom of belief.
