We’re waiting for a new Petitions Committee

Petitions had to stop because of the recent general election. Once a new Petitions Committee is set up by the House of Commons, petitions will start again.

Closed petition Introduce law to require schools to allow prayer practices

We feel that prayer is vital for some students in school and denying it is discrimination. We encourage Parliament to protect students' rights and religious freedom to pray in school in law.

More details

Prayer, a cornerstone for many students, can offer comfort and spiritual guidance. By ensuring all students can pray freely, we could create a more inclusive environment. We think that schools who do not allow prayer create gaps in students' religious rights. Clear legislation could provide schools with a framework to accommodate prayer practices while respecting everyone's rights. Parliament must act for inclusive schools and protect students' rights.
