National RE Curriculum

27 Nov. 2015

On Thursday 26th November the British Humanist Association won a notable victory in the High Court when the Education Secretary was adjudged to have acted unlawfully in excluding non-religious beliefs from the RE element of the national curriculum. The BHA had appealed against this exclusion and it is not clear whether the government intends appealing against this judgement, but it is very encouraging that the first legal challenge to the government on this topic has been successful.
