P-04-388 Protect collective worship as a legal requirement
We, the undersigned, call upon the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to protect collective worship as a legal requirement for schools in Wales.
Additional information: Collective worship is currently required by law in every school in Wales and; provides opportunities for children and young people to explore spirituality and to reflect on life issues; promotes the corporate wellbeing of schools, individual flourishing and, through the participation of visiting speakers from the local community, social cohesion; reinforces positive attitudes; gives children and young people an awareness and understanding of wider world views; improves religious literacy.
