Protecting parents’ rights

The Curriculum and Assessment (Wales) Bill currently progressing through the Senedd will have a detrimental impact on Catholic schools and Catholic families across Wales. This Bill seeks to end the rights of parents to withdraw their children from Relationship and Sex Education and Religious Education. This is a vital right for parents, especially Catholic parents who can’t send their children to a Catholic school, as it ensures these sensitive subjects can be delivered in line with Church teaching.

We are asking that people write to their Members of the Senedd to ask them to halt these changes. If you visit the website link below it will produce a template letter for your MSs. All you need to do is type in your name, address and email and click submit.

We need MSs to know how serious an issue this is for the Catholic community, so please take part in this campaign and share this with friends and family.
