Asking children to attend Christian assemblies undermines their human rights, according to a United Nations committee.

A highly controversial new report by the U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child expresses “concern” that pupils in the U.K. are legally required to take part in a daily act of collective worship, which is “wholly or mainly of a broadly Christian character.”

Conservative MP David Burrowes described the criticism as “ludicrous” and said the government can “respectfully put those kinds of reports in the bin where they belong.”


The committee recommended that the government “repeal legal provisions for compulsory attendance at collective worship.” Its recommendations are not legally binding.
