Religion is am exam subject in Noahs school so he doesn't even have the option to sit in class and not take part. However we were told they were using Religion class to learn about all religions and for open discussions and personal development so I don't see this as a bad thing.

Mind you there are omly a few pages in the Religion book about different religions. We'll see how this turns out. However, I do believe to start with its not a subject that should be forced on anyone.

Well said Clare🙏
