    17 September 10

    Author: Alison Mawhinney, Ulrike Niens, Norman Richardson and Yuko Chiba

    This is the final report from the eponymous Phase 2 Small Grant led by Dr Alison Mawhinney at Queen's University Belfast investigating young people from minority belief backgrounds' experiences of opting out of Religious Education and collective worship at schools in Northern Ireland. The project has led to many significant findings and recommendations including that "the Education authorities (at national, regional or local government level as appropriate) should issue information to clarify that the right to opt out of religious education and collective worship is applicable to all schools. Standardised guidelines should be issued on appropriate practice for schools with regard to the notification of the right to opt out and the procedures to accommodate those wishing to exercise the right."
