Judicial Review of RSE denied by the Courts

Unfortunately the Court of Appeal (CoA) has refused permission for us to appeal against the refusal of the High Court to grant permission to apply for judicial review regarding RSE. They have refused permission on the grounds that the claim was brought ‘out of time’.

The judge asserted that the time for bringing challenges to legislation runs from when it is made, not when it comes into force, whereas other CoA decisions suggest that time starts when the legislation comes into force. Were that the case, we would have been on time. We are reviewing next steps.

Court of Appeal is the next step…

The Judge considered that all our claims on parental rights are arguable. However, we have not yet been given permission to go to a full hearing because the judge agreed with the government that there was too much delay in bringing the case. 

This is a surreal situation because prior to launching our case the government claimed that it was premature and we needed to wait until we were directly affected before bringing it! We filed the case the very same day the Regulations and Guidance came into force and on the basis of multiple established Court of Appeal authorities we are confident that we were entirely in time to bring this action. 

We filed our appeal to the Court of Appeal on Monday 14th December. We have 14 days from that date to submit a Skeleton argument to the Court, which will be done. Given the Christmas Holidays, the team believe the Lord Justice of Appeal will likely make the decision in January. 

On we go!

SRE Islamic asks: What price would you pay to protect the values of your children?

Yusuf Patel from SREIslamic explains their involvement in the Let Kids Be Kids Coalition and why they believe this case is so important for families…

It wasn’t enough for the government to impose statutory Relationships Education (RE) and Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) in schools, it also downgraded our right to withdraw. This has always been a trump card parents can use when schools decide to teach too much too soon.
