This article considers the extent to which the right to freedom of religion of teachers is adequately protected in English schools under the Employment Equality (Religion and Belief) Regulations 2003 and the Schools Standards and Framework Act 1998. It first considers the context in which religious schools operate, then considers the legislation that protects the religious freedom of teaching and non-teaching staff in state schools. It concludes that the legislative framework provides inadequate protection for the right of teachers to enjoy freedom of religion and belief, and, further, that the protection may not comply with EU standards protecting employees against religious discrimination.
