Next week we are looking at a school that is affiliated to the Church. It ticks all the right boxes bar us not being religious. We are not athesists just not religious.

Is this a problem?

Could non-religious people at religious schools reassure us that it is fine, and the school don't have a problem?

We have no problem with our dc attending all worship, and occassions if they are allowed to partake, I don't know if you have to be actively worshiping to attend the services.

Any advice?

They are required to embrace all religions and non religions too. If its a C of E read through their SIAS report , if its Catholic they will have a section 48 report.
Some church schools have more non christian children than christian whilst some are heavily christian. Our church school has an assembly most mornings but it is often non religious. A prayer at lunch and end of day.
You can also opt of out certain religious activities if you wish.
Anyone is welcome to attend the services whatever your faith. It's a school first and the educational aspect comes first.
