The paper comments on the decision of the High Court in R (Playfoot) v Governing Body of Millais School (the ‘purity ring’ case), where the court was asked to rule on whether the school’s governing body’s decision not to allow Lydia Playfoot to wear a silver ring as a symbol of her commitment to celibacy until marriage, constituted a violation of Arts 9 (freedom of thought, conscience and religion) and 14 (prohibition of discrimination) of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms 1950.
