Legacy of segregation

Sir - Recently I spoke with a university student who was conducting primary school training at a local school as required by the regulations of their Masters degree.
The issue of religion entered our conversation. I enquired as to what is the protocol for different religious groups within the classroom when the Catholic religion classes commenced.
To my dismay, I was informed the small number of students with different practices were segregated towards the back of the class.
