During the last two decades, children's right to physical and emotional well-being has become an important item on the childhood agenda, supported by many national and international laws. It is believed that despite the total ban on corporal punishment of children, in schools in the UK, the current legal standards for safeguarding children do not correspond with the realities of children lives. This is particularly the case when the maltreatment of children is perpetrated by parents or by institutions that are rarely exposed to the government's scrutiny. In an attempt to explore children's agency at UK mosque schools, this article, particularly looked at children's experiences of maltreatment in a religious setting. It concludes that while the religious character of mosque schools provides these schools with some level of insulation from allegations of the maltreatment of children, the children themselves responded by resorting to different sources of authority and developing different strategies to resist adults' control and to challenge adult-centred environments.
