Religious Education is a compulsory subject for all state-funded schools but not part of the National Curriculum. There are however national guidelines and there should by law be a Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education (SACRE) in each Local Education Authority which consults and draws up a syllabus for schools in that area to follow. Due to copyright reasons we cannot reproduce the syllabus but the latest SACRE committee report can be found below:
As we are not a faith school we do not set out to teach children to believe in any particular faith but teach them the basic elements of Christianity, as the major faith of this country, and of other major world religions. Parents may request for their children to be withdrawn from RE lessons and assemblies by writing to the principal. Our RE coordinator is Miss Warren.
