Right of withdrawal
Children’s families and faith communities have the right to encourage religious nurture of children, fostering their faith. It is the responsibility of the school to provide Religious Education for all its children.
Parents have the right to withdraw their children either partly or wholly from RE. In addition, teachers have the right not to teach the subject. Our approach to RE, however, has been constructed in the hope that parents and teachers will rarely, if ever, wish to exercise their right of withdrawal.
Those parents who wish to withdraw their child from RE lessons should inform the Headteacher in writing at their earliest convenience.
