Religious Education
Parental Right to Withdraw
As a maintained school, parents have the right to request that their child is partly or wholly withdrawn from:
  • receiving RE given in the school in accordance with the school's basic curriculum
  • attendance at religious worship in school
The right of parents to withdraw their children from religious education (RE) lessons is set out in section 71(1) of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998, in paragraph 1, and the school MUST grant such requests.
