Welcome to our new website

 

Right to withdraw pupils from religious education and from relationships and sex education.
 
All maintained schools in England must teach RE. Parents and carers of children in maintained schools may lawfully withdraw their children from religious education and collective worship. As a Catholic school we are required to provide education and collective worship in accordance with the religious tenets of the Catholic faith but we fully support Article 9 of the European Convention on Human Rights which states:
Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion.
 
Section 405 of the Education Act 1996 enables parents to withdraw their children from sex education other than the sex education that is in the National Curriculum (such as the biological aspects of human growth and reproduction that are essential elements of National Curriculum Science).
 
If you are considering withdrawing your child from religious education or from relationships and sex education please contact the head teacher in the first instance in order to discuss your concerns. Requests to withdraw your child from all or parts of lessons must be made in writing to the head teacher.
