Our children receive Religious Education, as stated in the National Curriculum in England: Framework Document DfE September 2013 (p4)
'Every state-funded school must offer a curriculum that is balanced and broadly based, and which:
- Promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils: and
- Prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences in later life.'
At Fairfield Primary School we teach children Halton's Agreed Syllabus which has adopted the Lancashire's Agreed Syllabus.
The school teaches open minded religious education, and is inclusive: all pupils develop their own beliefs and values through RE. So any parent considering exercising the right of withdrawal and removing their child from the subject is invited to make an appointment with staff to discuss the approach we take to RE.
The school does not support selective withdrawals from RE lessons.
