Right of withdrawal

Parents have a legal right to withdraw their children from Religious Education lessons and Collective Worship, but as RE is central to the life and identity of Kingsholm Primary School we ask parents to write to the Headteacher to express their wish and to give reasons they might have for doing this.  A meeting will then be held where they can discuss their wish with the Headteacher.


It is important to acknowledge that RE is very different now – open, broad, exploring a range of religious and non-religious worldviews, which is something that will be discussed in more detail at a meeting.
