In Hope Sentamu Learning Trust schools, high quality and inclusive RE is provided for all pupils in all year groups
RE in our North Yorkshire schools without a religious character is taught in accordance with the local Agreed Syllabus for York and North Yorkshire.
We note the Human Right of parents to withdraw their children from RE. The school must comply with any request from a parent to withdraw their child and parents are not required to give their reasons for wanting to do so. We aim to provide an open curriculum which can be taught to all pupils, by all staff.
Teachers are asked to refer to the Principal any questions from parents about withdrawals. We ask that anyone wishing to withdraw their child would discuss this with the Principal before making this decision. Requests for full or partial withdrawal from RE should be made in writing to the Principal and a record will be kept of them.
