Religious education in schools celebrates the diversity of religious and human experience.

Religious education must be taught to all registered pupils in maintained schools, including those in the sixth form, except to those withdrawn by their parents. This requirement does not apply to nursery classes in maintained schools.

Religious education is a component of the basic curriculum, to be taught alongside the National Curriculum in all maintained schools, other than voluntary aided schools with a religious character, it must be taught according to a locally agreed syllabus.
