Ingoldmells Academy follows the Lincolnshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education 2018-2023
1.0 Legal Requirements
The teaching of RE follows the locally agreed syllabus (AS), determined by the Local
Authority (LA). The AS must be consistent with Section 375(3) of the Education Act
1996, School Standards and Framework Act, 1998, Schedule 19 which states that it
must ‘reflect that the religious traditions of Great Britain are in the main Christian,
whilst taking account of the teaching and practices of the other principal religions
represented in Great Britain.
RE should be provided for all registered pupils except for those withdrawn at the
request of parents/carers.
1.1 Right of Withdrawal - Parents/Carers
Parents/carers may withdraw their children from all or part of the RE curriculum.
They do not have to provide a reason for this and the school will comply with the
request. It has a responsibility to supervise any pupils who are withdrawn from RE
but is not required to provide additional teaching or incur extra costs. If
parents/carers wish their child to receive an alternative programme of RE it is their
responsibility to arrange this.
To support planning, Ingoldmells Academy asks that; If you do wish to withdraw your child from all or part of our Religious Education Curriculum please forward a letter to The Principal and alternative arrangements will be made for your child for the duration of the RE lesson.
