Cavehill Primary School

Working Together Towards Excellence

Religious Education (RE)


The school provides Religious Education in accordance with the agreed syllabus developed by the main churches. This is provided in the form of assembly and/or class periods. Parents may exercise their rights of conscience to withdraw children from this by informing the Principal and signing a written declaration to this effect.

We will endeavour to provide alternative accommodation for children whose parents have requested that they be withdrawn from assembly. Pupils will remain with their class but be given other work to do during RE lessons. We have a number of Church visitors and organisations who come into school throughout the year to support the delivery of this subject area.
