Birkbeck Primary School

Religious Education

It is our aim to provide a clear framework of shared spiritual and moral values both inside and outside of school.  We follow the 2021 Bexley Agreed Syllabus for RE, which incorporates study of the Christian faith as well as other main faiths.

Although the teaching of RE is compulsory, The Education Act allows parents with other faiths the right to withdraw their children from RE lessons and from assemblies.  Parents are asked to contact the Head Teacher in this regard and appropriate arrangements will be made to support the circumstances of each request.
