NSW schools offer special religious education and special education in ethics. Approved providers deliver these, where available.
Write to the school if you wish to withdraw your child from special religious education, sometimes known as scripture. Special education in ethics is an option for your primary-age child if you withdraw them from special religious education. For more information, visit Religion and ethics.
On enrolment parents/carers will be given the Special Religious Education (SRE) and Special Education in Ethics (SEE) participation letter to complete and return. After the initial enrolment, notification of changes to a child’s enrolment in SRE/SEE should be given to the school office, in writing.
