Religious education is a rigorous and relevant subject that helps prepare young people for the modern, diverse world they are growing into, a world in which religious literacy has never been more important. It is in RE that pupils learn about the people around them, think about their own beliefs and ideas, encounter worldviews different to their own and have the opportunity to consider a wide range of philosophical, theological and ethical questions. RE is part of the basic curriculum, meaning it is a legal requirement for all schools, including Academies, community schools and schools of a religious character, to teach RE to all of their pupils, though parents do have a right of withdrawal. RE is not part of the National Curriculum, and is locally determined, meaning that it is a diverse and creative subject studied in different ways across the country.
