Swindon Academy respects the right of parents to withdraw their child from RE lessons.
RE lessons at Swindon Academy will teach students about Christianity and other principal world religions and faiths. While the Christian faith is the majority culture with historical roots in Britain, Swindon Academy also acknowledges our multi-faith and multi-cultural society. Swindon Academy honours and respects the position of those of other faiths and traditions and welcomes the contribution that they bring. In this way Swindon Academy will ensure that RE lessons are fully inclusive. Nevertheless, Swindon Academy is required to respect parental rights of withdrawal as outlined in the Education Act 1993.
