Managing the Right of Withdrawal from RE

It includes helpful sections on legislation, minimising situations that might lead to requests for withdrawal, suggestions for managing requests for withdrawal, case studies, the views of different religious and non-religious groups on religious education, consideration of whether requests are based on reasons of prejudice and requests for withdrawal from visiting places of worship.

The document is produced bilingually in English and in Welsh.

Managing the Right of Withdrawal from RE

£8.99

This is an excellent publication that is a must for every school leader and adviser in the country.


It draws on the advice and insight of a range of faith communities and non-religious organisations as well as experts from across Wales and England.


What is particularly effective is the design and layout of the book. It is all colour coded and divided in to clear short chapters making it a quick reference guide. All that schools and advisers need to know is laid out in an accessible way.


I would thoroughly recommend this publication to advisers working in all types of schools.  This is an invaluable aid that has the potential to minimise the complications and concerns the right of withdrawal brings.

Managing the Right of Withdrawal from RE


This document provides guidance for schools that receive requests from parents for a pupil to be wholly or partly withdrawn from attending any religious education at the school.  

Parents who may be considering whether to withdraw their child(ren) from religious education should also find this document useful in informing their decision.


Through open and honest discussion about the aims of the curriculum, the content of schemes of work and the learning intentions of individual class teachers, often parents who might have raised concerns will be reassured and appreciate the value of objective religious education for their child(ren) and support their inclusion in lessons.
