Clarification on c

 

 

Schools can prioritise the teaching of religion and faith over non-religious world views.

 

The Association of Christian Teachers is delighted by the intervention and clarification on Religious Education made by the Education Secretary Rt Hon Nicky Morgan MP today.

 

It is good to know that schools do not need to feel threatened by atheist and humanist campaigners trying to impose the teaching of world views in the RE Curriculum.

 

By the following statement Nicky Morgan has made very clear where schools stand : “I am clear that both faith and non-faith schools are completely entitled to prioritise the teaching of religion and faith over non-religious world views if they wish.”

 

The Association of Christian Teachers welcomes this clarity – whilst world views have a place to be understood and discussed elsewhere in the school curriculum they have no place in Religious Studies/Religious Education.
