Religion and ethics

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.

Religious education

In the state system, the principal can provide in the school timetable for religious education in accordance with the agreed syllabus for those classes for which accredited instructors are available. Students who are not to be involved in these classes must have a letter written to the principal stating the case.
