Religion and ethics

NSW public schools offer special religious education and special education in ethics, delivered by approved providers wherever available.

During enrolment, you can choose a special religious education option for your child from the school’s available approved providers. You can withdraw your child from special religious education by selecting alternative meaningful activities, or special education in ethics if it’s available.

You can update your preference by writing to the school or through the online form available at participating schools.
Visit the department’s website for more information about religion and ethics.

Anglican SRE is provided by Anglican teachers who are authorised and trained by the Anglican Diocese of Sydney who are an apporoved SRE provider. Teachers provide education in Christian beliefs and practices for children in Kindergarten to Year 6. The SRE curriculum is "Connect"  teaching from Cycle C in 2019, produced by Christian Education Publications.
