R.E. AT PATCHAM HOUSE

R.E. at Patcham House is delivered though assemblies, and group work within tutor times.  

Parents have the statutory right under Section 71 of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 to withdraw their children from RE lessons and acts of Collective Worship at all maintained schools (Patcham House is a maintained school).. Parents are not obliged to give a reason for requesting withdrawal.

Before exercising your right of withdrawal we would recommend discussing your concerns with the Head Teacher.

Requests for withdrawals are best made in writing, eg using the text below:

'As parent/carer of [Child's name] I formally request that he/she is withdrawn from worship/RE of any kind in future, without any detriment.'
