Religion and Ethics

stanmore public school religion and primary ethics

NSW schools offer special religious education and special education in ethics. Approved providers deliver these, where available.

At Stanmore Public School we offer both Special Ethics Education and Special Religious Education. If you wish your child to participate in either of these programs they need written permission from a parent of guardian. Both SRE and SEE are taught by authorised teachers with government approved curriculum. For more information, visit Religion and ethics →

At Stanmore Public School, SRE and SEE is delivered on Monday, from 1:40 – 2:20 for K-2 students and from 2:20 – 3:00 for Years 3-6 students.

On enrolment parents/carers will be given the SRE and SEE participation letter to complete and return. After the initial enrolment, notification of changes to a child’s enrolment in SRE/SEE should be made through the Changes to Scripture/Ethics form on our website.

The following SRE classes are offered at Stanmore Public School:

  • Catholic
  • Greek Orthodox
  • Islamic
  • Jewish
  • Protestant

SEE is provided by Primary Ethics. For more information about SEE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit the Primary Ethics website →

During the time that SRE/SEE classes are being held, students not attending will be located in a separate space and will participate in meaningful activities including reading, private study, completing homework and social skills or developmental play for younger children.
