Special Religious Education

Special Religious Education

Special religious education (SRE) is the beliefs and practices of an approved religious persuasion delivered by authorised representatives of that persuasion. It is the distinctive religious tenets and beliefs of the home and family, provided by the churches and other religious groups for children of parents expressing the desire that they receive such teaching. SRE is an integral part of school activities, taking place during school hours and under the jurisdiction of the school.


At Evans High School including the Intensive English Centre (IEC), teachers and volunteers of approved SRE providers will deliver special religious education every term. Each Year group will attend the seminar for a period only. 

​Students not attending SRE

In the allocated time/s set aside for SRE, students not attending will be supervised by a member of the school staff with supervised alternative meaningful activities. This could include reading, private study or completing homework. Students are not to be participating in lessons in the school curriculum or other extra-curricular activities during this time.
