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.

SEE is provided by Primary Ethics. SEE classes do not take place at Uralla Central School. For more information about SEE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit the Primary Ethics website https://primaryethics.com.au.
Given the small numbers of students that participate in SRE, during the time that SRE/SEE classes are being held, students not participating will remain in their classrooms with their class teachers and will participate in meaningful activities – such as reading, private study, revision or completing homework.
Students participating in SRE will leave their normal classes and be located in a separate space and be supervised by representatives of the respective authorised provider.
