religious education

The current compulsory curriculum as published on the Department Of Education Northern Ireland’s web site states that Christianity must be taught to primary school children.

I feel this does not reflect the views of the majority of people in Northern Ireland who choose not to support Christianity or indeed any religion.

My petition calls for this compulsory curriculum to be changed to include an overview of all religions rather than focusing exclusively on Christianity.

This e-petition has been rejected with the following reason given:

  • correspondence on personal issues

E-petitions cannot be used for freedom of information requests.

You can't sign this petition because it wasn't accepted for publication. But you can still give your opinion on it here at!
