All primary schools have half an hour a day set aside for the patron’s programme. In religious-run schools, religious instruction is taught at this time. In Educate Together schools such as ours, the Learn Together Ethical Education Curriculum is taught. It includes learning about morality and spirituality; equality and justice; belief systems and an ethical approach to the environment.
Learn Together teaches students about different belief systems as well as atheism, agnosticism and humanism, without promoting any one worldview over another.
Teachers, parents and students can access downloadable lessons and other resources for Ethical Education curriculum from the online resource bank of the Educate Together website:
