Consultation banner

Consultation on the proposals for a curriculum in Education about Religions and Beliefs (ERB) and Ethics took place from 3rd November 2015 to 31st March 2016.

To ensure the consultation was as far reaching and inclusive as possible, a number of formats were used such as online questionnaires, written submissions, discussion groups, school case-studies, and meetings with education partners and interest groups. The consultation was successful in gathering the views of parents, children, teachers, interest groups and members of the general public.  

For a summary of the consultation process you can download the Key Findings and Next Steps.
