Education about Religions and Beliefs (ERB) and Ethics

This section provides details of the development of a curriculum in Education about Religions and Beliefs (ERB) and Ethics.

An important part of a child's education involves learning about and understanding the lives, values and traditions of friends, classmates and members of the wider community. Much of this learning already takes place in Irish classrooms, where a child's sense of their own identity and belonging is nurtured and valued. To ensure that every child has the opportunity for such learning and to ensure that the good practices that already take place in schools are recognised, the NCCA are developing a curriculum in Education about Religions and Beliefs (ERB) and Ethics.
