Hi there, we are trying to decide on primary school for our son and really the local RC school which he has been accepted to is ideal in terms of proximity and class size.
I don't mind leaving him opted into religion if we can sell it to him as 'nice stories to teach you how to be good' etc. I would prefer he is included in all classes with his classmates if possible but don't want him actually taking part in Communion or Confession when the time comes.
However if the content includes things like Hell, sinning, etc I will have him opted out which I know might set him apart from the class - I don't know if many parents will be doing the same yet.
Does anyone know what they cover in primary school religion? I really don't want him being actively taught gay people go to Hell etc, even if I am around to set him straight.
Is there a book name for example I can have a look at in the bookshop?
