    DD's school has no religious education classes thankfully.

    Personally to the extent it is taught in any secular school I'd see it in the nature of history classes, but not taught as fact more as the history of how different people believe different things. I am atheist but personally love some of the Old Testament stories when I was a kid as it was like travelling back in time. I never believed any of it was real.

    Default What RE options does your primary school provide?

    I don't know what options the school has, dd doesn't do religion. She sits out and does advanced maths work - her choice. The other kids read or colour or whatever they choose. I ask her if she wants to do it as I believe it's her choice, she doesn't want to.

    This. I would love to visit Jerusalem, Bethlehem etc (as soon as they stop firing rockets at each other) and would caption my photos as Bethlehem - The birthplace of Jesus etc..... but then I also have photos labelled as "The apartment building from Friends" and "Hogwarts Castle".....

    History/Geography sounds like a great place to include it as teachings as no one is disputing that the towns of Bethlehem etc have been around for thousands of years, just as the ancient Egyptian pyramids/tombs have been around along with Ancient Greek architecture that was built a couple of thousands of years ago as well.
