We are still safe in the UK.
In the UK we have checks to prevent children getting sub par education in science; check out this link:

The UK government is quite clear about what is and what is not science. It's quite clear that to give any ground at all is to let the Discovery Institute in Seattle be able to use their Wedge Tactic more and more.

There is place for creationism in the context of RE and historical obstacles to scientific inquiry:

The Artical writes:

"explain the reasons why the theory of evolution by natural selection met with an initially hostile response (social and historical context)".

This is about the only reason I can see that a child would need to know ID/creationism.

This is called irreducible complexity.

Care to give a non-refuted example of IC?

ABE: You may find this exchange between Miller and Behe interesting for examining IC.
