King's House School, based in Frances Road, uses the Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) curriculum, which teaches a Biblical worldview and incorporates Christian values and teachings.
A Newsnight programme, broadcast on Monday, featured an article on the ACE curriculum which it described as teaching a 'hardline Christian agenda'.
Other claims made by the BBC 2 programme included that the curriculum taught that the 'theory of evolution doesn't stand up' and that the 'Earth is a just a few thousand years old'.
But Wes Richards, senior pastor of KCI, said the feature was misleading and that pupils at King's House are taught respect, tolerance and understanding.
The former journalist said: "The King's House School is an exciting and innovative new school which was recently rated by Ofsted as 'outstanding' in pupils' behaviour and personal development.
"It is clear from the strong parental support we receive that there is a real demand for a life-affirming education which is informed by a broadly based Biblical worldview."
