Religious Education

As the school is a community school, it has no affiliation with a particular religious denomination. Religious Education is taught throughout the school and follows government guidelines and the recommendations of our local Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education (SACRE).

The focus is mainly Christian; however, we also include material from the other major world religions. We seek to give the children a knowledge of and respect for both their own traditions and culture and those of others, through learning about and from religions. We have a short act of collective worship and assembly each day, in various groupings. Children often take an active role in collective worship and parents are invited to special assemblies.

We hope that our assemblies are broad and meaningful enough for everybody to be included. However, pupils may be released from attending Religious Education and assemblies if parents make a specific request to the Head Teacher.
