Religious Education

The school believes that religious education should provide a contemporary study of religion, preparing children for later life. The school bears in mind that the British Isles is a multi-cultural nation which has Christianity as the main religion of the indigenous population. As a result, Christianity will receive the appropriate weighting within the religious education curriculum. Due consideration within this framework will be given to other faiths. Respect, tolerance and understanding for the beliefs of others will be promoted as part of our programme. The school has adopted the L.E.A.'s Religious Education Policy.Parents have the right to withdraw children from religious lessons and daily worship in assemblies but it must be understood that such activities make a contribution to cross-curricular objectives pursued during the course of the school week. Please use your child's year group page to find out what they are learning about each half term!
