Religious Education

We endeavour to enable individuals in our school community to learn together, grow in respect, tolerance and understanding of the world in which we live and embrace Christian values , to be the best we can be.

In accordance with the 1996 Education Act we provide religious education for all pupils registered at the school. Religious education and the National Curriculum make up the basic curriculum. Religious education is taught in accordance with a locally agreed syllabus and meets the RE entitlement. Our school uses the Discovery RE and Understanding Christianity units of work which are creatively delivered through RE Focus Days. RE has the same status and importance as any other curriculum subjects.

“The content and delivery of the learning on the day was very impressive…. There was lots of imaginative content…. The children stayed well engaged.” (comments made by visiting Vicar on RE day Feb 18)

“The boys really enjoy the RE Focus days (even in Nursery!). They always come home full of information and further questions!” (parent)

Children have a longer time to develop lovely in depth knowledge, conversations are at a higher level with a greater understanding of the subject.” (parent)

Prayer Spaces Week offers an opportunity for the school community to explore spirituality through Prayer and Reflection.

The four stations focus on the prayer acronym S (sorry), T (thank you), O (others), P (please)
