The school has no affiliations with any particular religious denomination. RE is taught as a curriculum subject throughout the school in accordance with the agreed syllabus. Parents do have a right to withdraw their child from either RE or School Assembly. Arrangements can be made for pupils whose parents wish to take up this option. RE is often related to other subject or topic areas and in this way we aim to develop in pupils a reasoned set of attitudes, values and beliefs so they will learn to make sound moral judgements of their own.
An act of collective worship is held every day. It includes reference to moral and social issues, aesthetic values and stories from a variety of cultures. Children will hear stories from the Bible and the holy books of other faiths. We celebrate special holy days of other Faiths. Once a week we celebrate achievements and reinforce right attitudes and behaviour. Younger children get stickers and Juniors a certificate for a wide variety of aspects of life, for example: - being brave, kind, helpful, trying their best. Each class takes a turn to present an assembly to the rest of the school. Parents are invited to these assemblies.
We aim to celebrate the successes and promote self-esteem in all children.
