RE and Assemblies

​Religious Education forms an integral part of the school curriculum.  Religious Education is taught in accordance with an agreed syllabus, which has been drawn up in consultation with representatives of various faiths and within the terms of the Education Act. Every day children have the opportunity to take part in an act of Collective Worship or reflection.  Assemblies are of a broadly Christian character but are in harmony with the wider spiritual and moral concerns that are shared by the major world religions and belief systems.

In our assemblies we seek to promote our school vision and six core values of responsibility, respect, resilience, kindness, positivity and courage – with each term having a value as a focus for all acts of collective worship. Parents may ask to withdraw their children from Religious Education and Collective Worship, and where they do so, pupils will normally be expected to occupy these sessions with private study.
