Religious Education in schools celebrates the diversity of religious and human experience. It encourages pupils to grow with the knowledge, skills, sensitivity and understanding to develop as confident and productive members of their local multi-faith community and the world.
We do not encourage belief in any specific religious or non-religious philosophy, but aim to develop children’s awareness and understanding that they live in a multicultural and increasingly diverse society.
Collective worship aims to promote those values which we believe a caring parent would wish to adopt. For example, kindness, compassion, understanding, honesty, consideration, empathy, encouraging respect for religious and moral values, and tolerance of other religions, races and cultures.
We take account of the family backgrounds of pupils and at times assemblies will be held which embrace relevant themes shared by Christians and non-Christians alike. An assembly is a valuable occasion when all can gather together to reflect or celebrate.
