RE follows the agreed syllabus and is taught within RE themes. We are now using a scheme called Understanding Christianity as part of our RE curriculum. The aim of religious education is to enable children to develop an understanding of the nature of religion, its beliefs and practices. Children acquiring knowledge of religion, exploring and reflecting on human experience, as well as developing sensitive attitudes will achieve this. Children will be encouraged to use our 3 core Christian values of Friendship, Forgiveness, and Trust to develop social and emotional skills.
Parents retain the right to withdraw their children from religious education. In such cases, this is done after prior arrangement with the Head teacher, and alternative arrangements are made.
We have events throughout the year at St Mary's Church. We also have visitors to our collective worship in school.
