Religious Education (RE)

Our school has a strong Christian ethos which is central to all that we do. To this end, throughout their years in the school, pupils follow a core syllabus for Religious Education that focuses on the study of Christianity. However, any parent who wishes to withdraw their child from this area of the curriculum should contact the Principal to discuss the necessary arrangements. Pupils are also permitted, on request, to leave school to prepare for and attend sacraments. Religious Education is taught in a variety of ways, helping our pupils to develop their Biblical knowledge, spiritual awareness and personal faith. Class lessons, Scripture Union after school club and whole school weekly assemblies provide plenty of opportunities for this to be achieved. Local ministers and other staff from neighbouring churches, organisations and charities regularly lead in assemblies.
