Religious Education and Collective Worship
Religious Education in our school is taught in accordance with the locally agreed syllabus and reflects the teaching of the Church of England.
Through the teaching of religious education we aim to promote the spiritual and moral development of the children, at the same time seeking to ensure that it promotes respect, understanding and tolerance for those who adhere to different faiths.

A parent does have the right to withdraw their child from religious education if so wished. In order to comply with the 1988 Education Reform Act each school is required to ensure that all pupils take part in daily collective worship. Nothing in the Education Reform Act affects parents’ rights, as established in the 1944 Act. Any parent does have the right to withdraw their child from collective worship if they wish.
