We expect children to develop some knowledge and understanding of the Bible, the Christian and other World Religions and to try to behave in accordance with the ideals of these beliefs. Through an open approach the children are encouraged to explore their own experiences, to discover and question, to be open to alternative views and to become aware of the various ways people have found meaning in life.
Through assemblies and classwork, we aim to be able to share in the different cultures and religions of the world. All children will learn something of the principal world religions and their importance in shaping the past and future of mankind.
We recognise that religious and spiritual values are very personal, coming from the home, and this is something we respect and encourage. In school we aim to foster respect, moral values and tolerance.
Assemblies are broadly Christian in nature. Parents may withdraw their children by applying in writing to the Headteacher. We hope that this will not be considered necessary as so much of the atmosphere of school would be missed.
