RE & Collective Worship

Religious Education

A carefully planned programme of Religious Education based on The Bedfordshire Scheme of Work and Understanding Christianity is taught throughout the school. Teaching about the Christian religion has a major role. The children also have the opportunity to study other world faiths.

Our pupils learn about religion through stories, books, drama, music, dance, film clips, visits and visiting speakers. Our children learn to compare and contrast the beliefs of different faiths and develop an understanding and tolerance of religious experiences and attitudes.

Moral education is part of the daily life of the school. Emphasis is placed on the school as a family, where children learn to co-operate with one another and to take responsibility and care for each other.

Assemblies and Collective Acts of Worship

A collective Act of Christian Worship is held daily and a member of the local clergy visits our School fortnightly to lead worship.

Parents have the right to withdraw their children from Religious Education lessons and from collective acts of worship.
