Religious Education

A carefully planned programme of Religious Education based on The Suffolk Agreed Syllabus and The Emmanuel Project is taught throughout the school. Teaching about the Christian religion has a major role. The children also have many opportunities 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 respect 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.

Parents have the right to withdraw their children from RE lessons. Due to inclusive nature of our Religious Education programme, none currently do.
