Religion

We follow the locally agreed syllabus, which is written by a group representing all the main local faiths.  Children learn about Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Sikhism and Hinduism.  They not only learn about the main beliefs and practices in these religions, but reflect on what they have in common and the moral and spiritual issues that are raised by their beliefs.  They are encouraged to reflect on their own lives and how spiritual approaches might assist them.

In line with legal requirements, an act of collective worship is held each day.  On three days this brings the whole school together and we use the opportunity to reflect on moral issues that all religions have in common and to reflect on the main festivals of each of the major religions as well as teaching about Christian beliefs.  A whole school assembly to which parents are invited is held at Christmas and at Easter.
