Religious Education

Our RE curriculum supports us in celebrating our unique, diverse, multi-cultural school. Through our planned RE programme we aim to enable children to explore their own personal experiences and teach them about a variety of religious faiths and their practices. Children are encouraged to form their own beliefs and develop respect for others. We actively promote ambition and endurance and the feelings of generosity, forgiveness, tolerance and belief. Each year group is taught RE on a weekly basis following the Understanding Christianity  and planned units of work from the Lichfield Diocesan Board of Education scheme. Our curriculum is designed to suit the age, maturity and needs of all pupils.

A daily Act of Collective Worship is an integral part of our school curriculum. Our planned themes for assemblies and worship cover areas of personal, social, spiritual, moral and cultural development. Stories and examples are drawn from a range of religions and cultural backgrounds, within a broadly Christian approach.

Our programme for worship includes opportunities for individual reflection, class worship and Key Stage assemblies, including occasions to celebrate achievements.

Right of Withdrawal 

Parents have a legal right to withdraw their child from all or some aspects of Collective Worship and Religious Education. We hope that our teaching programme and programme of Worship, whilst broadly Christian is sensitive to the beliefs and values of all faiths, but should any parent wish to exercise their right of withdrawal, they are asked to contact the Head of School.
