Religious Education

We aim to provide a Christian education for our pupils, while also developing within them an appreciation of the range of beliefs of others in the local community and in the wider world. Children experience this in school values and attitudes based on Christian commitment, while also developing respect and sensitivity towards those with different beliefs.

We seek to reflect our school status as a Church of England school without representing Christianity in a denominational way, but drawing upon the church community as a resource and living testimony to the influence of Christianity upon the life of its adherents. We aim to foster respect, tolerance, empathy, awareness and understanding of self and others in our teaching.

We aim for an open and reflective approach to Christianity and other world faiths and appreciation of what it might mean to a member of a faith community. We try to ensure that children develop both knowledge and understanding through their time at school.

Children in our school will become confident and successful individuals by learning to reflect on and express their own views while thinking and respecting the beliefs and values of others.

Galatians Ch5 vv 22 & 23
But the Spirit produces love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, and self-control. There is no law against such things as these.
