We want children to develop a wider understanding of the world around them and to respect the beliefs and values of others. Opportunities for this may arise naturally in topic work and more formally in assemblies. R.E. is also taught as a discrete subject. We try to foster children’s positive attitudes towards themselves, other people, the environment and towards other cultures. Self-discipline, tolerance and thoughtfulness are all encouraged. In the Foundation Stage children are encouraged to develop respect for different cultures and beliefs, for example between one family and another. In Key Stage 1 the children find out about people’s beliefs and cultures through stories and topic work. In Key Stage 2, children undertake more detailed studies of Christianity and other world religions. Our school assemblies include moral and religious themes and are led by members of staff or visiting speakers. They are also an opportunity to celebrate children’s achievements and work. Classes lead an assembly during the academic year, to which parents are invited. Parents have the right to withdraw their children from R.E. and/or Assembly after consultation with the Head teacher.
