All children follow an enquiry based course of Religious Education as set out in the school’s
RE policy. This is based on Cambridgeshire’s agreed syllabus and is broadly
Christian in nature. It does, however, cover other religions. We live in a
multi -cultural society and give our pupils opportunities to experience and
develop an awareness of other cultures, festivals and celebrations.
Religious Education offers a positive moral view of the world and the child’s
place in it. We encourage tolerance of all beliefs and views. We strive to make Religious
Education an experiential activity through visits to church and other religious places of
worship. Visitors are used to broaden the children’s understanding of a variety of faiths. The
children explore Christianity and other faiths through art, cooking, drama, dance, music and
All children are involved in a daily act of collective worship as required by the
Education Act of 1988. Again, these assemblies are broadly Christian in nature
but we recognise and celebrate religious beliefs and festivals of other cultures.
Parents have a right to withdraw their children from Religious Education,
collective worship or both. Parents considering exercising this right are asked
to discuss this with the Executive Principal so that alternative provision can be organised.
We ask that this request is formalised in writing on entry to our school.
