Religous Education

“Religious education makes a distinctive contribution to the school curriculum by developing pupils’ knowledge and understanding of religion, religious beliefs, practices, language and traditions and their influence on individuals, communities, societies and cultures. It enables pupils to consider and respond to a range of important questions related to their own spiritual development, the development of values and attitudes and fundamental questions concerning the meaning and purpose of life.”

(The British National Curriculum)

We follow the guidelines of the British National Curriculum and our syllabus takes into account the teachings and practices of all principal religions represented in our community and within our student body. We provide religious education for all our students, although parents can choose to withdraw their children if they so wish.
