RE

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. The agreed syllabus secures for all, irrespective of social background, culture, race, religion, gender, different in ability and disabilities, an entitlement to learning in RE. This contributes to the children’s knowledge,
understanding, skills and attitudes, which are necessary for their fulfilment and development as active and responsible citizens. The Agreed RE Syllabus contributes to a coherent curriculum for Religious Education and promotes continuity for the transition of pupils between schools. In KS2, we study six of the different faiths, those being predominately Christianity, Sikhism, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism. Within these faiths we encourage tolerance of all the beliefs and views and allow the children to:
● Acquire knowledge
● Respond thoughtfully
● Develop morally
● Develop socially
● Develop spiritually
● Develop culturally

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 visits. 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 also 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.
