Religious Education and Collective Worship
In accordance with the 1988 Education Act, the school aims to develop an awareness of the importance of Christian and moral values. Children meet each day for an Assembly and Collective Act of Worship where they are encouraged to take part. We encourage values shared or held in common by Christians and others. We bring the children together and share the things that the school and the community value.
Religious Education is an essential part of every pupil’s education entitlement which extends understanding of the world we live in. We follow the Lancashire Agreed Syllabus which has at its heart the quest to understand what it is to be human. The children learn about a variety of religions and the attitudes and values of different communities and faiths. They are encouraged to explore their feelings, attitudes and values as individuals and as members of the local community and the wider world. We also promote understanding and tolerance towards other races, beliefs and ways of life.
Parents have the right to withdraw their children from religious education or collective worship.
