Religious Education and Collective Worship
We are a non-denominational school. We endeavour to foster attitudes of tolerance, respect and care for others through all aspects of school life and specifically in Religious Education lessons, Collective Worship and Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education.
We would like to draw your attention to the notes concerning withdrawal of pupils from religious worship or instruction in line with Section 25 of the 1988 Education Act:
A parent has the right to withdraw a pupil from attendance at religious worship and/or religious instruction at any county or voluntary school.
The school will work closely with you if you do not wish your child to be included in religious worship or instruction, or other modifications are required. If suitable religious instruction cannot be given in the school, the parent/guardian may provide it elsewhere and the pupil may be released from school for that purpose. This should not be at the expense of any other element of the curriculum. Please do come and discuss this matter should you wish to consider this option.
