Religious Education

We are convinced that Religious Education has a vital part to play in the personal, social, moral and spiritual development of pupils and it is a requirement that all pupils are introduced to a religious dimension as a part of their general school education. Throughout the school the subject is taught in mixed ability groups with the focus upon learning about different religions and great stress is laid upon the equally important personal and social skills which Religious Education tries to develop.

Emphasis is put upon moral behaviour and the effect of religion on personal and family life. Parents who wish to withdraw their children from the lessons on religious grounds may do so providing they provide the headteacher with suitable reasons by letter.
