Subject: Religious Education (RE)

Our RE curriculum promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society. It also prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

RE is a curriculum entitlement for all children. RE does not seek to urge religious beliefs on children or to compromise the integrity of their own beliefs by promoting one religion over another. Parents have the right to withdraw their child from RE; suitable alternative provision will be made where necessary.

We promote a tolerance of, and respect for, people of all faiths (and those of no faith), cultures and lifestyles through the effective spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils, including in extracurricular activities and by volunteering in the local community.
