RE develops pupils’ knowledge, understanding and awareness of Christianity and the other main religions represented in Britain. It encourages respect for those with different beliefs and promotes pupils spiritual, moral, cultural and mental development.
All RE is taught in blocks in line with the attached plan. It provides pupils with the opportunity to worship God, to consider spiritual and moral issues and to explore their own beliefs. Opportunities are also taken throughout the curriculum to develop a sense of awe, wonder and the ability to reflect on spiritual and everyday issues.
All pupils take part in a daily act of collective worship. Collective worship may be led by a member of staff, children or visitors, including our local Rector, Reverend Ryk. Parents are invited to attend their child’s class assembly and special assemblies, such as Harvest, Christmas and Easter, held throughout the year in the Academy.
Pupils may be withdrawn from RE or Collective Worship, or both, if the parents wish it. However we would like to emphasise that this part of the day enhances the Academy’s ethos and academic teaching.
