Religious Education & Collective Worship

Religious Education is taught (in line with Hampshire’s 'Living Differences III’ curriculum). The school has a strong RE curriculum in place which provides a prime opportunity for children to develop their knowledge, understanding and appreciation of their own and different beliefs and cultures. Children are able to talk about the different faiths and cultures they learn about, ask questions and show tolerance and respect for others of different faiths and religions.  The two main religions in school are Christianity and Hinduism so this is the focus of our learning.

All state schools are required to make provision for a daily act of collective worship which follows the requirements of the 1988 Education Reform Act. Collective Worship takes place in the daily assembly which is non-denominational and broadly Christian. Assemblies are special occasions when achievements are celebrated, values underlined and spiritual, moral, social and cultural development recognised. The daily act of collective worship is a time of togetherness and reflection on values of importance to the school community.  This may be as a whole school, a year group or as a class.  Children are enabled to think about the importance of the school values in their own lives and this helps them to make positive choices.  Assemblies also develop children’s awareness of different cultures, religious beliefs, national days and global awareness days.
