Our Religious Education programme follows the Hampshire Agreed Syllabus, Living Difference IV. It is taught through half termly topics in which children learn about Christianity and other world faiths.
RE is also linked with other curriculum areas covering knowledge and understanding of religion, awareness of life experiences, exploring and responding. Children are encouraged to make wise choices and to become aware of their own values. Through opportunities to appreciate different ideas, beliefs and cultures, children are encouraged to develop responsibility, co-operation, self-discipline and tolerance.
Our school community has a large range of different cultures and faiths and we welcome opportunities to learn about these from the children. We also celebrate festivals and important days from other faiths and cultures such as Diwali, Christmas, Chinese New Year and Easter.
We have a daily act of worship, which is non-denominational. Stories, poems, artwork, music and stories from the Old and New Testament are used to provoke children to reflect and develop their own thinking.
