Religious Education

The school follows the North Yorkshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education which focuses on teachings from and teaching about a range of world faiths. RE is taught either as part of a class topic or weekly as a discrete subject.

Collective Acts of Worship

In accordance with the Education Reform Act 1988 and the North Yorkshire Agreed Syllabus, children take part in a collective Act of Worship each day which is broadly Christian based. It also encourages children to be reflective and develop a spiritual awareness. Parents/carers may exercise their right to withdraw their child/children from these activities in respect of their own religious beliefs. Members of local church communities visit regularly to lead our worship.
