Religious Education

‘Religions are different roads converging to the same point. What does it matter that we take different roads, so long as we reach the same goal.’ Mahatma Gandhi


Our school welcomes families of all faiths and families with no faith, and this is reflected in the learning conducted in our RE lessons. Children study religious education and world views in our school using the Hertfordshire syllabus. We have adapted the syllabus to ensure progression, to provide a pathway for children to learn about religions and worldviews through clear, sequential steps. Herts for Learning explains the syllabus:

“The … agreed syllabus sets out the statutory requirements for Hertfordshire Community Schools and Foundation and Voluntary Schools without a religious character. It offers clarity and revision to the aims, time allocation, breadth of study and expected learning outcomes for Religious Education.”

Parents have the right to withdraw their child/children part or all Religious Education lessons.  Parents considering withdrawing their child/children are requested to contact the Headteacher to arrange a discussion.
