Religious Education

Religious cross

The school is non-denominational. An agreed syllabus for Religious Education has been drawn up by the SACRE (Standing Advisory Committee for Religious Education) and the Education Committee of Solihull. This syllabus is used in all Solihull schools.

The RE Curriculum introduces children to Christianity, its values and influences on everyday life. We also encourage a respect for and understanding of other religions in preparation for our children’s place in a multi-cultural society. Children spend time ‘Learning About’ religious ideas as well as ‘Learning From’ these ideas and thinking about their own feelings about a range of issues.

Parents have the right to withdraw children from Religious Education. In such circumstances, arrangements for alternative provision will be made after discussion with the Head Teacher

The main areas of learning are: Christianity, Sikhism, Judaism, Islam and Hinduism.

The following weblinks can be used by children to support their understanding of different faiths.

Please note that, as these are external sites, it is possible that they may change or disappear without warning!

Collective Worship

The school meets together daily for an assembly led by the Head Teacher, members of Staff or groups of children. When children lead the assembly, the parents of those pupils are invited to join us. Parents are also invited at Harvest time, Christmas and for other festivals.
