RE and Collective Worship

 Religious Education 

Through Religious Education, pupils are give opportunities to reflect on the nature and role of beliefs, the attitudes and values underpinning these, and the practices and behaviours that arise because of them. Skills developed through the teaching of RE include developing self -awareness, respect for all, open-mindedness, appreciation and wonder.

RE is taught in all classes and follows the procedures and guidelines laid down in the Tameside LA Agreed Syllabus, which introduces and discusses Christianity, Judaism, Islam and Hinduism.

Collective Worship 

This is Christian based but not exclusively so. A daily act of collected worship is held either as a whole School, in Key Stages or in the classroom. It is an important part of our school day.

Visitors are invited to take our Key Stage assemblies and Friday assemblies are special because we celebrate achievement and share good work. The school has no affiliations to any specific religious order but does have regular contact with local churches and pupils visit these and other places of worship as part of the RE programme.

Parents have the right to withdraw their child from RE lessons and religious assemblies if they wish. You will need to talk to the Headteacher before doing so. Alternative provision will be made for your child.
