Religious Education

In keeping with practice in all state schools, Religious Education is taught according to an Agreed Syllabus produced by the Education Authority. The Newcastle upon Tyne Agreed Syllabus was published in June 2005 and states that by the end of Primary School children should have learned about Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism and Islam.

Through the teaching of R.E. we are encouraging children to explore the place and significance of religion in human life, so making a contribution to each child’s search for a faith by which to live.

Regular acts of worship shape the entire ethos and atmosphere of life in school, and give frequent opportunities for children to be involved in some way during a whole school gathering.

(Parents may, should they wish, withdraw their children from R.E. and collective acts of worship).
