Religious Education

Religious Education

Our school uses the Manchester Diocesan syllabus for RE, which develops knowledge and understanding of the Christian faith and allows us to explore and appreciate other faiths, traditions and beliefs.

In line with the requirements of the Education Reform Act, our children take part in a daily collective worship. These are based around our half-termly Christian Value and include reflection, hymns and prayers.

Please see links below or class pages regarding the National Curriculum end of year expectations for each KS1 and 2 class and the Early Years Foundation Stage Areas of Learning.

Should parents or other members of the public wish to find out more about our curriculum please contact school to speak to the teacher in charge (co-ordinator) of a particular subject. 

Please find the Spiritual, Moral, Social, Cultural, Environment, Sports and Fitness curriculum documents by year group below. 

Parents have the right to withdraw their child from the teaching of Religious Education and class teachers will ensure that any children who are withdrawn will be properly supervised and purposefully occupied.

Moral Education

As part of the Personal, Social, Health & Citizenship Education and the programme of study for Science, children will consider health issues including the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and human reproduction. 

Questions, which arise from discussions, will be handled sensitively. The school nurse talks to girls and boys separately in year 6 about bodily changes and adolescent hygiene. Parents considering withdrawing their child from sex education should see the Headteacher.
