Religious Education (RE)

RE is part of the curriculum for all registered pupils in the school and, along with other curriculum areas, plays an important role in promoting the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of the children and in preparing them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.

Our programme follows the latest Lincolnshire Agreed Syllabus and the statutory guidelines of being broadly Christian whilst taking account of the teaching and practices of other principal religions.

Our pupils explore religion in order to achieve an understanding of different faiths and also to help them to develop their own beliefs, values and perceptions and a respect for the rights and beliefs of others.

The children have the opportunity to visit local places of worship as part of their curriculum studies, and also to celebrate some important Christian festivals, e.g. Easter and Christmas.

Visiting speakers, and a local reverend regularly take assemblies in school.

The school is often involved in fundraising activities, to support both local and world-wide charities such as Water Aid.
