Religious Education

re_photoProvision in Religious Education is compulsory for all children in maintained schools. We follow the Hertfordshire Agreed Syllabus which reflects the fact that the religious traditions of Great Britain are, in the main, Christian, whilst taking into account the teaching and practices of the other main religions represented in our communities.

Through the Hertfordshire Agreed Syllabus pupils learn about the beliefs, traditions, festivals, and writings of Hinduism, Sikhism, Islam and Judaism, although the emphasis is on Christianity and its principles.

By exploring and responding to religions and the natural world, children also engage with social, cultural and moral issues.

As a church school, we have close links with St. Mary’s Parish Church, their clergy and other local church schools.
