We are very lucky to have so many faiths represented in our school. In accordance with our Rights Respecting ethos, children have the right to celebrate their religion. As part of the curriculum, we teach children to develop their understanding of all the beliefs in the world.
The Education Act 1996 requires the syllabus to reflect that the religious traditions of Great Britain are in the main Christian whilst taking account of the teaching and practices of the other principal religions represented in Great Britain.
The Agreed Syllabus document explains that in terms of curriculum development, there are three statutory aims. The curriculum should enable all young people to become:
• successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve;
• confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives;
• responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society.
