Religious Education

  • Religious Education is provided in the school within the framework of the Hartlepool Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education (last revised in 2012) in accordance with the 1944 Education Act. 

    In RE, focus is placed on religious beliefs as well as moral values and our work here plays a large part in the development of each child as a whole person. We use stories, myths, legends and lives of famous people to explore religions of the world. All children are encouraged to respect other religions in today’s multi-cultural society.  We have strong links with the local Church of England: Holy Trinity in Davison Drive where at least four services are held there each year. 

    Moral Education is based on rights and wrongs in everyday life, respect for oneself and others, honesty, kindness and sharing. This is approached in a caring atmosphere where children feel secure and happy and reinforced through our own school values.

     

    Acts of Worship:  Children take part in a daily act of worship which is broadly Christian. Parents may request the withdrawal of their child(ren) from attendance at collective worship by informing the school in writing.
