Religious Education

Our Religious Education curriculum follows an agreed Hampshire syllabus called ‘Living Difference’. Since 2004, it has been the statutory framework which defines the matters, skills and processes to guide individual schools developing their curriculum. It is intended to provide the basis of good teaching in religious education and, as a result, be open to the plurality of ways in which people live within our local and national communities and the world.

 

We think our curriculum should reflect our community and we encourage everyone in bringing their faith, values or experiences into our school. We believe a curriculum that reflects the community our children live in is something that should be inclusive for all. 

 

Please share any experiences, opportunities or links you may have that would enhance our children's curriculum. We would love to hear from you.

Assemblies are an important part of our school and are organised as follows:

 

Monday – Whole School – led by the Headteacher

Tuesday – Whole School – led by the Deputy

Wednesday – KS2 Singing Assembly / KS1 Class Assembly

Thursday – KS1 Singing Assembly / KS2 Class Assembly

Friday – Whole School Celebration Assembly led by the Headteacher. Parents of children in the 'Golden Book' are invited to attend.

 

The tables below provide an outline of our Assembly themes for the year but these may be subject to change.
