Religious Education

Arrangements for the Act of Collective Worship and for Religious Education are made by the school in accordance with the requirements of the 1988 Education Act.

We follow the Hertfordshire agreed syllabus for Religious Education, but parents may, if they wish, withdraw their children from the arrangements for Worship and Religious Education if such requests are made in writing to the Headteacher.

Our assemblies are an important feature of our day and they vary in format, including a weekly celebration assembly to which parents, grandparents and members of the wider community are welcomed.

The school enjoys close links with St Mary’s Church, Reed.

Religious Education is taught both within our cross-curricular topics and as a discrete subject, and includes not only Christianity, but other world religions as well.
