RE and Collective Worship

Religious education (RE) is not part of the National Curriculum but must be taught in schools by law. The syllabus is agreed locally; it teaches children about different faiths and beliefs, and stresses the importance of respecting these. More details about Oxfordshire’s agreed RE syllabus, and the syllabus introduced from September 2015 can be found on the OCC website.

Our school’s relationship with the church does not change parents’ statutory right to withdraw their child from religious education or collective worship.

Please find our RE Policy (linked to Discovery RE).

Ms d'Archambaud, the Headteacher, is our school Lead on Collective Worship. Each term Collective Worship is linked to our School Values.

Mrs Hale assists Ms D'archambaud as the school Subject lead for RE. The enquiry based ‘Discovery RE’ scheme of work is used throughout the school. Please visit the class Topic Web pages to find out what each year group is studying in relation to RE

Pupils are regularly invited to help the Headteacher lead collective worship assemblies.
