Religious education is taught in line with Nottinghamshire guidelines. Although broadly Christian, it also reflects our multi-cultural society and the faiths, customs and celebrations of other cultures. We have daily school, year group or class assemblies, which are taken by members of staff. Guest speakers from the local faith groups are regularly invited to lead an assembly. Parents have the right to withdraw their children wholly or partly from religious education or assemblies on religious grounds.
The school has no affiliations with any particular religious denomination. A statement of gratitude is said by all pupils on a daily basis before lunch.
Sex and Relationships Education
This is conducted in accordance with the guidelines issued by Nottinghamshire Education Authority. It is age-appropriate and taught implicitly through other areas of the curriculum such as Science, RE and Personal, Social and Health Education. It is not taught as a discrete subject area. Parents wishing to exercise their right to withdraw their child from aspects of Sex and Relationships Education should notify the Head Teacher
