Religious Studies

The curriculum is based on Christian beliefs and principles but it also contains elements from other world religions, giving an introduction to the multi-faith community.

Stories from the Old and New Testaments, told simply in the early years, are covered in greater depth and detail, extended in drama or discussion, by older pupils.  This helps continuity and progress as your daughter matures and develops a deeper understanding of religious and moral issues.  Religious customs, festivals and rituals are studied and frequently celebrated.  Your daughter is encouraged to reflect upon questions of concern, responsibility and service.  Much of the RS lesson takes the form of discussion, in keeping with the philosophy of the school to encourage children to think for themselves.
