When possible, a local Church of Scotland minister visits our school to take part in assemblies. During this, they often read the children stories which have a moral 15 message within them.
We also visit our local church at different times of the year, to mark certain religious events. We do recognise the right of every parent to withdraw their child from RE activities, so please do get in touch with the Head Teacher if you wish to do this.
Curriculum for Excellence requires us to give the children an awareness of other world religions as well as Christianity and we hope to teach respect, tolerance and understanding of others points of view and beliefs. Personal and Social Education is an on-going process, preparing our children to have socially acceptable behaviour thus preparing them for life. We use some ‘Circle Time’ materials, to help promote a sense of right and wrong and to help the children to learn about the importance of how they treat each other.
