Religious and Moral Education

Religious Education is concerned with developing an understanding of religion.  Our learners have the opportunity to learn about, and from,  the beliefs, values, practices and tradition of Christianity and the world religions selected for study at each stage.  Moral education is taught via specific lessons and by an ethos of respect promoted throughout our school.  We encourage our learners to develop respect for others and an understanding of religions and non-religious beliefs and practices which are different from their own.  We ensure that we take account of the faith background, circumstances and developmental stage of the children and their capacity to engage with complex ideas.

Collaborative learning encourages children to discuss and share ideas and develop skills for life and work such as communication, working with others and problem solving.  Religious observance assemblies are led by St Mark’s church staff every 3-4 weeks.  As parents you have the right to withdraw your child from religious observance and should you wish to exercise this right, you are asked to confirm this in writing to the Head Teacher.

Values such as justice, wisdom, compassions and integrity are further developed through exploration and discussion in religious and moral education.
