Religious Education (RE) is taught as a discrete subject using the Northamptonshire Agreed Syllabus. RE is taught to all children except those who are taken out by their parents. Our teaching promotes the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils. It reflects the fact that the religious traditions in Great Britain are in the main Christian, whilst taking account the teaching and practices of other principal religions represented in Great Britain. Once a week, a visitor from one of the local churches will deliver an assembly to the children based on Christian values.  Children are taught knowledge and understanding around a range of religious and worldwide views so that they can: describe, explain, analyse and investigate - allowing them to appreciate beliefs and practices, recognising the diversity, meanings and values within and between communities (including their own) and amongst individuals. We will not convert or steer children towards a particular religious belief.
