Our RE teaching is built on fundamental principles of tolerance, respect and equality. We follow the Kent Agreed Syllabus which you can view on this page. The children learn about religion and learn from religion. This all contributes to our happy and caring school where educating the 'whole child' is at the heart of our work.
Parents have the right to choose whether or not to withdraw their child from RE or religious worship without influence from the school, although we would always want to meet with you and ensure you are aware of the educational objectives and content of the RE syllabus.
If your child is withdrawn from RE or religious worship, we would of course ensure your child is supervised during this time, though we will not provide additional teaching. Pupils will usually remain on school premises if an event is taking place at the local Church.
