Religious Education

Religious Education is taught through the Bedfordshire Locally Agreed Syllabus. Every class has one lesson of Religious Education during the week. We also regularly organise regular speakers from different faiths in to speak to the children either during lesson time or during assembly. Through the programme, children are encouraged to develop positive attitudes towards the lives and religious customs of others as well as exploring spiritual and moral aspects of life such as the emotions of love and hate, jealousy and intolerance, right and wrong, good and evil. Parents have the right to withdraw their children from Religious Education should they wish.

Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE)

Each class has a PSHE lesson once a week, taught using the planning from the SCARF Scheme of Work. Values education is delivered through our assemblies and curriculum. This is then built upon and referred to in class and throughout the school day. 

SCARF gives a focus across the three themes of Health and Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Wider World. These themes develop children’s responsibility for their own actions; respect for the actions and beliefs of others; an understanding of how each individual is protected by the rule of law; and how everyone can make a positive contribution to society through the democratic process. This enables us to link our learning with British Values.
