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 LCP Scheme of Work. We also have a system of Values education which runs through our system of assemblies. This is then built upon and referred to in each lesson that a child is part of. Sex Education is not taught as a discrete area of the curriculum, but staff aim to answer children’s questions as they arise, in science or PSHE.
