Wolverton is a Foundation school and we follow the Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education for the county of Warwickshire. The locally Agreed Syllabus reflects the fact that ‘the religious traditions in Great Britain are in the main Christian, while taking account of the teaching and practices of the other principal religions represented in Great Britain’.
In schools where an Agreed Syllabus applies, Religious Education must be non-denominational.
In our Religious Education teaching we link religions, beliefs and cultural traditions to the developing world and to the past, so that children have an understanding of how and where the religions of the world have developed. We also aim to develop the children’s understanding of and respect for other faiths and the beliefs of people around the world. In our teaching every effort is made to increase children’s awareness of other faiths and cultures. Lessons are engaging and offer opportunities for working with a partner, as a whole class or as part of a group. Discussion, role play, research, art and recording tasks are regularly used as part of the approach to teaching
Daily Acts of Collective worship, either group or whole school based, are of a broadly Christian nature.
Religious Education must be provided for all registered pupils in full time education except those withdrawn at their parents’ request, this includes pupils in Reception classes.
