RE at Castle Hill

Our Aim is to ensure pupils develop a knowledge and understanding of the beliefs and practices of different religious groups.

Throughout the teaching of RE, we want to develop positive attitudes and values such as positive self-esteem, a respect for others and their beliefs and an appreciation of the natural world.

We believe that Religious Education should provide a contemporary study of religion, preparing children for later life. We bear in mind that the British Isles is a multi-cultural nation which has Christianity as the main religion of the indigenous population. As a result, Christianity will receive the appropriate weighting within the Religious Education curriculum. Due consideration within this framework will be given to other faiths. Respect, tolerance and understanding for the beliefs of others will be promoted as part of our program.  We follow the Agreed Syllabus for RE in Kingston Schools. Daily acts of collective worship are held in the school. In line with legal requirements these are of a broadly Christian nature.

Parents have the right to withdraw their child from Religious Education and collective worship, if you wish to do this you will need to speak to the Headteacher and discuss the alternative provision for your child.
