Religious Education and Collective Worship

The school follows the Medway Agreed Syllabus as a basis for developing moral and spiritual awareness. We aim to provide opportunities for children to explore meaning and purpose to life through Christianity and other World religions. A daily act of collective worship takes place either in whole school, year group or class assemblies.


Key festivals, from different faiths and cultures, are celebrated throughout the year as a whole school and in classes. Children are encouraged to think about the similarities and differences between faiths and cultures. We celebrate different faiths and cultures in a cross-curricular way whether through our RE lessons, cookery, topic lessons or assemblies or even whole school theme days.


The following religions are taught and developed as the children progress through the school. They will learn about Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism.

An Act of Parliment governs Religious Education. Parents can withdraw their children from R.E. or collective worship by writing to the Headteacher.
