Our Collective Worship, RE, PSHEE and Citizenship Curriculum Details
An act of Collective Worship takes place each day for the whole school. It is a special time in which children have an opportunity to reflect, share thoughts, listen and learn about a variety of issues. They include an element of worship; prayer, song, listening to music or silent contemplation. Parents may withdraw children from Collective Worship time, if they feel that this would be appropriate; please speak to the head teacher.
We follow the Diocesan Guidelines for teaching religious education. It follows a broadly Christian commitment. In addition we also investigate aspects of Judaism, Hinduism, and Sikhism. We also study a broad range of religious festivals. The school is a Church of England Primary School. The Trust Deed for the teaching of religious education and worship will meet the needs of the children of the Parish of Patterdale, stating that they are to be taught the principles and practice of the Church of England (dated 18th June 1872). A copy of the school’s policy on religious education can be seen at school. Parents have the right to withdraw their children from Religious Education and Worship.
PSHEE and Citizenship
These are taught both specifically and in in a cross-curricular way. Children are taught about living a healthy lifestyle, understanding how money works, how to work with others, be part of their community and understand feelings and emotions.
