Religious Education

  • Religious Education is in accordance with the provisions of the agreed syllabus, published by the education authority. It is designed to promote an understanding and respect for the religious beliefs of people in our own community and beyond. We aim to help children understand that there is a spiritual aspect to people’s lives and encourage them to seek for purpose and meaning in day to day relationships.

    As well as Religious Education we have some time each day which is Collective Worship. By law we are required to have collective worship which is pre-dominantly Christian in nature. Each act of worship is non-denominational and will usually include a prayer, a spiritual song, short periods of quietness or stillness as well as appropriate stories or poems. Assemblies are held every day and led by school staff or visitors representing the different churches in Cheddar. During our weekly Celebration Assembly Children’s achievements inside and outside school are praised and celebrated by the whole school. Once a month a different class hosts an assembly and parents and friends are invited to join us and share in the children’s learning and achievements. As a school we celebrate the main festivals of the Christian calendar – Easter, Harvest and Christmas.

    Under the provisions of the Education Reform Act 1988 all parents have the right to withdraw a child from the school’s daily act of collective worship, or from Religious Education. Any parents wishing to do so should contact the Headteacher.
