Religious Education

Religious Education is provided as part of our curriculum and, in accordance with Local Authority guidelines, follows the Lancashire Agreed Syllabus.

Children learn about all religions (and that some people choose to have no faith) with a focus on developing tolerance and understanding of themselves and others in our community. Teaching in this way helps children to compare and consider everybody, ultimately leading to greater understanding and respect.


Assemblies – technically termed ‘daily acts of collective worship’ – are a legal requirement. Our assemblies promote values which complement and reinforce all faiths.

Parents have a statutory right to withdraw their children from Religious Education and assemblies if they so wish. Applications should be made in writing to the Principal so that alternative provision can be made.
