Religious Education is taught in accordance with the Diocesan guidelines to all age groups of children. All children attend a daily act of collective worship. On occasion, the whole school worships at St. Matthew’s Church and we welcome parents and friends to join us. Parents have the right to withdraw their child from R.E. and Collective Worship, upon prior arrangement with the Headteacher.
If you know of any person or family who are going through difficult times, you can let the school office know and we will send them a Prayer Card to let them know they are in our prayers.
This half term we are focusing on the Christian Value of Forgiveness.
We spent a lovely day meeting new friends from other schools in our LDST family.
