Religious Education and Collective Worship
Religious Education in school follows the Hampshire Agreed Syllabus “Living Difference” which is non-denominational. In accordance with the requirements of the 1988 Education Reform Act (Section 8) the Syllabus reflects the fact that the religious traditions in Great Britain are in the main Christian, whilst taking account of the teaching and practices of other principal religions represented in the country. Parents have the right to withdraw their children from religious education on denominational grounds. Their wishes should be made known to the Headteacher.
A sex education and relationship policy has been agreed by the governing body. In Key Stage 2 pupils are taught the agreed programme. Parents are given a preview of materials and resources that will be used.
