We follow the' Religious Education in Gloucestershire' Agreed Syllabus for our RE teaching. We take a balanced approach to the pupils' RE that is broadly Christian, but where required, takes account of the teaching and practices of the other principal religions represented in Britain. Lessons and teaching always promote tolerance of and respect for people of all faiths.
Please see the plans below to find out what your child is learning.
We follow the Cambridgeshire Scheme for teaching PSHE which covers topics such Relationships, Healthy Lifestyles and Diversity and Communities.
We choose a PSHE value each term, which we focus on in assemblies as well as in class. These values are as follows:
Respect, Sensitivity, Motivation, Attentiveness, Responsibility, Truthfulness
Throughout our school, particularly in PSHE lessons and assemblies, we aim to promote good spiritual, moral, social and cultural development (SMSC):
Spiritual - Explore beliefs and experience; respect faiths, feelings and values; enjoy learning about oneself, others and the surrounding world; use imagination and creativity; reflect.
Moral - Recognise right and wrong; respect the law; understand consequences; investigate moral and ethical issues; offer reasoned views.
Social - Investigate and moral issues; appreciate diverse viewpoints; participate, volunteer and cooperate; resolve conflict; engage with the fundamental values of British democracy.
Cultural - Appreciate cultural influences; appreciate the role of Britain's parliamentary system; participate in culture opportunities; understand, accept, respect and celebrate diversity.
