RELIGIOUS EDUCATION AND THE DAILY ACT OF WORSHIP:
Here at Roundhill, in accordance with the DfE guidance for RE and collective worship in academies, we follow an agreed syllabus which is mainly Christian in character. It is intended that our pupils should also gain awareness and understanding of other faiths, and have opportunities to reflect on their own beliefs; this provides a broad and balanced programme of learning.
Our Daily Act of Worship is designed to support children’s spiritual, moral and cultural development and to reflect this country’s mainly Christian tradition, whilst taking account of the teaching and practices of other principal religions. The 1988 Education Reform Act allows parents to withdraw their child from RE and the Daily Act of Worship. Any parent wishing to do so is asked to make a written request to the Head Teacher.
RE is assessed through children's responses to learning and through the answering of the 'big questions' at the end of each unit of learning; written and verbal responses are recorded in whole class RE books.
