RE and Assemblies
We follow the Kirklees Agreed Syllabus for RE from Reception through to Year 2. We hold a daily act of worship with a broadly Christian focus. We do however recognise and celebrate festivals and cultural celebrations, which reflect our school community and is a huge strength of the school.
On Mondays a member of the Senior Leadership Team delivers assembly. On Tuesday to Friday assemblies are either class based, year group teacher led or celebration assemblies of pupil achievement.
Through these shared gatherings we take the opportunity to develop our children’s Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural understanding as well as promote our school ethos and the fundamental British values of; democracy, rule of law, individual liberty and the mutual respect and tolerance of the many different faiths and beliefs that people hold.
Work done over the past few years around RE, Rights Respecting Schools and Black Children’s Achievement Programme, has led to the curriculum being more culturally infused across school. Pupils increasingly demonstrate respect for others and their culture and enthusiastically embrace new experiences, which broaden their understanding and are designed to explore cultural diversity & local, national & global communities. Pupils demonstrate real thirst for knowledge to find out more and this is evident in their topic books and pupils' Learning Logs.
