Religious Education is the bedrock of our curriculum as a Church School that was established by Trust Deed. We therefore treat this as one of our priority subject areas.
The school follows the Blackburn Diocesan Syllabus, which is the approved and adopted syllabus by the Liverpool Diocesan Board of Education.
A copy of the current syllabus can be found here: CURRENT DIOCESAN RE SYLLABUS
We are currently exploring and piloting the use of new national support material being released by the Church of England National Office and RE Today; Understanding Christianity. We are working with another pilot school in Blackburn Diocese to look how this biblically focussed material can impact on the work within our own scheme of work.
Parents are welcome to come and meet with either Mr Boyle, our Deputy Headteacher who leads our Collective Worship and RE Team or Ms Gray who is our RE Subject Leader to discuss the contents of the syllabus.
Our prospectus explains how parents may withdraw their child from receiving Religious Education, however it is essential that parents meet with us in school so they can make an informed decision. It should be noted that in application to this school you have chosen for your child to attend and Anglican Church School and that the school has expectations in response to this in terms of participation in school life and the curriculum.
