This is taught throughout our school and focuses on the Christian and other world religions, including Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Sikhism and Hinduism. It is planned to encourage children to question, celebrate and develop an understanding and tolerance for others.
The school has regular collective worship for all pupils which is of a broadly Christian nature. Throughout the year we also learn about the special events and celebrations that occur in other world religions.
At Michael Drayton Junior School we use the Warwickshire and Coventry agreed syllabus, selecting units which we feel is appropriate to the children in our school and the local area. The subject knowledge which is delivered builds on previous units taught and gives children a wider understanding of different religions, equipping them with the skills to tolerate and respect others and their beliefs.
If you wish to withdraw your child from R.E. and collective worship you may do so, but please contact the Headteacher first.
