Religious Education and Collective Worship


Religious Education is taught following the Bucks Agreed Syllabus guidelines and is intended to give children a sound knowledge of Christianity and other world religions.


Assemblies are held every day for our collective worship, the heart of the school. Assemblies are lively, engaging and full of surprises. There will often be a story, a quiz, a short film presentation or a game requiring audience participation. The children have a wide repertoire of songs, and love to raise the roof, often singing in rounds or harmony.


Monday’s assembly is led by our Vicar, Revd. Rosie Harper. We visit the Church at least once a term for a service in which the children take an active part.


Classes take it in turns to prepare and present an assembly to the school and parents. This is usually related to the work being done in class and gives all the children a chance to perform in front of an audience. These occasions are happy and relaxed and enjoyed by all.
