Religious Education and Collective Worship
The Academy endeavours to reflect the fact that the religious traditions in Great Britain are, in the main Christian, whilst taking account of the teaching and practices of other religions represented in Great Britain.
Due to lack of suitable space it is not possible to have a whole school assembly every week. We are able to gather for collective worship in the form of assemblies for each Year Group every day, although this time may instead be used for tutor-based activities. Daily thoughts for reflection are based on Christian values and traditions. However, these are wide ranging and multi-cultural in origin and offer themes which underpin collective worship in the Academy.
The Governors recognise the right of parents to withdraw their children from religious education lessons and acts of collective worship. Parents are asked to contact the Principal regarding this, and following consultation with the Academy, alternative arrangements for the child during these times will be agreed.Collective Worship Policy
