The school follows the Somerset LA’s non-denominational agreed syllabus. The aim is to encourage children to explore what it means to have a religious commitment in an atmosphere of respect and tolerance.
Our assemblies are broadly Christian in content and include occasions for considering how best we can make our contribution towards making our community and the wider world a better place for all mankind. We believe that children can be helped towards a sense of moral responsibility by realising that they each have their own rights and responsibilities within school and at home, and we strive to achieve a school ethos which encourages and reflects this commitment.
Under the Education Reform Act, any parent wishing to withdraw their child from the school’s religious assembly or from religious education lessons has the right to do so and should write to the headteacher informing him of their decision.
