Religious Education is broadly Christian in character but includes elements from other faiths. Care is taken not to teach anything that might offend any particular denomination. Parents have the right to withdraw a child from all or part of religious worship or instruction, as laid down in section 25 of the Education Act 1944. We follow the agreed syllabus for Religious Education and world religions are introduced to the children.
A Breakfast Club runs from 7.30 a.m. each day providing children with a variety of activities including a healthy breakfast at a cost of up to £4.00 per day. School staff provide supervision for the children until they go into their classrooms.
After school provision is provided by our Play Leader, Mrs. Emma Stratford and our Play Assistant, Miss Jacqui McCarthy. It runs from 3.30 until 5.25 p.m. providing a wide variety of activities including healthy snacks and drinks at a cost of £5.00 per day.
