Religious Education and Collective Worship
The Academy does not have a religious denomination and welcomes students from all faiths. Provision is made for religious education to be given to pupils at the academy in accordance with the agreed local syllabus. This is given through the Religious Studies programme in KS3 and ethics programme in KS4. The Academy provides collective worship of broadly Christian themes and celebrates other faiths and morality in accordance with our values. This is given through planned assembly themes and a thought for the week which is also reflected upon in tutor time and whole school messaging. The Academy complies with the Mainstream Academy Supplementary funding agreement.
Parents have the right to choose whether or not to withdraw their child from RE. We encourage parents to research this decision before applying for a place at the Academy. We also encourage parents who are considering this to meet with school staff first to understand the educational objectives and content of the RE syllabus. In this way, parents can make an informed decision.
