As a Church of England school, Religious Education and Collective Worship play an integral role in the daily routine at St John’s CE Primary School. Our curriculum is built on Christian principles and practices; promoting, moral and social responsibility, a concern for the environment and a respect for other faiths and cultures.
A fundamental part of that is delivery of high quality RE teaching. Christianity is taught for the majority of the time alongside other faiths. We give children the opportunity to explore and reflect on human experiences encouraging the development of sensitive attitudes. Moreover, it deals with difficult questions and creates room for debate on more complex issues.
To enrich our RE curriculum, we have a range of visitors from local churches and other faith groups. Children are taught to empathise with different people in the community and understand the important role they play in making people special and unique.

Daily worship is at the heart of the life of St John’s C.E. Primary School. It offers regular opportunities for the school community to worship God, to share its beliefs and to reinforce its Christian values. Through collective worship we make a significant contribution to the religious, spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of those present.
