Religious Education

Our school is non-denominational and our programme of study follows the revised Suffolk Agreed Syllabus. Every class spends time across the year exploring different faiths and cultures from around the world.

There are daily acts of collective worship either as a whole school community or in individual classes. If you wish to withdraw your child from acts of worship, please contact the Headteacher who will arrange this for you.
