Religious Education at St Luke’s School is based upon the Diocese of Leicester Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education - ‘Understanding Christianity’ and the Leicestershire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education - ‘Leicestershire Religious Literacy for All’.
The majority of our Acts of Collective Worship are of a wholly Christian nature.
The aim of Religious Education is to:
Parents may exercise their right, under the Education Reform Act, to withdraw their children from Religious Education and Collective Worship. Please speak to the Head-teacher for further information.
We provide a caring Christian environment where all members of the community are valued and respected. Collective Worship is at the heart of our school ethos. Our Collective Worship is wholly based on Christian principles from the life and example of Jesus Christ who taught that we should care for all, regardless of creed, race or colour.
Pupils are given the opportunity for reflection. We encourage our children to explore their own beliefs, and to consider spiritual and moral issues. Children will also be encouraged to value and respect the beliefs of other religions. There will be opportunities for children to consider some of the main festivals celebrated by a range of religions.
As a Church of England School we believe that Christian values should be central to all we do. A set of Christian values, personal to our school are worked on throughout our school year in Collective Worship, RE and PSHE.
