Religious Education (R.E)
Religious Education is a foundation subject and an essential component of the broad and balanced curriculum taught at Larks Hill School. Religion is an expression of faith, belief and worship. It teaches children about the nature of religious belief, practices and the importance and influence of these on the lives of believers. Religious education makes an important contribution to the spiritual, moral and cultural development of our pupils.
The Reform Act of 1988 requires that RE should be provided for all pupils. It must be “in the main Christian, whilst taking account of the teaching and practices of the other principal religions represented in Great Britain”. Parents are allowed to withdraw their children from religious education lessons if they so wish by approaching the Head teacher.
