RE & Worship

Religious Education (RE) & Worship

 

At Blue Coat C of E (Aided) Junior School we value all children equally.

The ethos of the school is distinctively Christian, encompassing all that we stand for, is reflected in and expressed through Collective Worship; it derives from the Christian tradition and seeks to activate our beliefs and values which are set out, clearly, in the School Prospectus.

Religious Education (RE) plays an important role in defining our school’s distinctive Christian character. The subject is regarded as a core subject within the school’s curriculum. It has a vital role in developing and deepening pupils understanding of Christianity, in all its forms, and fostering appreciation and understanding of other faith traditions.
