We follow the new Blackburn Anglican Diocese syllabus. We are a Church of England (Aided) Primary School and as expressed in our mission statement, we aim to be a community in which the ethos and curriculum reflect the Christian principles on which the school was founded.
The school was judged as 'OUTSTANDING' overall during the 2016 SIAMS inspection.
'The school’s leaders have a strong focus on meeting the needs of the individual child and have developed effective self-evaluation processes that place the uniqueness of each child at the heart of school improvement.'
'Portfolios show evidence of the high value placed on RE and its wider context within the school.'
'There is very good leadership of RE which supports teachers and provides a clear vision for development.'
'RE is taught in a creative way with a strong emphasis on developing children’s ability to discuss and share ideas.'
Religious Education gives the children an opportunity to explore Christianity in depth. We believe it is also important to learn about Christianity around the world starting locally, thinking nationally and then globally. RE also provides our pupils with time to learn about other world faiths as they develop a sense of fairness and justice for all peoples whatever their background and wherever they live. Our spiritual, moral, social and cultural education reinforces the children's sense of awe and wonder and appreciation of others.
RE and Collective Worship (in fact everything we do!) is based on our core values.
