Religious Education

Specific aspects of RE are taught from Reception to Year 6, within Education. Our policy is available to download below. Your child will learn about different religions so that tolerance and respect for others may develop through an understanding of the similarities and differences between people. Wheatlands follows the agreed RE syllabus for Redcar & Cleveland. 

We also seek to give children a rich variety of experiences through which they can develop the necessary attitudes and knowledge to formulate their own beliefs and social values. The development of self-awareness, moral values and positive relationships with others are elements of our work with your child. This also forms part of the Personal, Social and Emotional Curriculum within the Nursery and Reception.

Collective Acts of Worship

It is a statutory requirement that daily assembly is mainly Christian in nature. We provide acts of worship as specified by the Education Reform Act 1988. Regular whole school assemblies, help to promote key themes of trust, faithfulness, responsibility and respect taking into account the age and needs of the children. Celebration assemblies are held weekly. 

Members of the clergy from local churches conduct assemblies, we also visit local churches and places of worship as part of the curriculum and to celebrate events such as Christmas or Easter.

Should you wish to withdraw your child from assembly or any aspect of RE, please inform the Head Teacher so that suitable arrangements can be made. Our Collective Worship Policy can be downloaded below.
