As a school with a Church of England foundation, we naturally regard the religious education of the children as being of real importance. Religious education is given in accordance with the ‘Awareness, Mystery and Value’ syllabus agreed by the Local Education Authority and the Diocese of Bath and Wells, which encompasses a number of different faiths and practices.
The daily act of worship forms an integral part of each day and follows a number of themes. Children help in most acts of worship by organising the music; they also lead our weekly ‘Celebration Worship’ as a key role for the Hutton Awe Wonder and Kindness (HAWK) Council. We are very lucky to have the use of the Church for services at Christmas, Easter and Harvest.
Parents have the right to withdraw children from religious education lessons and collective worship.
