Religious Education

Religious education is provided within the framework of the guidance of the LEA and is non-denominational.  Because the school has voluntary aided status, at Carlton, the Governors are required to consider making provisions for Church of England denominational teaching under the Trust Deed for any pupils whose parent/guardian require such an arrangement.  To the present day there have been no such requests and the governors hope that the existing good educational practice whereby all pupils learn together in normal teaching groups will be able to continue.

The LEA agreed syllabus adopted by the school reflects some of the ideas contained in the Diocese of York’s Guidelines for Religious Education in Aided Primary Schools. Whilst our religious ethos is Church of England we ensure that the children are taught religious awareness and respect.

Understanding Christianity

To support our teaching and learning of Christianity in Religious Education we use Understanding Christianity. This resource supports our pupils in developing their own thinking and their understanding of Christianity, as a contribution to their understanding of the world and their own experience within it.

Collective Worship

Collective worship follows the teaching of the Church of England as appropriate bearing in mind the age, aptitude and ability of our pupils.  A broad approach is taken, in keeping with the inclusive character of the Anglican tradition and occasionally clergy from other denominations are invited to take part.

In line with the DFE guidance (July 2020), we will ensure:

Minimise contact between individuals and maintain social distancing wherever possible …. Groups should be kept apart, meaning that schools should avoid large gatherings such as assemblies or collective worship with more than one group. Singing, wind and brass playing should not take place in larger groups such as school choirs and ensembles, or school assemblies.
