Religious Education (RE)
At Windy Nook, we believe that religious education should provide a relevant and interactive study of religion, preparing children for later life in multi-cultural Britain. As Christianity remains the main religion followed by the British population, it will receive the appropriate level of coverage within the religious education curriculum. Due consideration within this framework will be given to other faiths to ensure respect, tolerance and understanding for the beliefs of others are promoted and encouraged as part of our programme and education in British Values. The school has adopted educationGateshead’s Religious Education Policy. Parents have the right to withdraw children from religious lessons and daily worship in assemblies however it must be taken into account that these activities make a contribution to cross-curricular National Curriculum objectives and help shape them into accepting, educated individual’s in a varied community.
