Religious education in our school is given in line with the County Agreed Syllabus. The religious instruction is moralistic and broadly Christian, including general beliefs and concepts of a range of faith communities. If you do not wish your child to receive such instruction, however general please contact Rachel Smith, head teacher. If required your child will be able to work with another member of staff whilst religious education is taking place.
It is not the policy of the school to teach sex education as a separate part of the curriculum. However, many aspects will be taught will be taught as part of regular topic work as seems appropriate e.g. Science. You will be informed when this is to occur as you do have the right to withdraw your child from sex education lessons. If you wish to discuss this, please contact Rachel Smith, head teacher
Special Education Needs
We believe that all our children are entitled to have equal access to all the experiences provided by our school, all our children are entitled to experience our broad and balanced curriculum, and all our children should be given the opportunity to develop to their full potential. To achieve this, a need for extra support may arise because of social, development or educational factors or because a child may be exceptionally gifted. Therefore we have developed the following aims:
Our school is ideally suited to children with Special Educational Needs of whatever kind. As a small school we know all our children as individuals and this offers great benefits. In addition, the premises of our school are readily accessible and flexible to those with physical disabilities. We have 2 ramps with handrails into School, a disabled toilet and level access within for children with mobility problems. Otherwise individual needs will be accommodated for as they arise. Other relevant information concerning the SEN policy is available in school.
