Religious Education is provided within the framework of the Local Education Authority's Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education.
Our aim is to ensure pupils have an awareness and understanding of World Faiths, to approach this with sensitivity and respect the beliefs, actions and feelings of believers and to provide opportunities for children to challenge discrimination and stereotyping.
At Carlton, we allow pupils the opportunity to identify and understand ultimate questions and ethical issues, develop their reflection on and response to their own experiences of religion and enable them to manage risk and change throughout their lives.
An act of collective worship is held every day. Our assemblies are as follows:
- Monday – Whole school assembly
- Tuesday – Singing assembly
- Wednesday – Key Stage assembly
- Thursday – Class assembly
- Friday – Celebration assembly
In our assemblies we try to promote desirable moral and social values, and values such as caring for each other and caring about our school and our community are encouraged. Assemblies where good work, positive attitudes and behaviours are celebrated, promote children's self-esteem.
If the parents of any child attending school request that their child be excused from attendance at collective worship or religious education lessons, the child may be excused.
