Science is about curiosity and wonder. Children are naturally inquisitive about the world in which they live and we aim, through enjoyable practical activities and first hand experiences, to develop skills and a body of knowledge. We expect the children to predict, question, hypothesise and understand the concepts of a scientific investigation. Children may work individually or collaboratively in a group where they develop their personal qualities and investigative skills.
We aim to foster a spirit of tolerance, co-operation and understanding both within our own community and in the wider world. Religious Education is central to our efforts. We teach children about Christianity and other world religions. We see ourselves as part of a village community in a wider society that is multi-faith, multi-cultural. Our R.E. curriculum will be provided in accordance with the Agreed Syllabus produced by NorthYorkshire County Council.
Our daily assemblies include an act of Collective Worship. On Fridays we have a sharing assembly when children’s work and achievements are celebrated. We visit church on a number of occasions throughout the year, for example Christmas, Education Sunday and at Easter time. We invite the whole school community to join us in Community Services for Harvest, Easter, Summer and Leavers’ Assembly. The local vicar is usually
involved in delivering a short message as part of these services.
Parents have the right to withdraw their child from Religious Education and the Collective Act of Worship. Please contact the Head Teacher if you wish to discuss this option.
