Here at Hillborough Infant and Nursery School, the teaching of Religious Education is based mainly on Christian beliefs, although other world religions are studied, enabling children to develop a greater understanding of other cultures. Next term through the topic 'On Our Doorstep,' pupils will explore our town and locate places of worship. We also hope to visit the local church.
A yearly programme of themes is planned following the Religious Education Agreed Syllabus for Bedford Borough, Central Bedfordshire and Luton which encourages children to respect the religious, spiritual and moral values of others and to consider thoughtfully their own values and beliefs. All children share a collective worship time each day.
Parents have the right to withdraw their child from the teaching of Religious Education and are asked if they are considering this to contact the Headteacher.
