Religious Education and Collective Worship

At Isleham Church of England Primary School we comply fully with the statutory requirement to include RE in the curriculum and to provide a daily act of collective worship of a broadly Christian nature for children in Key Stages 1 & 2. We follow the locally agreed syllabus for RE and place an emphasis on the practical application of Christian values to daily life and decision making.  

The current SACRE Cambridgeshire Locally Agreed Syllabus 2023-2028 has been used since it was updated and became statutory in September 2023.  It can be accessed:



We recognise that some of our pupils may be of other faiths or no faith; however we believe that all pupils should have the opportunity to learn about the Christian faith and other major faiths which they will encounter in their lives, and have the opportunity to explore and reflect on values, spirituality, awe and wonder.

Our RE curriculum links closely with the Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education curriculum (PSHCE).

At Isleham C of E Primary School we use the Understanding Christianity resource with eh Emmanuel Project for World Faiths and Views o meet the statutory requirements of the Locally Agreed Syllabus 2023-28. 

Parents have the right to withdraw their child from RE and Collective Worship. This should be expressed in writing to the headteacher.
