Religious Education is embedded in our vision, ethos and values which are at the heart of what we aim to do in every aspect of school life. The importance placed on the development of the whole child spiritually, morally, socially, culturally and intellectually is reflected in our RE curriculum. As a Church of England Aided school, we use the Durham and Newcastle Diocesan RE Syllabus from Reception to Year 4 and teach Christianity as a majority study alongside a range of world religions and worldviews.
We employ a variety of teaching methods through discussion, recording, active participation, outside visitors, trips, art, music, the development of thinking skills, drama, the use of artefacts, pictures, stories, and the use of periods of stillness and reflection. Where possible, we want our pupils to have opportunities to encounter local faith communities through visits to local places of worship or visits from members of local faith communities.
In addition, children take part in a daily act of collective worship. Our school ethos of Together we learn with Love and Laughter and our list of aims outline the importance of recognising the place of God in our world and in our lives. We seek always to reflect in our worship, the Christian foundation of the school and its care for all who work there. Children are helped to understand the purpose of Christian Worship, share in it and appreciate the value of it.
As Headteacher of Morpeth All Saints Church of England First School, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our vibrant, caring and happy school.
