Religous Education

Albourne Church of England School ensures that all children recognise Christian values as part of the ethos of our daily life at school.  Teaching of Religious Education is based on the West Sussex Agreed Syllabus for Education, and through this we teach about other world religions and encourage a respect for all beliefs.  
Children are given the opportunity to learn about a range of world religions - visiting a Hindu place of worship, learning about Islam and developing a secure understanding that children have a right to their own beliefs (Article 14 of the UNCRC).  
 
We also encourage children to ask 'big questions' through our teaching based on 'Understanding Christianity' - helping children to understand the world and their own place in it.
