Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.
At Whitley Village School, we believe that it is vital for all our pupils to learn from and about religion and world views so that they can understand the world around them. Through Religious Education, pupils develop their knowledge of the world faiths and world views, and their understanding and awareness of the beliefs, values and traditions of other individuals, societies, communities and cultures. We encourage our pupils to ask questions about the world and to reflect on their own beliefs, values and experiences. We follow the CWAC agreed syllabus for Religious Education.
