Religious education

Lindal & Marton Primary School is a non-denominational school and all pupils receive Religious Education in line with the Cumbria Agreed Syllabus for RE, a copy of which is held in school. Religious Education is defined as a part of the core curriculum which all maintained schools must provide.

It is an important part of the curriculum that extends the children’s understanding of the world in which they live. As well as Christianity our children learn about a variety of religions and the values of different communities and faiths.

Regular collective acts of worship bring the children together most days of the week. These assemblies reflect the traditions of Christian belief and promote shared values, tolerance and respect for others.

Parents have the right to withdraw their child(ren) from Religious Education and collective worship if they wish. Any wishes must be discussed with the Headteacher.
