At this school, RE expresses and strengthens our vision, ethos and values that are at the heart of what we aim to do in every aspect of school life that offers human flourishing for all. The importance placed on the development of the whole child spiritually, morally, socially, culturally and intellectually is reflected in the RE curriculum. In Captain Shaw’s Church of England School, where pupils and staff come from different faiths and none, RE is a highly valued academic subject that enables understanding of how religion and beliefs affect our lives. There is ‘a commitment to generous hospitality, being true to our underpinning faith, but with a deep respect for the integrity of other religious traditions (and worldviews) and for the religious freedom of each person. (Statement of Entitlement 2019)
Whether pupils and staff come from different faiths or none, our Collective Worship is fully inclusive exploring and learning from life lessons of past and present; celebrating ourselves and each other and investigating thought-provoking ideas and themes, including British values.
Children are not passive listeners but fully involved; sharing their views and feelings and even running their own weekly gathering - all helped by a beautiful library with woodland theme, which encourages relaxation, equality and creativity of thought.
We are incredibly proud of what we do here!
