Religious Education and Collective Worship

At St George’s, we have a Christian ethos and encourage a caring, respectful atmosphere throughout the school. In 2019, our school was rated ‘Good’ following the SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) inspection. We visit our local church on several occasions throughout the school year, including Harvest, Christmas and Easter. We enjoy the opportunity to come together as a school community and celebrate through collective worship.

In Foundation Stage, the children learn about religious festivals such as Diwali, Chinese New Year and celebrate Christian festivals throughout the year.
In Key Stage One, the children begin to develop an understanding of Christianity, Judaism, Islam and Hinduism. They are often involved in role-play activities, as well as visiting the church.

In Key Stage Two, the children build upon their prior learning as well as introducing Humanism and Sikhism. Here, we aim for the children to be making comparisons between the different religions and exploring spirituality. In previous years, Year 6 children have attended the Open Church event in Shrewsbury.
