What is the Shema?
This unit intorduces some basic concepts of Judaism: basic beliefs, including the oneness of God, the Sefer Torah and mitzvot; practices, including the importance of prayer and Shabbat and how practices relate to the central beliefs enshrined in the Shema.
The religions studied in this unit are Judaism, with a comparison of certain aspects to Christianity.

 

The school has no affiliation to any particular denomination. Religious Education is designed by the local Standing Committee on Religious Education to teach about religion. Religious Education is not intended to promote a set of beliefs or faith in specific religious ideas since this is the proper role of religious institutions themselves. Collective Acts of Worship are broadly but not normally explicitly Christian in character.

Parents have the right to withdraw their child from Religious Education or Collective Worship either in whole or part, in which case the school will arrange alternative provision on an individual basis. This happens extremely infrequently and parents are asked to discuss any concerns with us before making such a request.
