Religious Education

Although we are a school with Christianity at it's heart, our Religion, Values and Ethics (RVE) is the same as every school in Wales.

 

RVE is the name the Welsh Government has given to Religious Education in the Curriculum for Wales.  RVE is mandatory for all learners aged 3 to 16.  This now sits within the Humanities Area of Learning and Experience (AoLE), along with Geography, History, Business Studies and Social Studies. RVE is still locally determined and therefore, as well as having regard to the Curriculum for Wales Framework Guidance on Hwb, all schools in Monmouthshire must have regard to the Monmouthshire Agreed Syllabus for RVE when designing their school curriculum.   

From September 2022, there will be no parental right to withdraw primary aged pupils from RVE as the new Curriculum for Wales is implemented in their year group. The parental right to withdraw will remain in place until their year group becomes subject to the Curriculum for Wales.

There is a new and exciting service in Wales called Parent Talk Wales.  

 

There is a lot of pressure on parents and families at the

moment. Parents in Wales can now access this new

service to get support with anything that’s worrying them

about family life and parenting.
