Religious Education and Collective Worship
The school is a Church in Wales Voluntary Controlled School and has strong links with St Teilo’s church and its associated community. Each school day features an assembly for collective worship and is an important part of our school day. Visitors are invited to lead some of our assemblies. RE is planned and taught throughout the school and where possible is linked to topics and themes. RE and collective worship link to a different value each half term. It is hoped that RE will encourage pupils in their personal search for the meaning and purpose of life through an exploration of religious and spiritual beliefs and concepts. We believe that RE encourages a reflective approach to living, knowledge and understanding of religious beliefs and practices and a development of personal skills in forming reasoned opinions, based on evidence and argument. Religious Education makes a strong contribution to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of the pupils. Through the teaching of RE we hope to give the children a sound basis of Christianity and other faiths, through the teaching of values.
Parents may ask that their children are withdrawn from religious assemblies and such requests should be made in writing.
Message to Year 6 Leavers from Bishop Cherry
Weekly Reflections from Bishop Cherry
The Church in Wales believes and proclaims the Good News of Jesus Christ. This is Good News, because it encourages each one of us to realise that God loves us, that he has gone out of his way to meet us in the person of his Son, in whom he accepts us as we are. He asks us to draw on his strength to live life to the full, and to bring healing to the world.
