At ASA, we believe that R.E. is at the heart of our curriculum and community. As a church school, we pride ourselves on incorporating Christian Values into every aspect of our learning and all aspects of our school life. We encourage all members of our school community to promote a Christian ethos where respect and love is shown to all.
I believe learning about Christianity along with other faiths, is so important because from the first day at school, R.E. gives all our pupils valuable insights into the diverse beliefs and opinions held by people today. It helps with their own personal development and supports an understanding of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural questions that surface within society.
Across the whole school day and across the whole curriculum we guide our pupils on how being a Christian makes a difference. Not just in worship and in R.E. lessons, but in the way we create opportunities for children to develop a sense of awe, wonder and curiosity.
Incorporating Christian Values into our curriculum, allows for pupils to understand the difference between right and wrong and consequences and actions. It ensures an atmosphere of encouragement, acceptance and provides vital stepping stones to and from the wider community.
