At Corby Glen Community Primary School, it is our intent that all children, regardless of their starting point, explore what people believe and how the similarities and differences between us shape our communities. We support the children to make sense of religion and belief systems whilst reflecting on their own values and experiences. The curriculum is designed so the children are able to experience cultures and traditions beyond their own and to have the opportunity to ask and answer important questions about faith. As a result, they will become independent and responsible members of a society who understand and explore big questions about religions and worldviews in local, national and global contexts. They will be equipped with systematic knowledge and understanding of a range of religions and worldviews, enabling them to develop their ideas, values and identities. It is our intent that each child develops an awareness and tolerance of living in a multi-cultural society and being mutually respectful towards the beliefs and values of others.
We are a non-denominational school which means that we do not have an act of worship in our school. However, we do have assemblies which sometimes have a Christian theme as well as other themes associated with our school values and British values. We have close links to our local church and Rev Buckman makes regular visits to the school. We know that we live in a broadly Christian community and we join in with the celebrations of the major Christian festivals.
