We follow the Bristol Locally Agreed Religious Education Syllabus and each year group teaches one whole day of RE each term. During those days, the children are able to immerse themselves in a variety of activities, exploring the faith, belief and culture of all religions and beliefs.
Visits to beautiful places of worship, meeting people and leaders of different faiths, tasting and sharing food from other cultures and listening to music, stories and beliefs from different religions, help our children have a deeper knowledge and understanding of the world in which we live. Our aim is to celebrate and respect diversity and encourage children to respect all faiths and beliefs whilst enjoying learning about themselves.
Parents and carers have the right to withdraw their child from RE and collective worship sessions should they wish to and this can be discussed with the Headteacher.
SMSC – (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development)
At Victoria Park, we develop each child’s SMSC through our teaching of RE, P4C, Jigsaw (PSHE) and our school values (Gratitude, Honesty, Respect, Kindness, Determination and Co-operation). Every child is encouraged to join in discussions, offer their opinions and listen to the viewpoint of others.
Spiritual – Explore beliefs and experience; respect faiths, feelings and values; enjoy learning about oneself, others and the surrounding world; use imagination and creativity; reflect
Throughout all of the assemblies at Victoria Park, we emphasise our school values and the importance of being kind, caring and happy.
Welcome to our school website - please come in and take a look around. Do you know our six school values? They are co-operation, respect, determination, gratitude, honesty and kindness.
