Christian Values

Our school family has chosen 12 values that underpin the ethos at Sherington over a two year cycle. They are values for life based on the teachings of Christianity. The children learn about the values in collective worship, R.E and P.S.H.E lessons and the value for the half-term is displayed around the school. Children are praised and rewarded for showing the value through stickers, verbal praise and in celebration worship. Our values also underpin the British Values of 'law, democracy, individual liberty and mutual respect'.

Collective Worship

Religious Education

Some helpful RE Facts:

  • RE in voluntary controlled schools must be planned in accordance with the requirements of the local authority’s agreed syllabus for RE (LAS).
  • RE in voluntary aided schools is the responsibility of the governors. It is the strong recommendation of the Diocesan Board of Education that VA schools use their local authority syllabus as the basis for their planning.
  • All children should have RE provision from Foundation to KS5
  • Christianity should have a central role in the curriculum (approx. 2/3)
  • At least 5% of curriculum time should be devoted to RE
  • Other faiths should be covered, as outlined in the Locally Agreed syllabus
