School assemblies are an important part of the school's ethos, they offer an opportunity to develop a sense of community. Harvest, Christmas, Shrove Tuesday and Easter are occasions celebrated at the school. Parents have the right to withdraw their child from collective worship either in its entirety, or parts of it. Parents can do so by contacting their child's teacher. Alternative provision is made for pupils under these circumstances. 


The emphasis of religious education is linked to the children’s own experiences in their everyday lives, emphasising religion’s altruistic and caring aspects. Learning about different religions offers an opportunity to celebrate diversity, to explore social influences and ponder some of life’s big questions.
