As a Church School, RE is a priority of our school. It is considered a core subject so the teaching and learning of RE and standards achieved are closely monitored. Religious Education at St Mary's is based on the Cornwall Agreed Syllabus where Christianity is studied for more than 50% of the time. In Key Stage One the children also learn about Judaism and Islam. At Key Stage Two this is extended to Judaism, Islam and Hinduism. For a detailed breakdown of what is covered in each class please go to the Curriculum tab and click on the Religious Education page.
Collective Worship is an integral part of our school day. It is held every morning and sets the tone for the whole day. It is fully inclusive, invitational and inspiring. Collective Worship each term at St Mary's explores a particular Christian value. The current value that is being explored is Forgiveness. You can explore this value even further with your child at home by downloading the attached leaflet at the top of this page.
Rev Sian Yates from Penlee Cluster is a regular visitor in our school and she leads collective worship every Wednesday. Our children at St Mary's are often in St Mary's Church as part of their RE lessons or representing the school in local services and on the internet. Our strong links with Penlee Cluster also enable our children to attend Holiday Club provision and sessions at soft play in St John's Church.
