St James C of E Primary School

Learning to live, living to learn, learning from Christ

Religious Education

Our school has a strong Christian ethos and close links to St James Church in Muswell Hill.  We actively support those children who are Christians to grow in faith and develop their knowledge of the Bible and Christian teaching.  We follow the Discovery RE scheme of work and some aspects of the LDBS scheme of work, exploring the stories and themes of the Old and New Testaments and core Christian values such as justice and forgiveness.  As part of the National Curriculum we also teach children about world faiths and perspectives.

Worship is part of our school life.  We have daily assemblies and children are encouraged to participate.  Once a week, staff from St, James Church come into school to teach the children in assembly.  The whole school also attends church once or twice a term for special services such as Harvest Festival and Easter.  At Christmas the KS1 children perform a nativity play.  

Our themes for morning assemblies are on a two year rolling programme and you can find out more about them here
