‘However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?’
All Hallows has an ethos and teaching founded on Christian values and the belief that individuals are created by God and precious in His sight. However, we value and respect children of all faiths, and promote equality and respect. Our vision is:
‘Wanting the best for each member of the school – within a Christian environment, gladly working in partnership with each other, with home, church and the community .’
At All Hallows, we aim to enable the children to acquire core knowledge and understanding of the beliefs and practices of the religions and worldviews which not only shape our shared history and culture, but which guide their development. We want our children to be confident in their own beliefs and values, so that they can respect the religious and cultural identity of others. Our RE curriculum, based on the Nottinghamshire Agreed Syllabus and the Church of England ‘Understanding Christianity’, is planned to progressively engage children with challenging questions about human life, beliefs, communities and ideas. We encourage the children to consider for themselves the value of wisdom from different communities, to disagree respectfully, to be reasonable in their responses to religions and worldviews and to respond by expressing insights into their own and others’ lives.
