Henry Tyndale School

Learning & achieving together

Religious Education and Collective Worship

The school has a duty to provide broadly Christian education and collective worship. Please note that Parents and Guardians have the right to withdraw their children from religious education and collective worship if they so wish. Please make the school aware at the first opportunity should you wish to exercise this right.




Henry Tyndale does not have any specific ties or affiliations to any religious organisation and welcomes children from all backgrounds.




Special Schools must provide religious education for all pupils, so far as is practical, up to the age of 18 (apart from those who have been withdrawn from this by their parents). Teaching at the school follows the agreed syllabus for the area, which is drawn up by a local conference of teachers, local churches and faith groups, and the LEA (the conference is known as a Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education - SACRE).

All syllabuses reflect the fact that the religious traditions in Great Britain are in the main Christian whilst taking account of the teachings and practices of the other principal religions represented in Great Britain. We recognise and value the backgrounds of all the children at our school.
